TISD Bluebonnet Extravaganza

TISD Bluebonnet Reading Extravaganza

Yesterday, students across Temple ISD, attended the Bluebonnet Extravaganza at the Temple High School Library. Some of our very own 4th & 5th grade students were able to attend the special event, which recognizes the efforts of students who read at least 5 of the Texas Bluebonnet Award winning books. At the event, students participated in a variety of activities and crafts related to the books that they read. Our campus librarian, Mrs. Donofrio, helped coordinate the event.

Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) Make an Impact

Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students)

The Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) program, was implemented with fidelity during the 2015-2016 school year. Due to the success of the program, Top Dog Napoleon Rios decided to continue it for the 2016-2017 school year. The dads volunteer for an entire school day and help with tutoring, car duty, lunch duty, and most importantly, serve as mentors for the students at our school. The Temple Daily Telegram ran a story on them and we have linked the online article to this story. Thank you Watch D.O.G.S.!
