Thursday, Aug. 10 • 2-5 p.m. • Hiett Gymnasium

The School-A-Palooza was created to provide our Houston families with a little extra support before they start school, and to provide a family-fun event to kick-off the start of a new school year.  It’s important that we communicate clearly that we can not commit to buying all school supplies for all students in the district. Through the generosity of our community, we are going to work hard to minimize the supply lists and serve individual students and families who have signed up and provided the School-A-Palooza with the necessary information.
