Herndon Happenings

We love our HEROES!

Dear Herndon Families,

We've had an awesome start to our school year! Students are quickly getting into their new routines and have done an outstanding job as new 5th and 6th grade Herndon HEROES. Thank you for being an educational partner with your child's teachers. Together, we can do great things.

Herndon staff members believe that educating a student involves the whole child, including character building. Our hope is that every child who leaves our campus will be role models for all to follow. Every morning our campus recites the Herndon Honor Code. Teachers incorporate lessons to educate students what each word means in the acronym "HEROES"...to be Honest, Encouraging, Respectful, Optimistic, Excellent, and Successful. Your children are on their way to a great year in Royse City ISD....the BEST school district in Texas!

Have a relaxing weekend,

Shanna Brown, Principal
