Texas Public Schools Week will be celebrated across the state next week, March 9-13, 2009. This year’s theme for the weeklong observance is: Growing Graduates: Texas Public Schools Plant Seeds for Success.

Beeville Independent School District teachers plant seeds of success from pre-K to high school each and every day. “Our schools are thriving and producing the greatest resources in the state of Texas – successful students,” said Nancy Jones, assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction.

Beeville ISD schools will be open next week to any parents and other interested residents.

On Monday evening, March 9, from 6:30 to 8, BISD will pull out all the stops to showpiece a variety of school and community programs in the annual Education Celebration, Jones said. The various participants will set up their displays and booths in Veterans Memorial Stadium.

Three stages will be set up for the entertainment during the evening. Entertainment will be presented by groups from BISD campuses.

In addition to booths by the various campuses and school programs, there also will be representatives from several universities and colleges, March of Dimes, Relay for Life, Housing Authority, Coastal Plains MHMR, OATH Open Arms Thankful Heart, Adult Literacy, Bee County Tax Office, Amerigroup, Community Action CHIPS, Driscoll Children’s Health Plan, Angel Bright Home Health, Christus Spohn Hospital, TDCJ-Region IV, U.S. Navy, Texas Dept. of State Health, Beeville Public Library, BCAA Headstart, Early College High School and many others.

Food items will be on sale by various groups raising money for their organizations. Some of the treats on the menu include hamburgers, nachos, pizza, pickles, Frito pies, sausage wraps, tamales, candy, baked goods and drinks.

“Texas Public Schools Week is a yearly celebration in which everyone – students, families and the community can participate together,” Jones said. “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.”

For information on next week’s campus activities please contact your child’s school or BISD website www.beevilleisd.net.

“We especially encourage the community to join us at the Education Celebration Monday night,” Jones said. “If inclement weather, we will have Education Celebration Thursday, March 12. For the safety of our children and parents skateboarding, bicycles and footballs will not be allowed during Education Celebration.”
