10th Grade AP World History

A Message from Mrs. Adcox:

Hello all,

Your summer assignment for 10th grade AP World History is attached to this email. Ms. Penny and I require this as entrance to the course. It will be due August 28th for A-Day/August 29th for B-Day and a brief quiz will be given over the contents of this assignment. Failure to complete the summer assignment by the deadline will result in your removal from AP World History. Don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns about the assignment. Thanks 

Best wishes,
Mrs. Adcox

Senior Photos (Class of 2024)

Prestige Portraits will be the sole photographer for senior pictures for our next yearbook. They will be on the DeBakey HSHP campus on August 11 and 14 when rising seniors can take photos with a drape or tuxedo.

If you cannot attend either of those days, you may schedule at the Prestige Portrait office in Sugar Land. A flyer with details is listed below. When you schedule at the Prestige studio, you have a wider selection of backdrops and poses.

The yearbook photo deadline is October 14th.

Class of 2023 Senior Breakfast

As we end the 2022-2023 school year, we wanted to send off our Class of 2023 seniors with a wonderful breakfast on their last day at DeBakey HSHP.

Thank you to our fantastic Fundraising team for coordinating the event along with the parent volunteers who came to help. We want to also send another special thank you to H-E-B Pantry Foods for sponsoring the drinks and cups for the breakfast.

To our new graduates, we wish you nothing but the best in your future endeavors and look forward to seeing what amazing things you accomplish in the future!

Reminder: Volunteer Requirements

REMINDER:  Every DeBakey student must have at least 100 community service to graduate with a DeBakey diploma.

Remember, colleges look at the community service and how you give back to your community when choosing a candidate to accept into their school. The summer time is a great chance to get caught up and to give back to the community.
