Have you heard about the CISD Community Tailgate this Friday?

The Community Tailgate will be this Friday night before our Cowboys football game against Jesuit. This is a "come when you can" event between 5:30 - 7:00 pm and a great time to meet and hang out with other district and community members.

Please join us and enjoy a Hard Eight bbq sandwich meal for $5 (while supplies last) or "Bring your own." Wear your Hurricane Harvey shirt if you purchased one.
