To get a firsthand look at how our students are being inspired to become future leaders, parents and community members are invited to Celebrate Texas Public Schools by participating in open house events and our Education Celebration, Monday, March 8.

“Texas Public Schools Week is a yearly celebration in which everyone – students, families and the community can participate together,” Jones said recently. “This celebration gives all of us an opportunity to highlight our students and their wonderful achievements. We hope parents and everyone interested will come visit our schools next week to see our students.”
