Continuing the Tradition of Giving at College Park High School College Park High School and PTO have adopted CISDвЂ™s Armstrong Elementary, located north of the Woodlands, to help provide much needed assistance, support and mentoring to disadvantaged children. College ParkвЂ™s new adopted family Armstrong Elementary is considered a вЂњTitle 1вЂќ school which is defined as a low social, economic school with little parental support. Over the past four years, the College Park PTO has had the honor of orchestrating a holiday party for our former adopted elementary school Runyan. TWCP wishes to continue its tradition this year by helping to host another holiday party for the whole Armstrong school, over 700 students! Each student will make an ornament or similar craft, decorate cookies, enjoy a snack and participate in a book swap. This project, being so large, will require the additional support of our school and community. We will need craft supplies, snack items, and the sum of 725 age appropriate new reading books. By making a cash donation, these funds will help pay for the items mentioned above and give these children a wonderful, lasting memory. You may choose to become a classroom Co-sponsor or a Grade Level Co-sponsor. For cosponsorship opportunities (families or businesses) see Donation Form. You can also help by donating a new condition book for Pre-K through 4th grade level. Please help The College Park PTO with this wonderful holiday project by donating new books, sending a check (payable to TWCP PTO) or giving a few hours of your time to help with the big event Thursday, December 18th. It will take a force to accomplish such a big event, but the College Park Family always is willing to help others in need! Books and checks can be turned in to the front office at CP.

Garrett Soileau started playing rugby his freshman year. Like most individuals who start playing rugby, he quickly fell in love and learned to play the game well. He was selected for Texas High Performance teams every year and his senior year he played for the Rocky Mountain Challenge AllTournament Team and USA Rugby Stars and Stripes, reserved for the top 50 Boys and top 50 Girls selected from Regional All Star Tournaments. In response to the question of what he loves most about rugby, Garrett explains, "The fact that everyone has the chance to prove themselves. In rugby everyone has the chance to take the ball in for the score and feel what itвЂ™s like to put points on the board for your team. Forwards have to be able to pass just as good as backs and backs have to be able to go blow up a ruck if needed. You basically have to be able to play any position which isn't like any other sport out there. "To me rugby means opportunity. This sport has given me so many opportunities that I would have never gotten if it weren't for rugby. Because of rugby I've had the privilege to represent my state and even represent my country. I've made friends with people all over the United States and even overseas because of all the opportunities rugby has presented me with." Garrett is perfect example of everyone getting a chance to prove themselves in rugby. He most recently was invited to the U20 Junior Men's All American World Trophy team. He also plays for Arkansas State University Rugby Team. Come check out the fastest growing sport in the nation with the largest rugby club in Texas!
