My School, Facon Pass Elementary School is an Exemplery School of CCISD.
It is among the TOP 10 Schools in the district. It is the only school that has the Dr. RenzuelieIt Pilot Program
available to all the students with different funfilled clusters. We had a successful year with this program and towards
the end of the school year had the Show Case day! Everyone came to watch what we learnt through this very unique and
one of a kind, very interesting way of learning!
Our School is electronically monitored not just the school premises but also the school
buses. Thus making this place safer for us to work with our full concentration. Here at FPE we
the students give our 100%. No wonder, although just 5 years old, our school is on the road to a very bright future
and is getting ready to set an example for the rest of the schools, to follow! Here we all, i.e the students,
our principal, teachers, staff and the parents are striving hard for a better education for all of us.
Our Princial Mr. Stevens has earned his Doctorate degree. Now he is Dr. Stevens.
He takes great interest in not only our education but also in our accomplishments. He always motivates us. He
is very jolly. He invited 7 students from the entire school to have lunch with the Superintendant of Schools, Dr. Sandra
Mossman. I was among the lucky ones. He always announces Students accomplishments early in the
morning at the time of announcements. He has been offered a very good opportunity at the CCISD office as the Director
of Technology. Now that he has decided to take up this new post we will really miss him at our school. But in
a way he will still be with us at the CCISD main office, hmmmmm...keeping an eye on us from there...
At FPE we have our own publishing company " The Voyager Press", Student Safety Patrol,
Environmental Commitee, Lego League, and 4th grade student's News-letter started by Miss Hartman's class.
Our fourth grade has a bunch of very good readers, leaders, as well as thinkers.
Miss Hartman, our home-room teacher, challenges us in Math and Science. Ask any of my collegues and you will
get the same answer, " She is fun to be around and yet she is 'The Boss'! "
Miss Raines on the other hand is our switch teacher for Language. She makes us work
alot at school but one thing best about her is that she never gives us home-work just like Miss Hartman. Therefore
sometimes we end up missing our Recess, which is ofcourse not at all fun ! But she is a great teaher
and we all love her!
