District Weekly Update 12/7/23

Welcome to Tarkington ISD’s weekly district update ~

December is packed with performances, festivals and family fun!

You won’t want to miss our Tarkington Elementary Glee Club performance at the Tarkington Community Library’s “A Very Prairie Christmas” this Saturday, Dec. 9, in the Tarkington Early Childhood Cafeteria and Gym. The event is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and our Glee Club will perform at 10:30 a.m. Get a free picture with Santa & Mrs. Claus, enjoy games, treats, goats in pajamas, a Christmas Market and more! That’s this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Bring the whole family to enjoy Dinner with Santa this Monday, Dec. 11. Sponsored by Project Graduation for the Class of 2024, the festivities start at 6 p.m. in the high school commons. Tickets are $8 each payable by cash or check and include a chicken spaghetti dinner, hot cocoa, prizes, candy and Christmas activities for a good cause!

And be sure to save the date for our Tarkington Ag-Science Winter Festival on Saturday, December 16. The fun starts at noon on the front lawn and parking lot of Tarkington Middle School. There will be games, treats, a petting corral and hayride, chili cook-off and more!

Just a reminder: There is no school for students and the district will be closed tomorrow, December 8.
