Welcome back!!! We hope you all had wonderful winter break.



Thanks to all of the parents who donated to the Holiday Teacher Appreciation Luncheon.  You all really came through and allowed the committee to get each teacher a gift card.   A huge thank you to the committee chairs Ziba Mehra and Trina Nguyen.

Holiday Teacher Appreciation



Please help the PTO make this Teacher Appreciation event special.  The committee would like to purchase a $25 gift card for DeBakey’s fabulous Faculty and Staff, and we are still in need of monetary donations to make this happen.  If you are able, please donate to this event.

You may donate via paypal: or by dropping off the money to the front desk in a sealed envelope with Teacher Appreciation written on the front.

The Teacher Appreciation event will take place this week therefore, all donations are due by WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2019.   If you have any questions or concerns please email the committee co-chair Ziba Mehra at

Thank you so much for supporting the DeBakey Teachers and staff.

Welcome back. We hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving break. Several of our very own DeBakey students spent some of their Thanksgiving day at the George R. Brown with the City Wide Club, serving Thanksgiving meals to hundreds of people.  There were there bright and early to volunteer and it looks like they had fun too.  Here are a few pictures they shared with us:
