This Week and Comptroller's Award

Although only a four day week, for our seniors, this is the most important week of the year. There are senior activities planned all through the next four days. However, the two most important activities occur on Wednesday and Saturday. On Wednesday, the seniors participate in the baccalaureate service at the First Baptist Church in Eustace. The service starts at 7:00 PM. There will be a reception to honor the seniors afterward in the Fellowship Hall.

On Saturday, May 31, the seniors will have their graduation ceremony. Graduation will be held in the E. L. Kirk Gymnasium and will start at 10:00 AM. Doors will open at 9:00 AM.

Thursday, the early childhood students will participate in their own graduation ceremony.

Friday, the kindergarten students will have their Right Choice picnic.

Comptroller’s Award

For the past several years, EISD has received the Gold Leadership Circle Award from the Texas Comptroller’s office for financial transparency. At the time, this was the highest level that could be attained. This year, the Comptroller introduced a Platinum Level that had even more challenging criteria. I am pleased to report that EISD was recently awarded The Leadership Circle Platinum Award by the Comptroller’s office. Out of a possible 22 points, EISD scored 21. If you have not visited the financial page on our website, I encourage you to take a few minutes and take a look at all the resources that are available.

I want to thank our business office personnel for producing the documents that go on our website: Carol Warren, business manager; Debra Meyners, payroll; Kara Weaver, accounts payable. I also want to thank our web designer, Michelle Cavazos. She is responsible for putting this information in an easy to access format on our webpage. Finally, I want to thank our school board for their leadership and direction: Gary Walsh, president; Michael Cates, vice-president; Ashley McKee, secretary; Cotton Walker, member; Sonny Hodge, member; Bobby Ashton, member; Steven Bell, member.

I hope everyone has a great week!
