National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS)

Armstrong is committed to student excellence and recognizing student effort. In aligning with this goal, the school has become one of the charter elementary schools for the National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS). Fourth and fifth grade Aviators who have an 89.6% GPA and who demonstrate both responsibility and leadership are invited to be part of Armstrong's chapter of NEHS.  New members were recently welcomed into the NEHS with an induction ceremony.

For more information about the organization, please contact NEHS Advisor, Mrs. Sherri Beal.

Morning announcements crew

Our campus is fortunate to have a news room from which a base crew of students direct a rotating group of students through our morning announcements. The announcements are viewed each day on the campus electronic kiosk as well as in each classroom. The base crew of students pick up valuable technological skills as well as learn the value of working as a team.

Aviator Aces 

Interesting in serving?  Starting in October 2121-2022 school year, everyone wants the opportunity to do something special, and we are recruiting dads to do just that.   Below is a list of some of the things Aviator Aces do:

  •  Greet students in the morning. 

  •  Throw the football around with students at recess 

  •  Guide students in the cafeteria during lunch 

  •  Support learning in the classroom by working with kids in small groups 

  •  Help the teachers with classroom jobs - cut out lamination, pull workbook pages from books, etc. 

  •  Introduce yourself on the morning announcements with your child(ren)

The day will focus on supporting the efforts of our school while recognizing the role of fathers in our community.  You don’t even have to be a dad to sign up - stepdads, grandfathers and uncles are welcome, too.  

Email Mrs. Wheatley at MRWheatl@garlandisd.net after you have been approved through the District background check process with the date and hours you would like to serve.
