Argyle ISD Campuses Honoring 9/11

Argyle ISD campuses will be honoring the victims and heroes of 9/11 with special tributes on Friday. We take time Friday all across the district to remember those who were lost and honor the first responders for their sacrifice.


  • Argyle High School students will wear red, white and blue, and special presentations will be made during U.S. History classes each period.

  • During Argyle Middle School Social Studies classes, students and teachers will have special tributes including the showing of The Man in the Red Bandana, a documentary film of a hero who saved several lives in the South Tower.


  • Hilltop Elementary, Argyle West Elementary and Argyle Intermediate students and staff will wear red, white and blue in remembrance and pay tribute during the daily announcements.

Grandparents Day Parade Coming Monday

Get ready Hilltop Elementary and Argyle Intermediate Grandparents! On Monday, Sept. 14 both campuses will be hosting Grandparent Parades on campus to celebrate in a different type format this year.

With current safety guidelines prohibiting visitors on campuses, both schools have provided a creative new way to make sure their grandparents are celebrated. Grandparents of both campuses will drive along a route around the campus with students ready to celebrate with them from the sidewalks! Make sure to visit the Hilltop Elementary and Argyle Intermediate websites for more information on the routes or contact the campuses for details.
