Area schools ready for Open House

Como-Pickton, Sulphur Bluff, Cumby and North Hopkins school districts have announced their plans to celebrate Texas Public Schools Week, March 9-13, with special designated activities.


Good Kids Doing Good Things

Cub Scouts, which range in rank from Tiger Cubs through Webelos, entertained parents and guests by working together to perform a patriotic song Thursday night during Pack 77’s Blue & Gold Banquet at Bowie Elementary. The banquet is the time Cub Scouts receive patches, pins, beads, arrows and other awards which count toward rank advancement (from bobcat to tiger, wolf, bear and webelos). Patches for cubs advancing in rank are also awarded at that time. In addition to the pack song, each den also performed either a skit or song for guests while enjoying a hamburger and hot dog supper.

Good Partnerships Doing Good Things

Travis’ Parent Teacher Organization applied for and received a $5,000 grant from Lowe’s Corporation for the cleanup. Travis PTO matched the donation, so that $10,000 of beautification and updating could be done to the playground. The local Lowe’s store is discounting materials bought for the project.

Public School Week set March 9-13

Sulphur Springs Independent School District, like most districts across the state, will observe Texas Public Schools Week from March 9-13.
