  1. From the planning commission. This school is looking to expand. Seems they are asking the city if they (COH) will allow for the abandonment of a large part of Hadley St. Anyone know if there are any renders for this one? Glad to see a school in this area get some upgraded facilities. Seems like some recreational facilities will be added to this campus as well.
  2. Did any HAIF members go to Montrose Elementary, located at 4001 Stanford, where the High School for the Preforming and Visual Arts is now? I did, from 1957 to 1963. The teachers I had, in descending order from sixth grade to kindergarten, were Mrs. Hudson, Miss Shuttle(s)worth, Mrs. Martines, Miss Shapley, Miss Millard, Mrs. de Ybarrondo, and Mrs. Lucky, as well as 2 music teachers: Mrs. Fogel and Miss Womack. All were, as I remember, quite good teachers. Others whom I didn't have but whom I remember were Mrs. Roper, Mrs. Menier, Mrs. Blackwell, Ms. Luna, and Mr. Schmidt. This latter, one of just a few male teachers, always organized the musical and dramatic programs and did so with much professionalism. Ah, and I just remembered a long-term sub we had once, named Mrs. Giles, who read us Kipling's Rikki Tikki Tavi. Every spring we would have a May Fete, for which we practiced assiduously, and which was (of course) performed outside, we children dancing, in choreographed formation, to music that was probably of Mr. Schmidt's choosing. The school's architecture and layout closely resembled that of Lantrip Elementary, still standing at 100 Telephone road: Spanish-mission style architecture, with arches, open-air corridors, and interior courtyards that had flowers, bushes, and the like. Not infrequently, I wonder about fellow Montrose alumni, and what they remember about the school.
  3. The cost of Katy ISD's new football stadium, which already gained status as the most expensive in Texas at $62.5 million, will now cost even more. http://www.houstonchronicle.com/neighborhood/katy/news/article/Cost-of-Katy-ISD-football-stadium-garners-10420133.php
  4. Hi all, I'm thinking about returning to Houston after 10 years in NYC. I'd like to leave my current career and get my MUP. The only accredited school in Houston appears to be TSU. Does anyone know anything about this program? I'm aware of TSU's less than stellar reputation, but since this is the only program in Houston, does it hold some weight? Additionally, is there anyone who has a graduate degree from another school in Houston that is now practicing Urban Planning? Any insight is appreciated.
  5. There is a great new website about River Oaks Elementary, with a history of the neighborhood, of the school, and a large collection of class photos from the 1930's through the 1970's at http://riveroaksalumni.org
  6. I just noticed this when walking around my neighborhood this evening. Does anybody know the details? I didn't realize there was a school on that block before.
  7. I was born on June 13, 1972 in Houston Texas and I was born and raised in Houston Texas. I went to Judd M. Lewis Elementary School or is it Judd Lewis Elementary School during my childhood. I am wondering if any of my school mates are around? I am curious in learning what has happened to them. What happened to Brandon Carpenter, Eric (do not know his last name?)(I know that he had a sister named Nova)(he was beaten up so badly that he got his leg broken, I believe?), and Clayton (I believe his last name was Cox?)? I used to have a friend name Dawn (forgot her last name?) too? What has happened to all the people that attended school with me during my years at Judd M. Lewis Elementary or is it Judd Lewis Elementary? My friend Clayton traveled to Florida with my grandmother (my grandmother adopted me) and my two aunts and we went to Disney World when we were going to Judd Lewis Elementary School or is it Judd M. Lewis Elementary School. My friend Eric wanted my grandmother to adopt him always and he also gave me a kiss on my cheek on my Birthday (we were at Pipe Organ Pizza). ~Juliet Shohreh Nour~
  8. St. Agnes Academy has bought the old Gillman Dealership property in Sharpstown. The attached letter went out to parents and alumni: ************************************* Dear St. Agnes Academy parents, friends and alumnae: I am excited to announce St. Agnes Academy purchased 18.709 acres of vacant property at the corner of Fondren Road and Bellaire Boulevard today. Acquiring this property, which is just minutes from our existing St. Agnes facilities, marks a major milestone in carrying out our strategic plan. This endeavor supports our mission to provide a state-of-the-art learning facility for our students. Most of you are aware the St. Agnes Board of Directors periodically adjusts the Academy’s strategic plan. Two years ago, we sought input from all of our constituencies and created a blueprint that will guide campus development for the next five years. One of the resulting goals was to have excellent facilities for our school’s programs and activities. After reviewing our existing facilities, we realized the limitations of our present, land-locked campus. Additional parking, athletic fields and events space, and an upgrade to our auditorium (built in 1963), are major issues that surfaced in the review. Our assessment found that, in order to expand, St. Agnes would need to either relocate some of our athletic programs or build a parking garage on our current campus to free up room for field space. Our Board of Directors considered both options very carefully before moving forward with researching and purchasing land. Acquiring this property is an exciting step toward making our vision for the future become reality. It is the beginning of a process that will require much effort, many prayers, and your continued financial support. We are blessed to have such a generous community partner with us in advancing our mission, and we look forward to your participation in the future. We will keep you posted on our progress in the months ahead. Thank you for your continued support of our efforts at St. Agnes as we provide the very best in Catholic, college-preparatory education for Houston-area young women. God bless you, Sr. Jane Meyer, O.P., Head of School ******************************** There's also an article in Swamplot about it. Needless to say, everyone in the surrounding neighborhoods is ecstatic about this development.
