What is your favorite annual event at school?
Day of Kindness is a day where we honor one of our former students who passed away two years ago. She was known for being nice and helpful. So, in her memory, students decide what kind of good deed they want to do that day and at the end of the day they perform it. This year, my class cleaned the entire campus. It was awesome to honor her memory.
Where are some great places to eat nearby?
We are near Westheimer, so there are many places. Potbelly, Tan Tan, Chipotle, etc.
