Oakwood ISD News

When it’s time to work, we work, and when it’s time to play, we play. But rest assured that there’s always something going on with our Panthers! Visit this page often to read the latest news.

Town Hall Meetings

There will be two town hall meetings for the community to learn more about the bond election that will be on Saturday, May 6, 2017.

Debate News

Congratulations to the OHS CX debate team of Dylan Rogers and Charles Malina. They won first place at district competition in January and competed at the UIL State CX debate competition at UT Austin during spring break. Although they did not advance to the finals, they won two of their four debate rounds, and we are so proud of them. This is both students' first time to compete in CX debate, and we have high hopes for them in the years to come.

Students of the Month

Each month the Oakwood ISD Site Based Decision Making Committee selects one student from each campus that has been nominated by his/her teacher for student of the month. These students are selected based on their academic performance, citizenship, good attitude, and for being a team player. These are all qualities that we aspire for our students. We invite the students the committee selects as students of the month, along with their parents, to the monthly board of trustees meeting where the board recognized them and gives them a certificate. In addition, their picture is taken with the school superintendent, and we display that picture in their campus hallway for the remainder of the 2016-2017 school year. The winners are listed below:

  • September - Elementary, Elena Salguero and JH/HS, Kaeley Bean
