Parking Lot Drop Off and Pick-Up

Thank you to all the parents who are parking and then dropping off or picking up your child(ern). You have made a huge difference in moving the traffic through our school.

I do ask the parents parking under the trees and blocking the drive to please move to a parking spot. Also, those who continue to drop off in the drive on the west end of the parking lot are asked to please set a good example for your child(ern) by complying with our request to park and then drop off. Anyone who wishes to just drive through and drop off their child(ern) may use the designated drop-off lane in the main driveway.

Thank You!

Please Support our Honor Flight World War II Veterans - Repeated Announcement


By Rebecca Engle (8th grade)

The Tex Hill Student Council is gearing up for their second annual fundraiser in support of the Honor Flight Network through The Honor Flight San Antonio de Valero. The fundraiser will run October 11 through November 11 with the goal of raising the $1400, the cost of sending one soldier on a flight. The money collected will be used to sponsor a WWII Veteran. It will pay for the visit to Washington D.C. and the memorials dedicated to honor his/her service and sacrifice. All donations are accepted, from spare change offered by student to larger donations from parents, staff and the public. Any checks should be made payable to Tex Hill Middle School. The fundraiser will close with a Veterans Day Celebration on November 11 where the students will hold a dinner honoring the veterans working with the program and announce the name of the selected 2016 Honor Flight recipient. This is a not only great service opportunity; it is a unique learning experience. Students are able to meet with Veterans, listen to their stories and learn about their experiences as service members first hand. If you would like to support the program or learn more about how you can help, visit or email Mrs. Kickhoefer (Student Council Sponsor) at
