Fort Sam Houston Elementary School 2nd grade teacher, Mrs. Kim Ware, was recognized and awarded the KENS 5 Excel Award on Tuesday, November 13th in a school wide assembly. In her nomination it read, "She sets an example of outstanding teacher leadership at Fort Sam Houston Elementary School. She shows up every single day with a smile on her face and she is never afraid to try something new. She was one of the first teachers to implement restorative discipline and circles in her classroom."
Several Fort Sam Houston Elementary School students loaded and donated items for Homeless Veterans and the VA Hospital. Additionally, the visited veterans at a retirement home where they shared hugs, cards, and smiles. We are appreciative of all the hard work Mrs. Liz Lee put forth to orchestrate this event and connect our students with the community.
