Juniors and Sophmores took the PSAT test this past Wednesday. This test provides preparation for the SAT test which many students take for college entrance. Juniors who score well on this test can qualify as Commended Scholars, National Merit Scholarship Semi-finalist and Finalists. Any one of these above recognitions usually qualifies students for scholarships in colleges and universities.
This past week Jerry Burkhart, Gerald McKee, Travis Winn and I attended Emergency Operations Plan/Rapid Responder training at the Region XV Service Center in San Angelo. This past summer Jerry Burkhart and Gerald McKee attended 3 days of training in Emergency Operations Planning. Teachers were briefed on responding to district emergencies.
The district now has an updated Emergency Operations Plan to enable responses to various emergencies. Part of this plan requires all visitors to sign-in at the principal’s office prior to any classroom visits. The faculty and staff strive to ensure the safety of all of our students.
It’s great to see our community supporting students in their efforts to achieve. We have a great community, students, teachers and staff. It takes everyone working together to achieve success. Thanks for all you do!
Community involvement is the key to success!
