Pearland Participates in H-E-B Healthy Community Challenge

Posted on Tuesday, 27 August 2013

Pearland is participating in the second-annual Healthy at H-E-B Community Challenge which launches Sept. 1. This eight-week competition challenges communities across the state to compete to see which can demonstrate the greatest commitment to healthy living. The Healthy at H-E-B Community Challenge unites and energizes schools, businesses, organizations, community members, and leaders towards the common goal of transforming their community’s health.

Why It Matters:

Texas’ communities are struggling more than ever, burdened by the financial and social constraints of our unhealthy society. Employers face the challenge of supporting ever-growing healthcare costs. Schools continue to lose funding, making it difficult to foster healthy behaviors amongst their students and faculty. Ultimately, we all share responsibility for the fact that today’s youth are the first generation in 100 years to have a lower life expectancy than their parents. However, we know that by working together we can ease these burdens and make healthy the norm in communities throughout our great state. Individuals have the power to positively influence their own health and the health of their community.

That’s what IT’S TIME TEXAS and the Healthy at H-E-B Community Challenge is all about!

Pearland’s goal is 250,000 points. We need your help!

A school bond proposal of approximately $212.5 million to build Pearland’s third high school, fund design and related costs for a career and technical education facility and buy land for a new football stadium and natatorium among other things is now set to go before voters next November according to a release from Alvin Independent School District (AISD).

AISD board members approved the measure by a vote of five to two at a special meeting held Thursday (August 8).

Board President Tiffany Wennerstrom, trustees Regan Metoyer, Cheryl Harris, Charles McCauley and Nicole Tonini, the only Pearland resident currently serving on the board, voted in favor of the election. Voting against the bond election were trustees Mike Lansford and Sue Stringer.

The district release states the bond package also includes an undisclosed amount of money for technology upgrades, a satellite bus station, a new Godwin Ag Facility and increased campus security as well as construction costs for a new elementary school, a new junior high school in the Manvel area, and renovations at Alvin Junior High. In addition, funding is included to purchase land for two additional elementary schools and a new junior high school.

“Student enrollment has been steadily increasing in Alvin ISD and according to Templeton Demographics the District should expect to see a continued increase of approximately 800 students a year for the next five years,” said Dr. Fred Brent, superintendent of schools was quoted in the release. “We are a dynamic learning organization committed to excellence for all students and every program, and we must prepare for the continued growth of our District; in order to ensure that the students of Alvin ISD continue to receive the best educational opportunities possible.

Early voting is scheduled to begin Monday, October 21 and will be available until November 1. Election Day is November 5.
