Dear Parents and Seniors,

We want to celebrate our Seniors as much as possible, during these unusual times we are in. So, we have partnered with a sign company to help us show our love and support, for our seniors, in our community!

We have three (3) designs to pick from and your have the option of having your sign shipped in bulk, to save cost, or you can have your signs shipped directly to your home, including extra shipping costs.

Our pricing included a one-sided sign with wire stake - $1 extra for printing on second side of sign

$12 per sign – one sided – shipped in bulk

$27 per sign – shipped to you home (Shipping is included in this price.)

In order to have signs in a timely manner, you will have one-week to place your orders, for bulk shipping. No deadline for shipping to your home.

For those who order signs shipped in bulk, we will have a designated time and location for parents/students to pick up. Early in June.

Here is a link to the signs for ordering;

Thank you for your support of our Seniors! For all who order bulk shipping, we will contact you with pick up dates and times, once the order has been shipped.

A message to the Class of 2020 from the Austin ISD Police Department, including Crockett's very own SRO and alumni, Officer Covington

Crockett senior, Chantal, shares her thoughts on her senior year.

If it weren't for COVID-19, many high school seniors would be walking across a stage to receive a diploma this month. They’d also be attending prom and other events to celebrate the end of high school.

Instead, many seniors are having to reflect on their high school experiences alone and make different memories for some of the biggest milestones.

Read the article below, featuring four high school seniors, including Crockett's very own Chantal, sharing what it means to have the last semester of senior year shifted to at-home learning and away from friends.

Congratulations to our first Early College High School graduating cohort earning their ACC Associate's Degree in three years and our ACC Level 1 Construction Technology Students
