TISD Announces Activities for Texas Public Schools Week March 3 - 7
Texarkana, TX – Texarkana Independent School District will celebrate Texas Public Schools Week from March 3 - 7.
Texas Public Schools Week is designed to get parents and communities involved with their local public schools. Behind every successful student is a crowd of supporters – parents, families, teachers, community leaders and business owners – offering him or her encouragement to succeed and accomplish educational goals. Today’s students will one day determine the direction of our communities, our state and our nation. A strong and successful public education system is a priority for everyone.
The Masonic Lodges of Texas established Texas Public Schools Week in the 1950s to recognize the contributions made by the state’s free system of education. The Texas School Public Relations Association has promoted Texas Public Schools Week for more than 20 years. The week-long celebration offers a meaningful way to showcase the many educational opportunities given to more than four million students attending Texas Public Schools.
Activities scheduled for TISD during Texas Public Schools Week include:
Community Breakfast on Tuesday, March 4 from 7:00 – 8:00 a.m. in the Dan Haskins Student Center at Texas High School. Breakfast will feature a District update presented by Paul Norton, Superintendent, and Hall of Fame induction for Nancy Tullos who served as a Teacher and Cheer Sponsor from 1969 – 1978 and 1989 - 2010. Reservations are required for this event and can be made by calling 903.794.3651 ext. 1013.
