A Message from Our Superintendent

Parents, Students, and Community,

Congratulations to the class of 2016!

On Friday, June 3, 2016, a packed gymnasium of cheering family and friends honored our 14 students in the Oakwood High School senior class for the last time as they walked across the stage to receive their diplomas. This senior class was very accomplished. 75% graduated on the distinguished plan, and there was over $120,000 awarded in scholarships. Many of the scholarships earned were competitive as our students competed against other students from much larger schools. Over half of our seniors have already acquired college credits while in high school ranging from 12-33 hours through the Oakwood Independent School District dual credit program that is provided by the district. We are proud of our seniors and wish them the best in their future endeavors.

Our staff is working hard preparing for a great year in 2016-2017. I encourage students to plan to take advantage of the many opportunities that we provide by participating in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. I ask for parents to get involved in their child's education by attending school activities and events. Also, be part of the school committees that we offer each year and the Parent/Teacher Organization (PTO). We want you to communicate with the teachers and staff and encourage students to make good decisions regarding their education. When we are working together we all accomplish so much more, and it ultimately promotes student success. If we can be of assistance in any way, please contact us at 903-545-2106 for elementary or 903-545-2140 for junior high and high school. You can also contact the administrative office at 903-545-2600.

Our summer hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m Have a safe and enjoyable summer!

Go, Panthers!
