District receives national award for farm-2-school
08/31/2016
Our district has won the prestigious "One In A Melon Award" from the United States Department of Agriculture for our "farm-to-school" program. This award is given to one school district per state every two years! Our Nutrition Services department has worked with our College and Career Readiness department to incorporate produce grown at the district's farm on 96th and Waller Road into student meals throughout the district. Over 18,000 pounds of produce was harvested in summer/fall of 2015, and this year’s harvest is on-pace to exceed that of last year! Furthermore, the addition of a 100 ft. hoop house, washing stations, and an on-site cold storage will allow for year-round growing and harvesting of fresh produce.

Now that we have completed the 2015-16 school year and have begun the transition to 2016-17, it is a good time to reflect on our many successes and examine the challenges ahead. We continue to see the escalating student academic achievement and increased graduation rates for which we have worked so hard. Despite the fact that our challenges are not diminishing, we are still making progress meeting the many and varied needs of our students. We continue to beat the odds. Our efforts are making a positive difference in the lives of our children and their families. The success we are having has everything to do with the vision of the School Board, the expertise of our district leadership, the commitment of our dedicated staff, the support of our parents and community, and the constant striving by our amazing students.
