Postma Elementary’s main goal is to provide all students with a positive and challenging learning environment which empowers them to become responsible and productive citizens of the world.
Working as a partnership, the students, staff, parents and community, commit themselves to developing the social, emotional, academic and physical well-being of all children. By developing critical thinking skills, communicated through literacy, fine arts, mathematics, technology and the sciences, the school is responsive to changes in the community and the world.

Elementary #44 was named for Joan Postma, who spent 24 of her 29 years in education working for CFISD prior to her retirement in June 2002. Her tenure with the district started at Bleyl Middle School, where she taught mathematics and computer literacy for 10 years, as well as serving as team leader before being promoted to a district level position, technical assistant for administrative and instructional microcomputer services. Because of her leadership and expertise, she was later promoted to serve the district as the director of technology support services. She and her husband, Peter, have two children, Perri and Robert both Cy-Fair High School graduates. Three of the Postmas’ four grandchildren are school-age and attend CFISD elementaries.
The Postma PTO meets on a regular basis. The organization funds cultural arts activities and field trips, organizes volunteers, sponsors various student events, and conducts fund-raisers, which have provided technology, landscaping, books, and playground equipment.
