Defenders - Defining Excellence Everyday
November 27, 2022
Notes from our Principal
Hello Driscoll community,
I trust you had a very good week off with family and friends being able to rest and rejuvenate. I personally enjoyed some time away with my family and was able to rest up for the final three weeks of this semester. As we close out the semester, please be sure to be in attendance each day. There are important concepts being learned and reviewed in these final weeks of the semester.
Tomorrow, NEISD is starting their virtual after-hours homework help again. Below is a graphic with additional details about the available help. Be sure to reach out if help is needed. Tuesday, November 29 is an early release day with school out at 1:25pm. The buses run early on that day. Our Winter Dance will be held on December 9 from 4 - 6pm. Student tickets for the dance can be purchased using the online link included below. The dance is only open to Driscoll students who are in good standing behaviorally.
There are several other reminders and some new details to assist you with preparing for this next week. Please review the many details included below. If you have specific questions, please reach out so we can assist with those items. Please continue to stay safe.
