A Message from Our Superintendent
Parents, Students, and Community,
Welcome back to Oakwood ISD, home of the fighting panthers. The school year is off to a smooth start, and we look forward to a great and exciting year in 2014-2015.
The Oakwood community is blessed to have good students that not only excel in the area of athletics but in the classroom as well. Through our college tuition program we have several students who will graduate with college credits obtained while still in high school. This will be a great asset to parents because of the high cost of sending our children to college. It aids the students as they are ready for college work and can work part-time or take a smaller class load because of the college hours they have already successfully completed.
Our district strives to help our students be "well-rounded" and because of our small size they can be involved in many activities: athletics, agriculture, career and technology, civic as well as many UIL academic events. Our football and basketball teams advanced several rounds in the state playoffs. The high school science team were District Champions at the UIL academic meet. Many of our FFA students had success with their show animals, winning or placing in several shows across the state. We even had three students catch calves at the Houston fair and rodeo. Through Rotary, our students get involved in civic activities as well.
Of course, we are proud of our teachers and staff. They are highly trained professionals, who have a passion and love for children and want to help them reach their potential.
We know that by working together as a team (students,parents and teachers), we can accomplish our goals and are ready to face the challenges that lie ahead.
J. Thomason, Superintendent
