From Mrs. Lay

We are off to an amazing start! Warriors are already working hard and making us all proud. In August the Texas Education Agency released accountability ratings for the 2018-19 school year. Whiteside Elementary received an A rating for exemplary performance. WE ARE SO PROUD! Whiteside also earned 4 of the available 6 distinctions. You can find more information about school accountability ratings at https://txschools.gov. There are many upcoming events, find them all on our parent google calendar here. Please contact me if you have any questions at 219-7300.
