A Message from Our Superintendent

Parents, Students, and Community,

Welcome back Panthers! We are looking forward to a great school year in 2016-2017. On August 22, 2016, we welcomed 188 students from three years old to 12th grade. As our students pass through our halls, we want them to be proud of our past accomplishments and to be prepared when they graduate to face challenges of the 21st century that lie ahead.

We have added several new members to our teaching staff. At the elementary campus, we have added Mrs. Rene Bean for elementary/JH science and Miss Heather Hassler in PreK. The JH/HS has added Miss Jennifer Fardon for PE/health, Mrs. Cathy Vincent for HS math, Miss Savanna Childress for special programs/ELA, and Mrs. Qwa Mudd for JH/HS ELA. Our new support staff is Mr. Carl Dorsey, all level aide. All of our new staff members look forward to getting to know your children and helping them be successful.

The state accountability results have been released for the 2015-2016 by the Texas Education Agency and we are proud to announce that Oakwood Elementary, JH/HS, and the district all "met the required standard." In addition, our elementary was awarded five stars of distinction for distinguished achievement. The elementary was recognized in the following areas:

  • Academic Achievement in the reading/ELA
  • Academic Achievement in math
  • Top 25 percent in closing performance gaps
  • Top 25 percent in student performance and post secondary readiness

The JH/HS was recognized in the following areas

  • Academic achievement in reading/ELA
  • Academic achievement in math
  • Academic achievement in social studies

The last three years, our schools have received 19 gold stars of distinction for distinguished achievement. This year we received eight gold stars, which is the most we have received in a school year. We congratulate our students and staff for their hard work.

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 extra-curricular activities. I ask 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 the staff and encourage students to make good decisions regarding their education. When we are working together, we all accomplish more, and it ultimately leads to student success. If we can be of assistance in any way, please contact us at (903) 545.2106 at the elementary or (903) 545.2140 at the JH/HS. You can also contact the administration office at (903) 545.2600.

Go, Panthers!
