DeBakey Fundraiser / Wreaths Across America – Houston

Wreaths Across America – Houston


We would like to invite you to join us in raising funds for Wreaths Across America-Houston, an organization that really deserves our support. Raising money to place a live Maine wreath upon all of the almost 70,000 fallen hero’s gravesites at the Houston National Cemetery is a truly humbling experience. We are proud to do our part to help.

Wreaths are only $15.00 each and it includes all shipping and handling. They are fully tax deductible too!


The national Wreaths Across America office has approved that non-profit groups can sell wreaths for $15.00 and $5.00 of those dollars will be rebated for their own internal fundraiser.

Why choose this fundraiser?

  • There is no product shipped to you
  • You have no product to deliver
  • There is no product to spoil or go bad


Click HERE to go to our own fundraising page and then click the Donate Now link just above the thermometer to donate for wreaths.

You’re Invited – Costa Rica 2018


Costa Rica Trip 2018





In June 2018, a group of DeBakey students will have the opportunity to participate on a trip of a life-time to Costa Rica. There is limited space with only 10 spots available on a first-come, first-served basis for this opportunity. We are holding a meeting for those who are interested in learning more about this awesome opportunity.


In conjunction with EF Educational Tours, Mrs. Sukhu will be taking a group of students on a 9-day excursion to see Costa Rica. EF Tours, in business for over 50 years, is the world leader in international education with more than 1 million students traveling with their programs each year.


About the tour: The deeper you go into Costa Rica’s rainforests, the more engaged all your senses become. Arenal Volcano towering over the trees below is a sight you’ll never forget, while the unmistakable sound of howler monkeys in Manuel Antonio National Park will echo for years. Feeling the mist in your face as you zip line through the Santa Elena Cloud Forest is as memorable as the ride itself. And the smell of tropical flowers is just as beautiful as the taste of the fruit.


I am hosting my informational meeting on Tuesday, October 17th at 6pm in room 408 at DeBakey to answer all of your questions. Interested parents and students should plan to attend in order to receive important information on the trip itinerary, cost, and trip dates. I sincerely hope you will come and learn more!


If you plan to attend, please RSVP by going to

The informational meeting to hear more about this amazing trip to Costa Rica will be on Tuesday, October 17th at 6pm in room 408. Please email if you have any questions! Hope to see you there! – T. Sukhu

before October 14th so I know how many people to expect.

11th Graders mock-PSAT

11th graders are having their mock-PSAT test this Saturday in the atrium from 8:30-11:30. Parents are requested to drop off their children before 8:30 and pick them up at 11:30. Since the test will be in the atrium area, there isn’t a place for parents to wait for the children inside the building.   Thanks for your cooperation.


Save the Date – 45th Anniversary


Thank you PTO

Our DeBakey HSHP PTO has been hard at work at making sure our new building feels like home.
They have donated a beautiful brick paver wall to add to the beautification of one of our outside patio areas.

They also made sure that our teachers and staff were awake and ready to seize the day by having commercial Keurig systems installed in every lounge!
They currently have multiple other projects in the works that we can’t wait to have revealed.  We are grateful for all the hard work they do for our campus

Back to School Dress Code Change

Hello DeBakey Scholars,

As you may have heard, Superintendent Carranza has relaxed the dress code to allow families to recover from damage caused by Hurricane Harvey flooding. Here are some pointers you can use to guide your clothing choices.

  1. If you purchased uniforms, and your uniforms were not damaged by flood waters, you may wear them.
  2. You may wear jeans and t-shirts. T-shirts should be school-appropriate.
  3. Any clothing you choose should be appropriate for school; for example: knee-length shorts and skirts.
  4. For comfort, you should plan to bring a jacket or sweater.
  5. Please wear closed-toe shoes.

Resources are available for students needing additional clothing assistance. We look forward to seeing you Monday, September 11, 2017.


New Building Traffic and Parking

Working Together for Our School Community


Thursday, July 19, 2017


Our new building has brought many opportunities. We are now situated in the heart of the Texas Medical Center (TMC), within walking distance of well-known research facilities and medical institutions. Our new location is convenient for many DeBakey HSHP families. The facility is beautiful.

Still, there are two very important challenges that, if we work together, we will overcome. Those challenges are traffic and parking. With your help, student arrivals and departures will be safe and orderly. We will maintain traffic flow that will allow drivers to get where they need to go in good time, and we will limit traffic back-ups.

Arrivals and Departures

Our new parking lot has one driveway that is used for entrances and exits. Drivers will enter the parking lot from Pressler Street, and exit the lot via Montclair. Inside the lot, there are numbered parking spaces as well as Drop-off and Pick-up, Handicapped, and Reserved spaces. Although numbered parking spaces will be assigned to students, we expect to have spaces available so that parents will be able to park and attend to school related business or wait for a student.  If all numbered spaces are full, or to drop-off or pick-up a student, or to allow a child time to get items out of the vehicle, drivers should use the Drop-off and Pick-up spaces. Using these spaces will free up the drive lane for moving vehicles.

Traffic Flow Inside the Parking Lot

Directional arrows and cones indicate the traffic path. When cars move against the designated route, they cause traffic to stall. Stalled traffic inside the lot leads to congestion at the driveway and into the street, making the experience of entering and leaving the parking lot very unpleasant. Please follow the indicated path.

When driving through the parking lot, please maintain a low speed. Students will be walking among the cars. They may not be easy to see, or they may run out into the drive lane without warning. Low speed will guarantee time to stop and avoid an accident.

Parking Garage 8

TMC Parking Garage 8 is located at the corner of Pressler and Holcombe. Garage entry and exit drive lanes are located on Pressler, along the same path that leads to the DeBakey parking lot. TMC representatives have asked us to please be mindful of the garage and keep the entry and exit lanes open. Let’s demonstrate to the other TMC institutions that we are good neighbors. Please do not block Garage 8.

No Parking


Please be informed that cars cannot park on Montclair, Pressler, Holcombe, or Main.


The heaviest traffic will likely occur within the first 30- to 45- minutes after dismissal. To ease some of the congestion, we have developed a staggered pick-up schedule. Delaying pick-up will allow school buses to pick up students and move out, creating space for parent drivers. Your support by way of following the schedule is appreciated.

  • 9th Grade 3:30 p.m. – 3:40 p.m.
  • 10th Grade 3:40 p.m. – 3:50 p.m.
  • 11th and 12th Grades 3:50 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Patience Please

Be aware of the other drivers, and practice a little consideration. Doing so will help preserve good traffic movement. Above all else, be patient. Remaining calm is good for you and your child. Traffic back-ups will be relieved as quickly as possible. Our capable police officers will help all drivers keep moving.

What an exciting time it is for the DeBakey High School family! We look forward to seeing you soon.
