Shadow Oaks Elementary Students Learn About Science and Career Choice with MOLU

Science and technology were alive at Shadow Oaks Elementary recently as the Offshore Energy Center's MOLU took center stage.

The MOLU (Mobile Oilfield Learning Unit) is a traveling exhibit that features six self-contained learning centers with hands-on activities geared to engage students in the study of science, energy and technology.

Artwork by 15 Spring Branch ISD elementary, middle and high school students will hang soon in the public Hayloft Gallery at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo.

In January, SBISD hosted its annual K-12 Rodeo Art Exhibit at the Altharetta Yeargin Art Museum, which drew hundreds of students and parents during a two-day viewing and later judging session. Students who were awarded Best of Show, Gold Medal or Special Merit by Rodeo officials will have their original art displayed in the Hayloft Gallery at Reliant Park.

The Houston Rodeo this year will be held from Feb. 25 through March 17.

Memorial High School students are dancing to a new beat this school year with the addition of a drum club on campus. The Drum Club promises to be an adventure in music and cultural exploration. It's just one of the many extracurricular activities available to students on campus.

For students to be successful, we believe they need to explore and discover their interests. As educators, we must focus on educating the whole child.

When students are interested in what they are studying, they become passionate life-long learners.
