'Thank you' to Calallen voters

On behalf of the Calallen Independent School District staff and the CISD Board of Trustees, I would like to thank you for your overwhelming support of the bond issue for our schools. Your vote on Nov. 6 demonstrated that Calallen ISD's tradition of academic excellence remains a priority for the district and the community.

The Calallen ISD crest boasts of a rich tradition of excellence in academics, athletics, vocations, fine arts, and citizenship. CISD prides itself on providing our students with a world-class education that maximizes our students' educational opportunities. You have helped to ensure that we remain able to fulfill our mission.

I encourage you to be involved in your child's education; get to know the teacher and campus administrators and attend school functions. You are also invited to attend the regularly scheduled meetings of our board of trustees.

The slogan for this bond election was "Our Students ~ Our Future." Your commitment to our schools is evident; my commitment is to continue CISD's tradition of excellence by maintaining our focus on the future - our children.

Dr. Arturo Almendarez

Superintendent of Calallen schools
