We are thankful for the wonderful La Porte High School JROTC, Band, Chatos, Choir, American Sign Language students, and everyone else who organized and took part in the annual Veterans Day ceremony at the Bulldog Centre. Additionally, we are thankful to other schools across the district that showed their gratitude to our veterans with musical performances, readings, walls of honor and even a drive-thru parade. We are eternally grateful to the people who have served in our armed forces, so that celebrations such as these are possible.
You might have heard that we are exploring a bond package for May 2023. The bond would fund academic program expansions, infrastructure, and preventative maintenance projects, an educational conference center and possibly a multi-purpose stadium. As you know, parents can choose where they live and send their children to school. We believe these projects would help keep La Porte ISD on the cutting edge and competitive with many of our neighboring districts, who have recently passed bond packages for these very reasons.
It goes without saying that positive energy and culture are abundant in our district. We are all working together to promote our district in a meaningful way, as there are many young families who are moving to our community and enrolling their children in our district. We aim to make La Porte ISD the absolute best district for our families and community by offering a world-class education in a safe and nurturing environment, and by preparing students for a brighter tomorrow, today! Great things are truly happening in La Porte ISD because you make the difference!
The Thanksgiving holiday is a welcome respite for most of us, and it is my hope that everyone can celebrate the spirit of being thankful and find some time to take care of you!
Happy, Thankful and Blessed,
Walter Jackson, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
