Kilpatrick Students Learning with Special Visits from Author, Texans’ Mascot

Students at Kilpatrick Elementary are keeping busy this school year with many educational visits from author and illustrator Vuthy Kuon and Toro, the Houston Texans’ mascot. 

During Kuon’s visit to Kilpatrick, he asked students for suggestions and transformed staff member Rowena Yap into Humpty Dumpty. Kuon visits schools regularly to share his presentation titled “The Million Faces of Humpty.” He has been featured on ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox, visits nearly 100 schools per year and has performed to over one million students and adults at schools and conferences across the country.

Toro, the Texans’ mascot, visited the school and wowed students with his enthusiasm for eating, exercising and staying healthy. Lucky students that answered Toro’s questions correctly were rewarded with a special Toro T-shirt.

Finally, students broke their fundraising goal for the 2011-2012 school year by raising $53,138.00 in candle sales. The students celebrated with Wacky Hair Day.  The top 10 sellers celebrated by spraying silly string on Principal Malynn Rodriguez and Assistant Principal Heather Williams during morning announcements.
