It just does not seem possible that we are at the last day of the 2009-2010 school year. It just seems like yesterday that I was writing a "Welcome Back" entry for my blog. I want to thank everyone for a great year in 09-10.
EISD has enjoyed many successes this year. We continue to see academic success with our students as evident by our TAKS scores, our SAT/ACT scores, our ITBS scores at the Primary, the way our art program dominated against other area art programs, and even more so by the amount of scholarships that our seniors received.
We continue to enjoy success in extracurricular activities. Our athletic teams made the playoffs in volleyball, football, and baseball. Our cross country teams qualified for regional, and our boys track team won the district championship. Our band always competes for a First Division anytime that they perform; and, our FFA organization and cheerleaders are quite simply the best in the area.
None of this could be accomplished without everyone working together. It takes staff members, parents, grandparents, other relatives and friends, and community members all working together to have this type of success. It also takes a school board that strives to make sure that our students have what they need in order to be successful.
While it is certainly enjoyable to reflect back on the 09-10 school year, it is also exciting to think what the 2010-2011 school year will be like. I can’t wait to see!
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
