Aristoi's 25 Year Celebration Dinner
Aristoi Classical Academy's annual fundraiser is a few short months away and we invite you to join us. This year, as we celebrate 25 Years Cultivating Wisdom and Virtue, we also honor Superintendent, Brenda Davidson. Mrs. Davidson has been at the heart of it all, providing 16 years of guidance for Aristoi as a school and wisdom to staff and students.

Please help us honor this courageous pioneer and stalwart leader at the Norris Center on April 8th. For more information, please go to aristoiclassical.org/support/.
Griffin Spotlights
Being on the Light Team
“Great schools are built by great people, great families, and great teachers. And, Aristoi is outstanding because of the people.” That was the beginning of the conversation with David and April Light, an Aristoi Cypress family, who have been icons at the school since the doors opened in August of 2020. April continues, “The awesome curriculum is a bonus.”

Researching schools and educational options was not always on the Light’s agenda. David and April attended good Texas public schools themselves. As the Light children got older, “classical education” and “public charter school” became commonplace in their daily conversation, especially when the Aristoi signs went up at Aristoi Cypress’ Perry Road location.

Aristoi colleagues awarded Advocacy Leadership Institute Fellowships
If you have been around Aristoi’s Katy campuses for any length of time, you are certain to have seen the likes of two of its charming teachers. Mr. Joseph Lockett has strolled the grounds of the Upper School for six years, spouting Latin phrases in Roman attire and headdresses during carpool. Dr. Christi Hicks started her Aristoi journey at Aristoi’s Elementary Katy campus, working initially with the 1st grade scholars. She now is at the Upper School and works with students as a dyslexia and reading specialist.

Both of these teachers are much beloved by students and colleagues alike. Both are stepping out and becoming charter school advocates, promoting Aristoi, its mission and vision, as well as boosting charter school awareness.

Once again Aristoi Classical Academy was well represented at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo's School Art Program. Our high school students garnered three awards, including Best of Show!

Congratulations to art teacher, Mrs. Laich, Gracie A. (Best of Show), Kadence P. (Gold Medalist), and Josh A. (Gold Medalist). Well done, Griffins!
