The Pride of Texline ISD!
A Note from Mr. Johnson...
You know the old saying "time flies when you're having fun", well that kind of sums up our first cycle this school year which ended Friday. The staff and students attitudes this school year have been amazing thus far. Our student enrollment as of Friday was 181 students and our average daily attendance was 98%. Both of those numbers are exceptional for Texline ISD.
We had our first community service day on Friday, September 30th. I can't tell you how proud I am of our students and staff. It is unbelievable the amount of work that they accomplished in our four hours of school Friday morning. One of our goals this year is to give back to the community as much as we can!
Mr. Wheeler had four students show heifers at the Tri-State Fair. Rhett Heimann had two class winners and a division champion; Nataleigh Valles had two class winners and a Reserve Breed; Wyatt Heimann had a class winner, second place and division champion and Morgan Luther had two class winners and a reserve division champion. Mr. Wheeler is also buying rabbits and pigs for this upcoming show season. It looks like we will have 19 students showing rabbits and 8 students showing pigs. Also, Rhett and Morgan were awarded certificates for the purchase of a Braunvieh Heifer in the Texas Junior Braunvieh Breeders Incentive Program. To qualify, they had to go through an application process that included writing an essay and a personal interview. They will be showing their heifers at various shows throughout the state promoting the Braunvieh Breed. We also took 28 students to the District FFA Meeting at Canyon High School on September 6th and eight students to the Greenhand Camp at the Nance Ranch on the 13th. September was a big month for our FFA program.
Our Student Congress team went to Morton High School and competed on September 24th. Kali Dennis, our only returning member of the team, advanced to the semifinals. Other members attending the seminar were Austin Womble, Alexia Fernandez, Marissa Espino, Astrid Torres, Aspen Claycomb, Charles Deason and Kenzie Dennis.
Mr. Jones and I are members of the ACE committee. I'm sure you have seen in the news that Louise & Gene Rahll of Dalhart have generously donated 4 million dollars to build a new Frank Phillips Campus at Dalhart. That donation hinges on the taxpayers of Dallam and Hartley counties passing a 5 cent M&O tax in November. This semester we have 16 students taking at-least one dual credit course through FPC and most are taking two or more. This new campus would be a huge benefit not only to our school but to our Texline community as well. If you have any questions at all, please contact Mr. Jones or I and we would gladly answer your questions.
Mrs. Riley took our 3rd graders to Clayton for Farm Safety Day. It was a beautiful day and the kids had great time learning about farm safety.
Our Home Economics classes have been busy cooking, sewing and ironing. They cooked supper for our school board meeting on the 19th. The menu included Flaming Hot Cheetos chicken, Ritz Cracker Chicken, Roasted Potatoes, Street Corn, rolls, peach and strawberry pie. It was delicious!!!
On the 22nd, we partnered with Who We Play For to do heart screenings on our JH & HS athletes. Our goal is to make sure that all of our athletes are in great physical shape during our contests.
We have set Open House for October 18th from 5-7. We would like to invite the whole community to come up and take a tour of the school and see the new renovations and also enjoy a few hotdogs.
As you can tell, we have had some great things happen the first part of this school year and even better things are in our future!!!
Let's make October a super school month,
