Post Oak School home at last after Harvey
The Post Oak School in Bellaire is taking a final step this weekend toward recovery from Hurricane Harvey, preparing for the return of its elementary school classrooms to campus on Tuesday.
Parent volunteers began teaming up with faculty and staff after school on Friday to move contents of the seven Montessori classrooms from their temporary home at adjacent Episcopal HS back to the repaired Post Oak campus at 4601 Bissonnet St.
Displaced young children were the first to return to their classrooms after Harvey required quick arrangements and generosity of other school communities to keep the learning on track, and 170 primary-level (preschool) children, who had been learning in one giant classroom in the school gym, and the administrative offices, were next.
On Friday, preparing for the return, Post Oak students said goodbye and thanks to Episcopal Head of School Ned Smith with a group hug.
