This month has truly been a highlight of our community and business partnerships that support our students. The following are just a handful of the many, many examples of collaboration that is ongoing with our partners throughout Temple:

  • 8th Grade Career Days with PDI, McLane, PFG, BSWH, Temple Chamber, Workforce, WCG, Temple F&R, and more

  • Mentoring Youth and Exposure to Medicine Program with TAMU

  • Support from Senator Buckingham and Representative Shine for technology education programs as highlighted by KP students at the Capitol this week.

  • Working with the Economic Development Corporation and City on marketing efforts

  • Engine donations to CTE from Johnson Bros. and Ford Motor Company

  • Temple Daily Telegram and KCEN on stories that inform our community of real time events

  • NAACP on organized MLK March

  • All the community members involved with our Wildcat Mentor program

  • Temple College on future CTE dual credit opportunities

  • Arts in Education performances for elementary students provided through the Cultural Activities Center

  • Wildcat Dash was supported and attended by multiple community members and businesses

  • Bell County Master Gardeners helping our PK students tend their garden

...and the list goes on and on. This community is remarkable in how it rallies behind our students to provide them with every opportunity possible to connect learning beyond the classroom. The best part is that we are just getting started and are expanding our partnerships every day. The momentum is infectious!

Below is an infographic that provides an overview of Temple ISD. This graphic visually summarizes the story of the incredible things that are happening in our schools. The commitment to inspire, motivate and empower students to reach their maximum potential is real and it is happening each and every day!
