Thanks y’all! Really appreciate you

Wandering in the park this winter? You might spot this tree! Meet possumhaw: a native, deciduous holly tree. The beautiful berries of native possumhaw attract songbirds and provide food for mammals and other birds. This small tree is common to the thickets at the edge of forests and by trails and is an ideal site for nesting. ... See MoreSee Less

We were lucky this week on the Second Saturday Bird Survey to spot a handful of Field Sparrows by the 610 parking lot. They were hiding in the grass among a flock of 100 Chipping Sparrows – so finding them was a bit like playing “Where’s Waldo?” Field Sparrows may not look exciting, but they really are special birds. They live in prairies and savannas and do not like highly disturbed habitat, so their population has declined by almost 70% since the 1960s. We are happy that they have chosen to spend the winter here in our restored savanna habitat.

Queen Victoria took the throne at just 18 years old—and she would go on to become Britain’s second-longest ruling monarch. She died #onthisday in 1901.

See her portraits (she was the first British ruler to be photographed!) in “Tudors to Windsors,” closing soon. www.mfah.org/royals

Not born on this day—died on this day.

We want to congratulate Field Elementary for being one of only two HISD campuses who have been nominated for the prestigious 2019 Blue Ribbon Schools designation. A total of 26 Texas schools have been nominated by the Texas Education Agency.

The national Blue Ribbon Schools award is given annually to public and private elementary, middle, and high schools where students perform at very high levels. The award is also given to schools where exemplary progress has been made to close achievement gaps among subpopulations.

“I feel extremely proud of everyone who works diligently to make our students succeed,” Field Elementary Principal John Hendrickson said. “It is a reflection of the daily hard work by our dedicated faculty, staff, parents, and students. We want to thank the district for giving us the resources we need to produce today’s global scholars and tomorrow’s world-class leaders.”

Field Elementary serves students in grades Pre-K through fifth in our community. Its academic programs focus on meeting individual needs by implementing early intervention strategies for all students, whether they are in Gifted and Talented or Special Education Programs. In February, Field Elementary will celebrate its 90th anniversary. We hope we can be there to help them celebrate and congratulate them again on their nomination!

♻️We understand that recycling and trash pick-up has been a headache for all across the city lately. So much so that we invited City of Houston Solid Waste Management to our Monthly Meeting & Mixer last night. The department’s exceptionally friendly and forthcoming representative, Desmond, explained that the chronic stress of old equipment (trucks) leaves very little wiggle room and can create a chain reaction of prolonged delays. They totally understand!

📝 Read below for an updated schedule. Most of us in the HHA service area are Thursday B-week.

RECYCLING COLLECTION SCHEDULE UPDATE

HOUSTON - Please note the following adjustments to the City of Houston’s recycling collection schedule. Due to the schedule adjustments do not place your recycling (green) container at the curb until Wednesday or Saturday.

For future updates and collection schedules please visit our website, monitor our social media and 3-1-1 customer service center.

Thank you for your patience as we work on resolving this matter. Residents are also encouraged to take advantage of the six (6) neighborhood depositories closest to your home. For more department information visit www.houstontx.gov/solidwaste/
