A Weekly Newsletter From The Connally Cadets

Week of 9/18 - 9/22

Superintendent's Update

Greetings, Cadet Nation!

Our Connally Primary School students were greeted with a nice surprise this morning. Every classroom had new student and teacher desks installed over the weekend! The new desks and tables will allow for more collaboration in the classroom and additional classroom configurations. You too can see the new furniture tomorrow night! The CPS campus will host a Family Literacy Night from 5:30 to 7:00. While you are there, make sure you stop by the book fair in the library.

More than just the temperatures are heating up in Connally ISD, as next week is homecoming. Homecoming week consists of a kickoff dance where the homecoming court is announced, spirit dress-up days, the community parade, alumni returning for the big game, and the crowning of our homecoming king and queen at halftime. You can refer to the district calendar for spirit dress-up days scheduled for next week. The community parade is scheduled for Wednesday, September 27th, at 5:00. If you have a group or organization that would like to participate in the parade, please contact Ms. Kassidy Munson at She can assist you in getting registered to be a parade participant. You can also still purchase reserved seat tickets for the homecoming football game. Please contact Mrs. Dorothy Madison in the administration office to purchase reserved tickets.

On Saturday, September 30th, the Connally High School marching band will compete in their first marching competition of the season. The competition will take place in Madisonville, Texas. Suppose you cannot attend the competition in Madisonville. In that case, you can get a preview of their show before or after the homecoming football game on September 29th. We will keep you posted once the performance time is cleared and approved. The band will not present their competition show at halftime to ensure there is sufficient time to introduce the homecoming court, and the crowning ceremony at halftime can be given to the homecoming court.

Tonight at 6:30 is the September regularly scheduled school board meeting. You can view the full meeting agenda by visiting the Connally ISD website. Click on the Menu at the top, under the About Us column, and go to the Board of Trustees link. There, you will find the link to Boardbook Current Notices. That will take you to the list of notices and agendas. You will see the meeting date, time, and location. Under the details column at the right, you can visit the agenda link to view the full agenda for the meeting.

Have a great week!
