We recently moved to Houston from Dallas. This was my daughters first year here and she attended first grade at Elrod Elementary. There were some pros and cons. As far as the new principal, family events, and letting the parents get very involved was great! On the other hand my daughters teacher was friendly and did teach her new things, (as I expect she would) but most of the school year they didn't have homework or any papers coming home. To let me know anything. Overall she had a great year but we will be going to a new school this year.
