A Message from Dr. Toni Hicks
As we enter the holiday season, we want to celebrate the staff, parents and community who are coming together to support students.
These first weeks have been focused on listening and learning more about this wonderful community through meetings with district staff and community leaders including the Mayor, Police Chief, Chamber of Commerce, and Sun City Rotary Club.
As we go forward into the next semester, additional opportunities are being planned to hear from stakeholders:
- Monthly Coffee Chats with the Superintendent. These are open to the entire community. The first one is Wednesday, January 27 at 8:30 a.m. at the Social Grounds
- A townhall to address thoughts shared through the needs assessment survey
- Student Ambassador Meetings
- Staff Roundtables
- Additional campus visits
Jarrell ISD is committed to listening to you. Gathering your input is both important and purposeful; Together, we will use your feedback to chart the course for continued greatness.
Have a safe and happy holiday season!
Dr. Toni Hicks
