Sam Houston will only allow the following shirt colors for the 2014-2015 school year: Red, white and navy blue. More information can be found on both the GISD website and the Policies and Procedures section of the Sam Houston Website.

SHMS and Avery Johnson

Sam Houston's 7th Grade students had the great privilege of listening to a motivation speech by the one-and-only Avery Johnson. Mr. Johnson's message to always be a "climber" was nothing short of inspirational. The experience is something that our students will hopefully take with them for the rest of their lives!
