Miss Texas, Ilianna Guerra & Student Ambassadors

Principal's Message

It was great week! Busy, but absolutely great!

On Friday, we had two very specials guests. The first was Board of Trustee, Sam Saldivar Jr. who represented the Business & Industry AND Public Service high school endorsements. He addressed our 2nd grade students who did a wonderful job!

And our 2nd special guest was Miss Texas, Ilianna Guerra. We had only ONE day to prepare, but that didn't stop us. Thank you to everyone for quickly creating banners, signs, noisemakers, and with such a positive attitude. This was a fantastic opportunity for our students, and everyone stepped up despite the short notice. Thank you!

Finally, we ended with a delicious Birthday Luncheon! Thank you to our admin team who decorated the lounge and hosted lunch. Remember, the family that dines together, stays together!

Six weeks tests and grades are around the corner which usually brings stress levels a bit higher than usual. Remember to take time for yourselves, BREATHE, and know that you have a team here to support you through thick and thin….

Have a wonderful, blessed week!
