Last Day of School

2011 June 3
by HISD Communications

Wow. What a year this has been! I wrote this letter highlighting some of our achievements because we have so much to celebrate. Right now, the students have all gone home, and our high schools are busy getting ready for graduation ceremonies this weekend.

In the Central Office, the work doesn’t really slow down during the summer—I’m sure a lot of you can relate. Even so, I’m looking forward to visiting family, playing golf, and reading. Today, second-graders at a dozen of our schools each received a free book thanks to our friends at Jack and Jill of America. Reading is one of the most important components of the foundation for education. I hope all our students will join me in reading this summer. Click here for information about the Millionaire Club Summer Reading program, which gives students an opportunity to earn prizes for reading five or more books.

I hope we all can take some time to recharge our batteries over the summer. I am excited about the upcoming school year, and important planning is already underway!
