The M Club fundraiser in Tarkington this weekend was AMAZING! Funds raised will help EVERY senior with college/career plans after graduation. The love in the arena for the students was inspiring. The generosity of our community took my breath away. Tarkington ISD not only has great friends in our board members, but also has friends in life-long residents devoted to our success. I learned from a board member in Grand Prairie that the way you spell LOVE is T-I-M-E. There was so much love in the arena as you gave your time, talents, and resources for our students! In action, I saw Longhorns for Life! Dr. Elna Davis Superintendent

Over the past 3 weeks Tarkington FFA students participated in the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo in many different events. Rebecca Chapa, Leanna May, and Makaila Stutts received a certificate to purchase a calf because they participated in the Calf Scramble during the Rodeo performance. They are pictured with their sponsors. Beth Lambert (5th place), Megan Lambert (6th Place) and Mia Shew (5th place) all participated in the Breeding Heifer show. Our Ag Mech team earned a 2nd Place ribbon in the show with their 3 point scissor lift. The team included Aaron King, Adam Jackson, Annabelle Clements and Conner Gilmore. Our Officer Team sold programs before the rodeo and earned over $1600 for the scholarship fund.

TISD Family, Friends, and Community, Please join us on Wednesday, March 23, 2022, at 4 PM in the THS Commons as we show our appreciation to one of our own, Dr. Marc Keith, as he retires after 40 years in education! Dr. Keith graduated from Tarkington High School in 1978, and spent some of his early years here as a teacher, coach, and administrator. As Providence would have it, he returned home in 2018 as our Superintendent and led our community through the turbulent times of a pandemic where his commitment to -- and understanding of -- our rural technology limitations, students' academic and social needs for classrooms, and our teachers' needs to teach safely, all helped to return our community back to the focus of "doing what's best for students," where we all agree it should always be! Dr. Keith's family will also be joining us for refreshments and fellowship. For those of you who may have memories to share, we've started a memory album and are compiling photos into a slideshow. Please scan and share them with us using the contact information below if you would like them added. Include names, dates, etc. If you have any photos, questions, or would like further information, please contact Renee Padgett at rpadgett@tarkingtonisd.net or LaLa Clopton at lclopton@tarkingtonisd.net We look forward to seeing you all there!
