District Weekly Update 11/9/23

Welcome to Tarkington ISD’s weekly district update ~

The next meeting of the Tarkington ISD Board of Trustees is this Monday, Nov. 13. School board meetings are held in the administration office boardroom on the third Monday of each month unless otherwise posted. Agendas are posted at least 72 hours in advance and may be viewed on the district website at tarkingtonisd.net > Menu > Our District > School Board.

All TISD campuses will participate in two special observances next week, Nov. 13-16. The first is Generation Texas Week. This is a special time to motivate students to pursue higher education and training after graduating high school. The second is Bully Awareness Week. Each campus has planned activities to help students learn ways to build friendships, understand universal rules and expectations, and provide tools they can use to prevent or respond to bullying. Dress up theme days will be as follows:

Monday - "Your Future is Bright" - Wear Neon Colors

Tuesday - "Go Wild for Education" - Wear Camo or Animal Print

Wednesday - Students in grades 6 through 12 will have "College Spirit Day" -  Wear College, Trade, or Military Shirt; students in grades PreK through 5 will wear orange shirts in honor of Unity Day for Bully Awareness Week

Thursday - "Hats Off for College" - Wear a Hat

Just a reminder: There is no school for students tomorrow, Nov. 10, but it will be a professional development/work day for staff. Fridays off for students will go through the end of the first semester and then pick back up the last week in January. The 2023-24 Academic Calendar is located on our website at tarkingtonisd.net.
