Toys for Tots

Evelyn D. Houston Elementary Beta Club and Honor Society has teamed up with the United States Marine Corps to collect new, unwrapped toys for Christmas gifts for less fortunate children in the community. You can help these kids experience Christmas by donating a new toy!

Our goal is to collect 150 new, unwrapped toys by December 15, 2014.  Please help us meet this goal by donating today.  You can drop your new toy in the box located in the front hall at school.  We appreciate your help!

Thank you,
Beta Club and Honor Society Members

Community Helpers



Friday, October 24th, was a very busy fun day for 1st-graders at Houston Elementary School. 
 Friday was the end of our Wonder's reading lesson on community helpers.  To help wrap things up, we had an awesome group of dedicated visitors.  The Police, Firefighters, and Emergency Medical Personal of Talladega all showed up complete with really cool vehicles. The kids climbed in a police car and explored a firetruck. They even got to see how the water sprayer worked.  Of course, we all got to hear the sirens.
