Ott's Outlook

October 2018

I have been to every campus and in many classrooms. I want you to know how proud I am of Temple ISD. Our staff and students are working very hard. I also want you to know how proud I am of Texas Public Schools. I encourage you to watch the video below. It sends an important message; and one that captures the essence of Temple ISD.

We had our annual Wildcat Mentor kick-off event this week and it is always amazing to see the impact that our mentors and students have on each other over time. I would like to thank our 130+ business and community leaders for agreeing to give up their time to mentor a Temple ISD child. This speaks volumes about our community!
