Third-grade students at South Point Elementary School completed a fundraising project to benefit hurricane victims.

The students raised money to benefit elementary schools in the Houston area that were affected by Hurricane Harvey. They sold lollipops in the third-grade classrooms for 50 cents apiece to fellow students and staff at South Point Elementary on September 8-15.

A total of $641.52 was raised by South Point Elementary third-grade students from the lollipop sales. The money will be sent to the Houston Independent School District, which is the largest school district in Texas and the seventh-largest in the United States.

The photo below is the third-grade students at South Point Elementary School.

Senate Bill 638 (2016) required the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to create a website about the trauma-informed schools initiative that includes information for schools and parents regarding the trauma-informed approach and a guide for schools on how to become trauma-informed schools.

The implementation of a trauma-informed approach is an ongoing organizational change process. A “trauma-informed approach” is not a program model that can be implemented and then simply monitored by a fidelity checklist. Rather, it is a profound paradigm shift in knowledge, perspective, attitudes and skills that continues to deepen and unfold over time. Some leaders in the field are beginning to talk about a “continuum” of implementation, where organizations move through stages. The continuum begins with becoming trauma aware and moves to trauma sensitive to responsive to being fully trauma informed.

Purpose: To ensure that agencies do no harm; to assess the implementation of basic principle of trauma-informed approaches in various organizational settings; to develop a common language and framework for discussion; and to help increase the effectiveness of services, wherever and whatever they are, by increasing awareness of trauma.

Application: To a very wide range of settings, including but not limited to behavioral health services.

Use:

*Not for formal evaluation or certification, but for informational purposes

*To help anyone who is interested (clients, advocates, other agencies, etc.) determine whether a particular agency or setting is meeting basic criteria for integration of trauma principles

*To help agencies identify where they are on the continuum and where they want to be. Organizations can choose the appropriate place on the continuum based on their needs and setting.

South Point Elementary School observed the 9/11 Anniversary on Monday, Sept. 11.

Remembering the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, South Point staff and students circled around the flag pole in front of the building. They were joined by area emergency responders, including members of the Washington Police and Fire Departments, members of the Washington VFW, and School District of Washington officials.

The group recited the Pledge of Allegiance together and then sang the U.S. National Anthem, “The Star Spangled Banner.” A moment of silence was then held.

Following the ceremony outside, the emergency responders, veterans and other guests each were assigned to a classroom at South Point Elementary in the younger grades and spoke to the students about the 9/11 Anniversary and read them a children’s book.

Photos from the 9/11 festivities at South Point Elementary on Monday, Sept. 11, are below.
