It’s hard to believe that we are already in the month of June. It is even harder to believe that today is the last day of the 2014-2015 school year! Our students, from PK to seniors, have enjoyed many successes this year. These successes are not random, but a culmination of hard work and dedication by students, staff members, parents, and community supporters. It absolutely takes everyone working together to ensure the success of our students.
Special recognition goes out to the following people
School Board – The members of the EISD School Board volunteer to spend hours looking after the welfare of our students and our district. Our Board members include: Gary Walsh, President; Ashley McKee, Vice President; Bobby Ashton, Secretary; Cotton Walker, Member; Sonny Hodge, Member; Steven Bell, Member; and, Jimmy Kirkhart, Member.
Staff Members – All of our staff members work to provide our students with a world-class education. It takes everyone from bus drivers, cafeteria workers, custodians, maintenance workers, technology support, aides and office workers, counselors, speech therapists, visual specialists, diagnosticians, administrators, and teachers all working together to make EISD the best it can be.
Parents and Family Members – From getting your children to early morning practices (or picking your children up late at night after a long trip), to reading with your children, to helping your students prepare for a big test, parents and other family members put in countless hours helping their children get the best education possible. We could not do it without you!
Community Members – We are blessed with overwhelming community support for our district. This is shown in many ways – the FFA Auction, scholarships, support at athletic events, and donations of time, money, and materials – are just a few.
As I look back on the 2014-2015 school year, I thank everyone who had a part in making this a great year. I look forward to continued success in the 2015-2016 school year.
I hope everyone has a great summer!
