Congratulations to OUR Principal!
Dr. Joe Coleman has been named as a 2014 Finalist for H-E-B's Excellence in Education Award. Dr. Coleman attributes this accolade to the hard work of his students and staff. "You know, this came as a surprise to me. I definitely could not have been in consideration for this award if it were not for my teachers and the wonderful things they do for our kids. I am truly honored!" Although he is very modest, it should be noted that Dr. Coleman has received recognition from H-E-B in his previous tenures as principal (2007: San Angelo Central High School, 2010: Fort Bend Willowridge High School).
The North Shore Mustangs, District Champions, defeated Converse Judson 57-45 in the 5A Boys' Basketball State Final Playoff on Saturday, March 8, 2014.

North Shore Senior's Counseling Team has been working diligently this year to re-structure our Counselor’s Corner. We have been so thrilled about the activities and participation of our students. We would like to reach more of our students, but the lack of technology to support them has been a major setback. We want to make sure our students have the materials they need to succeed, so we just created a request for Counselor’s Corner and poetry and prose at DonorsChoose.org
COUNSELOR'S CORNER TECHWORK is the name of the project. Every dollar counts.
