As MLK Day comes to a close and we look at the week ahead with students, would like to post an educational quote by Martin Luther King Jr - "The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education."

We had our Grand Opening today. Lots of teachers, staff, and students worked hard to ensure our ceremony went well - and it did. Proud of everyone. We had the support of our HISD Trustee, our Interim Superintendent, NW Area Superintendent, elected officials, and many other HMW departments. Thanks to the Bond Dept, CMC, Heery, Corgan, and HISD for everything. Great opportunities now and in the future for our students. It was also great to see all the past BJ family as well - Principals Douglas and Givens, Ms Keith, and many more.

We were able to get our large Barbara Jordan collage moved to the new building this morning - it would not fit through any door so we had to wait until demo started. We still have some work to get it placed in the new building - including getting through doors here. If you know which class built it in place at the old building please post a reply - would like to hear the story behind the picture.

Demolition of our old building has started. This will be parking, new pre-education wing, and green space. I meet a lot of BJ grads who are very proud of their school and we look forward to inspiring another generation with our new state of the art labs and programs. Alumni - we are available most Thursday’s (beginning this week) from 4 - 5 pm for tours of the new building. Please call the school at 713-636-6900 if you are interested.

Put together a short (9 minute) video showing the construction of the new Barbara Jordan Career Center throughout the last year and a half. We have a couple of programs still being finished, but nearly complete for Phase 1. Phase 2 is the Child Development Program. A Grand Opening date is TBD. Looking forward to providing many opportunities for students from our partner schools.
