NEISD celebrates Texas Public Schools in march


A clip of MacArthur High School's video about why it is worth celebrating Texas public schools.

North East ISD is celebrating the accomplishments its students make each and every day during Texas Public Schools Week, March 3-7, and throughout the month of March, with the campaign to Celebrate Texas Public Schools.

Each day NEISD students acquire new skills as they Imagine, Explore and Discover new information, engaging their minds and bodies, building their educational foundations and futures. The efforts students make will lead them to this year’s theme, “Leave Your Mark.” NEISD wants every student to leave their mark well after graduating from its schools.

Students are proud of their work and accomplishments and wish to share their discoveries with the entire educational community.

"Public schools in North East and throughout the state of Texas are committed to laying the foundation for a solid education for each of our students," said Dr. Brian G. Gottardy, superintendent of schools. "Join us, as we share our map for a great education. We invite you to Imagine, Explore, Discover our schools, during school events as we Celebrate Texas Public Schools."

North East schools celebrate Texas Public School Week in a variety of ways. Northwood Elementary School will host parent engaging activities throughout the week, including a Poetry Café, Reading Restaurant and a Math Café. Thousand Oaks Elementary School has planned special activities that include parents reading Dr. Seuss stories with their child, reciting poetry, and playing math games. Ed White Middle School has combined Texas Public Schools Week and Teen Tech Week by launching a twitter campaign. Students will be leaving their mark in the world of tech through twitter title sharing. Students will be tweeting using the hashtags, #TitleTalk and #EdWhiteSA to connect with people throughout the globe.

Texas Public Schools Week was established in 1950 by the Masonic Lodges of Texas to recognize contributions made by the state's free system of education. Each year, the event has grown and it continues to be a meaningful way to showcase the many educational opportunities given to more than four million students attending Texas Public Schools.

With all the great things happening in NEISD schools every day, Celebrate Texas Public Schools has become a year-round endeavor. As part of that celebration, for the second year in a row, the Texas School Public Relations Association (TSPRA) hosted a statewide video contest. Sponsored by Randolph Brooks Federal Credit Union, schools were asked to explain what’s worth celebrating in their schools in a 1 minute video.
