HC Alumni News
Houston Christian is happy to report that we have had no reports of COVID-19 on campus to date! To stay that way, our students are staying masked and maintaining safe distances! It has been great to see groups collaborating in small pods of four and our students are meeting new people through the modified and varying lunch schedules. The Mustang Corral and MetroNational Gym are abuzz each day with the normal student activity and chatter, but it is a bit muffled as everyone who isn’t actively eating must wear their mask.
After running a “Mode B” schedule for a month, with only 50% of our students on campus at a time, we welcomed all of our students back to campus on September 17! We have reverted back to the normal block scheduling for our teachers and students, which they all greatly appreciate. 
While normal, back-to-school events can’t happen right now, we are finding creative ways to continue to build community. Our senior moms wanted to show their love and support for our new senior class by creating "Welcome Back" care packages for the Class of 2021 (pictured above). Nothing says community like an unexpected can of Silly String! We also held a virtual Grandparents Day and invited alumni grandparents as well! Please check with your grandparents to see if they watched it!
To build community with parents, Dr. Livingston hosted his annual Bow Tie Breakfasts for new families - completely virtually. He fittingly renamed the meetings "Bow Tie Browser.” He shared HC's history, strategic plan, and a bit about what the future holds for the school with many of our new families. 
To build our alumni community - we celebrated our first annual HC Alumni Day and launched our new, interactive alumni platform, HC Connects! With our virtual rollout, we are glad to report that we have over 70 alumni signed on already! From job and internship opportunities (which can be uploaded & published by alumni) to planning reunions and re-connecting with classmates, HC Connects offers our alumni a new way to engage with the school, our students and each other virtually!

Homecoming 2020 - October 23, 2020
With our Homecoming game quickly approaching - several alums have asked: "Will we have a Alumni Round-Up on campus?"

It is with a heavy heart that we have to report that we will be unable to host any alumni at our Homecoming Game on Friday, October 23.

HOWEVER - Feel free to reach out to your class agents listed on the website and feel free to plan your off-campus class reunions this year!
Virtual Open House!
Our Admissions team is doing great work to foster prospective students' interest in HC through virtual open houses and "behind the scenes" videos that are shared each week on Facebook!

HC will be hosting its first ever Virtual Open House on Zoom (October 14 & November 30)
from 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM.

HC Legacy!
In other alumni news, Houston Christian welcomed our FIRST Houston Christian legacy student to the Class of 2024! 
We have had many Northwest Academy legacy students, including one this year, but this is our first HC legacy student! As we send out HC Mustang onesies, we find ourselves looking forward to the future “herd” of legacy Mustangs – and it all started this year!
