What a wonderful time of the year!  The leaves are turning and falling to the ground, the temperature is cooling down, and it really makes it nice as we get ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

     We have had an outstanding first semester so far in the district.  Our first two 6 weeks student grades were excellent as we had more students receive passing scores than ever before!  Great job to our students, parents, and teachers.  Most of our campuses have had book fairs, and it is great to hear about our students reading at home now more than ever.

     A quick shout-out to our students for providing items for our local food banks and fundraising for Hurricane Harvey.  Students at Southside Elementary brought over 3,500 items to go directly to people in Palestine, and students throughout the district raised over $3,000 for hurricane relief efforts.  Also, our students and staff members brought canned and boxed goods for Thanksgiving Baskets delivered to families in our community.  It's really pleasing to see our students have a community service mindset!  

     In our extracurricular activities, our Team Tennis athletes won their second consecutive District Championship, and our Volleyball Team had their highest district finish in many years.  Our Girls' Cross County Team qualified for the Regional Meet again, and our Boys' Cross Country Team won both the District and Regional Meets. 

     Please make sure to search through our district web site for lots of useful information.  Also, feel free to call one of our campuses at anytime, and visit us on our District Facebook Page.  Finally, thanks to our Watch Dogs, our PTO, and our parent/community volunteers.  You provide lots of help to our campuses including inspiring our youngsters.

     Happy Thanksgiving to the Wildcat Nation!
