Homecoming is Here!!
Nothing brings out Tiger Pride like our Annual Homecoming!!! The Tigers will take on Maud at 6:00 PM in the District 11-2A opening game. The Annual Downtown Parade will begin at 2:00 PM sharp (Note the time a little later out of respect for the King Nursery 100th Anniversary celebration earlier in the day). This year’s theme is “Protect Our House” paying homage to first responders, military servicemen and women, police officers, and the fire department. This year’s Grand Marshall is Jackie Kirkwood who is a long time Tenaha resident, Tiger supporter, and has served many roles as a “Protector” of our house as an officer and a member of the National Reserve. Pre-game activities and the crowning of this year’s Homecoming Queen will take place at 5:30 in Tiger Stadium. See you all there!!!
On Tuesday, October 27 TISD will be hosting the first ever Tenaha Parent Academy. All parents, supporters, and interested guests are invited to come the TISD cafetorium for a 90 minute informational symposium about the inner workings of Public Education. Also, there will be a Tiger Café with Catfish baskets available for guests to enjoy. Session topics of interest that patrons can attend include details about Discipline Management and Expectations, Graduation requirements, state law, and College preparation, and Extra-Curriculars 101. Visitors will also receive sample questions from the State Mandated STAAR and End of Course exams to get a view of what students are required to learn. And, finally, parents will have the opportunity to meet face to face with teachers about their student’s needs. Stay tuned to the Tiger Alert, the Website, and the Tiger Weekly for more details.
