Dear Thrall Community,
The theme for Thrall ISD this year is “Student-Focused Schools and Future-Ready Students” Our focus this year at all levels (students, teachers, administrators, board members, and parents) is to display outstanding leadership, promote communication, and strive to have tremendous academic success as we prepare our leaders for their future. We will be focusing on the 3-R's as well, they are: Rigor (In the classroom), Relevance (How what we learn relates to life), and Relationships (Building rapport with our future leaders).
We have so many opportunities for you this year as we have set our goals high, as our high expectations will lead to tremendous academic and athletic success. There will be a huge College Readiness initiative in place for our district this year. Whether you choose to be a part of a strong UIL Academic program or whether you compete in any of the Extra-curricular activities, you will be a part of a competitive school district! Our student numbers are up 6% at this time (almost 40 students) and our staff continue working diligently in the educational process. In September, the Thrall ISD Board approved covering 6-hours of Dual Credit costs for each current year Junior and Senior student who meets college/dual credit requirements.
There are 2 Outstanding Projects taking place at this time; the forming of our new Thrall Community Education Foundation and the Master Facility Planning Committee is preparing for future needs of our district. Both committees meet monthly and reports are shared during the monthly Thrall ISD Board meetings. To check out more about the new foundation, log on to Foundation Innovation (our consultant) at www.foundationinnovation.com
and discover more about the process for forming a foundation.
The Student Handbooks will be posted on-line and all parents will need to access this information via the internet. Hard copies of the handbook will not be sent home unless you request a copy.
We Can, We Will, All Together!
Superintendent of Schools, Thrall ISD
