Notes from the Principal

It has been a great school year! We are very proud of our staff and students and the progress they have made this school year. May is a very busy month as you can see by our calendar of events. This is our opportunity to reward our students for the hard work they have done over the school year. Please make sure you are aware of any class guidelines for the various reward activities.


We hope that you have a wonderful summer and we look forward to seeing everyone at our Back to School Fair in the Special Events Center on August 18.

Summer Reading Program

We encourage all students to participate in our Summer Reading Program. The summer reading program will be held in the Itasca ISD library on Monday through Thursday from 9-12pm from June 4-July 12. Speakers, activities and programs will be offered each week. Research shows that students need to read over the summer months to avoid decline in reading skills.
