A new school year and the path to greatness

2013 August 22

Next week, our students will begin a brand new school year, and we’ve got a lot to be excited about.

Students at Dogan and Atherton elementary schools will be returning to brand new facilities on Monday thanks to the 2007 bond, and those attending Sherman Elementary School will be moving into a new one by the end of September.

At the secondary level, students now have an exciting new option to consider—the first-of-its-kind Energy Institute High School, and at 11 high schools across the district, they will be receiving laptops through HISD’s ambitious PowerUp initiative. We’ll also learn later this year if HISD has been selected as the 2013 winner of the Broad Prize, which brings with it quite a bit of money in college scholarships.

Our faculty and staff members have been preparing all summer for the new school year, and I can’t wait to see where this one will take us. I wish everyone on Team HISD success as we begin the next leg of our journey together, on the path to becoming great all over.
