Superintendent's Daily Update

The storms continue to wreak havoc across the state.  Our prayers are with the communities and schools across Texas being affected by the flooding and storm damage. 

A lot of good has been happening at Van ISD.  Last Saturday, our Vandal baseball team defeated the Bullard Panthers in the Regional Quarterfinal round of the playoffs.  They will take on Argyle in the Regional Semifinal round with the first game scheduled for Thursday at 7:30 p.m., in Argyle.  Game 2 will be played on Saturday at 2:00 p.m. in Lindale followed by Game 3, if necessary.  This has also been a successful week for our UIL academic teams that traveled to Austin to compete in the State tournament.  The Social Studies team came in 2nd place with Sophomore Jackson Heard placing 5th individually.  Our One-Act Play cast and crew began their week taking a private tour of the Governor’s Mansion with First Lady Cecilia Abbott.  On Tuesday, they competed at the State UIL OAP contest where they came in 3rd place.  Our VHS choir students competed at the State Solo and Ensemble Competition and came home with 4 gold and 8 silver medals.  We had 26 band members and twirlers that also competed at the State Solo and Ensemble Competition.  They brought home 11 gold and 5 silver medals.  It is evident their hard work has paid off.  Congratulations to all of these students!!  We hope to have more results to share tomorrow. 

This evening, our FFA students will be honored at their annual banquet which is being held at the high school cafeteria beginning at 6:00 p.m.  Graduation will be held for our Pre-K and Head Start students on Thursday at the high school cafeteria beginning at 6:00 p.m.  The graduation ceremony for the VHS Class of 2015 will be held Friday evening at TJC’s Wagstaff Gym, beginning at 7:00 p.m., and on Monday, June 1, our Kindergarten students will graduate at the high school gymnasium beginning at 6:00 p.m. 

We have 88 days before the first day of school and a lot of work to do to get ready for that first day.  #WeAreVan
