Back-To-School Message from Superintendent Dr. Telena Wright
Dear Eagle Families,
As the 2022-2023 school year begins in Argyle ISD, I envision a very productive and exciting year for students and staff.
Each year brings new challenges and new adventures. All children come to school eager to learn, and educators in our district are committed to making sure that the learning environment allows them to continue to be enthusiastic seekers of knowledge. Teachers accept nothing less than the best from all students, and hold fast to their dreams of what students can become.
Teachers recognize that every student has unique characteristics, and that instruction must be differentiated to meet their needs. Our teachers are role models for students, both at and away from school.
We are excited to open the year with an enrollment of almost 5,000 students. Our student enrollment growth is projected to be about 10%. In June 2017, the district had 2,454 students, so you can see that the enrollment has doubled in the last five years. Signs of the enrollment growth are reflected by Argyle ISD moving to Class 5A starting this year.

That's My Teacher! Campuses Connect With Students at Meet The Teacher Events
This week students started getting ready for school with the Meet The Teacher events at the elementary campuses. These events were split up over two nights at each of the campuses to help with parking and limit the crowding for families. The district's three elementary campuses - Hilltop, West & South - are shifting to new grade configurations this year serving PreKindergarten through 5th grade students.
This event was a historic one for South Elementary as they opened their doors for the first Meet The Teacher for the new campus. South Elementary is located in Canyon Falls on Denton Creek Blvd and was part of the voter-approved 2017 bond.
Crossing Guards Needed at West Elementary!
Hours are 6:45 a.m. to 7:45 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Please contact Chris Daniel at email@example.com if interested.
Follow the Campuses on Facebook!
