I hope you have had an exciting start to the new school year! I know you are already making an impact in students' lives!

Educator Spotlight!!

Congratulations to Mrs. Alyson Locke, 4th Grade Teacher at Hackberry Elementary! You are in the Educator Spotlight!

Mrs. Locke teaches Texas History to our 4th Grade students with enthusiasm and positivity! This week she jumped right in with the new Social Studies materials and had her students participating in hands-on activities and group discussions.

Thank you Mrs. Locke for your dedication to every student! Your hard work will certainly pay off!
