Oct. 26, 2023—Representatives from Houston Home Team Realty visited the staff at Sampson Elementary School on Oct. 16 to officially announce their Adopt-a-School partnership with the campus.

CFISD’s Adopt-a-School program pairs schools with community organizations and business partners to utilize resources of the community to strengthen and enrich the quality of education for students.

James Rowlett, Houston Home Team Realty team leader, is not new to helping CFISD schools. His team adopted Black Elementary School earlier this year, but wanted to expand to Sampson to help more in the community.

“We just wanted to come up with a personal way of giving back to the community and what better way than supporting the elementary schools in CFISD,” Rowlett said. “My team loves to help out the teachers with a monthly $100 gift card raffle, as we know it can be tough on a budget to provide supplies for the kids in their classroom. We always love to do donuts for them on in-service says, so we can catch up, making their mornings a little more fun and show them that we appreciate what they do for the kids in our community.”

Heather Motzny, Sampson principal, expressed her gratitude to Rowlett and his team for committing to help support the campus.

“We are so excited to be formally adopted by the Houston Home Team,” Motzny said. “The Houston Home Team has been so generous with their appreciation of the Sampson staff, and we look forward to their continued support.”
