It is definitely springtime in Palestine, Texas. The weather is awesome; the dogwoods are blooming; and, for an old baseball guy – the smell of freshly mowed grass brings back thoughts of spring training.
Speaking of activities, this is no doubt the busiest time of the year across the district. From UIL academic competitions to an award-winning One Act Play to choir and band competitions, our students continue to excel at every level. Our baseball and softball teams are deep into district play. Our track teams are preparing for the district meet as are our golf and tennis teams. And, our boys’ and girls’ soccer teams are both headed back to the UIL state playoffs. What an exciting time of the year in Palestine!
On the academic front, our students have worked very hard over the last 100+ days of school, and there is no doubt they are prepared for the upcoming STAAR tests. With excellent teaching, strong student and parent commitment to learning, and the assistance of our after-school (TACE) program, our students continue to reach their academic goals every day.
Our College and Career Readiness Program continues to shine and to prepare students for life after high school. This year’s senior class will complete over 2,000 hours of college credit and earn over 200 career certifications. Our Skills USA and FFA students also continue preparing themselves for career fields, lifelong leadership opportunities, and showcasing their abilities throughout our community and across the state of Texas.
I encourage you to check out our school calendar on the front of our website for many of our activities. Also, check us out on Facebook for other PISD information. Have a great spring, and Go Cats!
PS – Congrats to boys’ and girls’ playoff basketball teams!
