Austin Knights Choir
Twenty-one 5th grade girls from the Austin Knights Choir participated in the 4th Annual "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" Choir Day at the HCISD Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, October 15th. Almost 400 girls from choirs all over the district in elementary, middle and high schools had a fun day making beautiful music together learning all about the various choral music programs available in our district.
Miss Eunice and the 5th grade boys choir members had a most excellent musical day Thursday, October 24th at the HCISD Performing Arts Center making music with almost 300 other young men in elementary, middle school and high school choral programs learning more about what it means: "We're the Men of the Choir".  The boys enjoyed pizza for lunch after a morning of singing songs made just for the male voice. 

Spanish Class
In Spanish class students are reviewing "los animales" (pets/mascotas), learning vocabulary for "la familia" (family) and the significance of Día de los Muertos. Our students were able to display their pets on our class altar/ofrenda. Our students have been very excited of coming to Spanish class.
