Dear Parents,
On February 8, 2019 we will be celebrating prominent African Americans in history with our annual Black History Parade. We invite all parents to join us at 8:30 am in the school parking lot to enjoy the parade and hard work of the students and teachers. The parade will begin inside the building, coming outside and around the front of the school, and conclude back inside the building.
Please note, parents will not be allowed in campus.
 
We look forward to seeing you for this event.

Please review our school report card via TEA.

Texas Education Agency Updates

The 2017–18 School Report Cards (SRC) are now available on the Texas Education Agency’s website athttp://tea.texas.gov/perfreport/src/index.html. The purpose of the SRC is to inform parents and guardians about a campus’s individual characteristics and its academic performance.

For those who would like greater detail about the information in the SRC, the glossary that accompanies the 2017–18 Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR) is a useful resource. It contains definitions and methodologies for all the information included in the SRC. The data in the SRC is a subset of that published in the TAPR.
