Academy of Engineering The Academy of Engineering had a spectacular month in October. Lawrence Crawford got to show our business partners from the East End Chamber of Commerce what a typical class project was like for them. November’s upcoming event for the 9th and 10th graders is the field trip to Rice University. As we round the corner for this semester I congratulate all AOE students for a job well done so far this semester. See You There!!

JROTC The JROTC Department has had a number of events and activities, but those that stand out are below: On October 7, 2011 the JROTC Department held its Annual Spaghetti Dinner. The cadets organized, setup and treated their families for a little JROTC Drill Team Entertainment and great food. October 14, 2011 the JROTC Department opened its doors to our Parent Boosters Meeting. Our ultimate goal is to seek parent support in becoming more involved in their child’s education and the JROTC Program. As we move into this school year we are reaching out to parents to assist with various events, fund raising, and just supporting their child and their education. Homecoming 2011 the Honor Guard did their part once again in making a difference in this BIG Chavez HS event during the Chavez vs. Bellaire Homecoming Football Game. You Looked GREAT Honor Guard! On October 15, 2011 the JROTC was extended an invitation by State Representative District 145, Carol Alvarado to participate in the "State of the District Breakfast" which was held at HCC Southeast Campus, Houston, TX.
