To all the Teachers
"I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks." ~ William Shakespeare
What an awesome year! Teachers, thank you so much for taking your classes towards achievements and successes. Our teachers have a special knack for keeping the kids motivated and excited about learning new things. Thanks again for a fun school year with plenty of terrific exciting events. It is an educational adventure every day! Many good wishes are sent your way to finish out the year and thank you for all that you do to make the students successful.

Whitharral 2019-2020 Transfer Information Grades k-12
Looking for a community-based atmosphere, differentiated learning, small teacher to student ratio, and a place that feels like home? Then Whitharral ISD is the place for you!! Call 806-299-1135 x 201 or email Principal Nick McCollister at firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information or a tour of the school.
Parents of children wishing to attend Whitharral ISD for the first time will need to come to the principal’s office and complete the required papers. Due to applicable State and Federal guidelines, application for transfer does not guarantee admittance into Whitharral ISD.
Parents of children (who reside outside of the Whitharral School District and currently attend Whitharral ISD as a transfer student) should receive required transfer papers from the superintendent’s office by mail or from your child’s teacher. Transfer papers need to be completed and returned by Friday, May 10, 2019. If your child is currently a transfer student and you did not receive transfer papers in the mail for your child/children, please contact the front office. Thank you for letting us teach your child/children!! Each student here plays a crucial role in making Whitharral ISD an exceptional place.

8th and 9th Graders and Dual Credit Information
UPDATE: Scholarships have been added to the school's web page. Click Here to be taken to the page!
I need to meet with all current 8th and 9th graders' parents by the end of the year. This meeting will give us a plan for the next few years of classes. It is a very short meeting! Please email or come by to set up a meeting.
Also, I need to meet with all current 9th, 10th, and 11th-grade students and parents interested in Dual Credit. If you are interested in taking Dual Credit classes you will need to fill out the Dual Credit information so we have each student enrolled before school is out. The current 9th graders will need to have taken and passed the reading and writing portions of the TSI before they can register for most Dual Credit classes. I will be pulling those students before school is out to take the TSI test. To take College Algebra the Math TSI has to be passed.
