Texas Tuesday: New Beginnings

Yesterday was the first day of classes for the 2015-2016 academic year at Archway Academy in Houston. Unlike most high schools, that first day ended with an old fashioned field day on the lawn of Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church, which hosts Archway on its campus. As I’ve written about both here and here, Archway is also unlike most high schools because it was “established in 2003 by concerned parents and adolescent addiction recovery experts who recognized the need for a school that was dedicated to supporting teens in recovery from drug and alcohol abuse or dependency.” Below is a picture of the student body in field day mode on the grass between the church and the Texas Medical Center directly across the street.
