Teacher appreciation week starts this Monday May 6th! We are excited to show our teachers how grateful we are for the hard work and invaluable service they provide to our students and families. While teachers don't expect anything from administration, students and parents, they always cherish a small surprise on Teacher Appreciation Day, or throughout the week. Join us in celebrating the teachers we love!



We are less than two months away from Senior Signing Day! We are excited to have our 8th to 12th grade students join us on Tues., May 21, for this momentous occasion, but to attend they must have a signed permission slip. We have sent a paper permission slip home with students this past Thursday May 2. Please sign and have your student turn in this form to the front office.


All paper permission slips are due on Monday, May 6!

When school cafeterias close for summer, Texas families can still access no-cost meals!

Children 18 and younger and enrolled students with disabilities up to age 21 in low-income areas can eat healthy meals funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture Summer Meal Programs. The Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) partners with food assistance organizations, schools, and other nonprofits to make these meals available at sites across Texas. TDA provides free promotional materials which can be ordered below. Promotional materials include bookmarks, parent info cards, door hangers, indoor and outdoor signage as well as downloadable digital resources.

Sites serving summer meals start opening around June 1. To find the nearest site, families have the following three options:

Dial 211 to speak to a live operator
Visit www.SummerFood.org for an interactive site locator map
Text FOOD to 304-304

*Please note the texting service will be available starting late May/early June.

In addition to finding a site, it is important for families to use these tools frequently to confirm dates and times and get more information about how meals will be served. Families are encouraged to call, text, or go online, and connect with meal sites from June 1-August 30 to access healthy meals for young Texans.
Please feel free to share this email and thanks for helping to increase access to this free federal nutrition program over the summer.
