SO proud of our SES kiddos & their servant hearts!!! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•

Shallowater Elementary has had some students doing GREAT things!! Let's see what their teachers had to say about them!

"Rylee is a great leader. She supports her friends, is always ready with a helping hand, and her smiling face brightens our classroom." - Mrs. Garner

"Millie and Sophie see a need within our classroom family and are the first ones to problem solve and help with a solution. They both have servant's hearts and are always willing and ready to show kindness and help others." - Mrs. Vincent

"Zachary is always ready to help his classmates! He is thoughtful, kind, and aware of when his friends need an extra word of encouragement to turn their day around." - Mrs. Garner

"Henry was super sweet today and asked Mrs. Jackson if she needed help carrying in Sonic drinks. He is always willing to lend a helping hand!" - Mrs. Davis

Good afternoon, SISD.

Please read this important announcement regarding a new crosswalk that is being added on Ave. L between the high school and the 13th St. area effective tomorrow (click on the map below for a more detailed view).

While the road has not been striped by TXDOT, this new walkway will be monitored during after school dismissal by Officer Rumfield to assist students in safely crossing into the neighborhoods North of the Yesway convenience store. Officer Hix will remain on duty at the primary crosswalk between the middle school and the high school.

In preparation for next school year, we will be conducting more comprehensive assessments of campus traffic patterns with a focus on the safety of our students, staff, and community.

As always, we appreciate your support!


Hope our little Leprechauns are having a great week! 😁
