Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! I hope you had a nice summer and are ready for a great year of learning and fun.
We haven't made a lot of changes for the upcoming year, but I do want to highlight a few of them. First, we have made improvements to our overall district safety plan. Our new Safety Coordinator, Dr. William Stewart, has worked with our city and county emergency management officials to coordinate communication efforts when safety issues arise. He has also implemented new safety training measures for all staff members and will oversee the safety program implementation with students. Secondly, we have received the TACE grant again. Congratulations to Shanna Marshall and her TACE staff for securing over $1 million a year for after-school and summer school opportunities for students. Lastly, we have two new campus principals. Mr. Stephen Cooksey, former PJH Principal, is moving over to Palestine High School. And, Mr. Joey Mason will be leaving the high school to lead Palestine Junior High. We wish both of these gentlemen and their staff members the best.
Football season, volleyball, Cross Country, drill team, cheerleading, and band are here! Yes, it's that time of the year, and we are excited for what our students are going to be doing this fall. Come out and support these young men and women as they promote Palestine. You can find more information about schedules and ticket sales on our athletic web site.
Please take the opportunity to visit one of our outstanding campuses during the school year. And, don't forget to browse the campus web pages for information that you need. You can also get timely information from our district's Facebook page.
Have a great year, and Go Cats!
