Red Ribbon Week is next week, Oct. 23-26! This is an important time to focus on drug abuse prevention and the dangers and consequences of illegal drug and tobacco use. This year's focus will be on vaping - the trends, health effects, and other important information. Join us as we observe the following theme days at all TISD campuses: Monday -"Lei off of Drugs" - Hawaiian or tropical clothing Tuesday - "Drugs are twisted" - Wear tie-dye shirts Wednesday - "Be SMART, be drug free" - Students and staff wear college shirts Thursday - "Put a cap on Drugs" - Students are allowed to wear hats #WeAreTISD #RedRibbonWeek2023
The "Big Move" continues! This time with help from our student athletes in addition to staff and administrators and Dr. Davis' husband, John Davis - BIG thank you! It's the final phase of our transition to create better learning opportunities and space for our students by moving Tarkington Early Childhood School (TECS) for Pre-K and Kindergarten to what was formerly the Intermediate campus, and Tarkington Elementary School (TES) for grades 1-5 to the Primary campus. Great job, Longhorns! #LonghornNation #longhornsforlife #summer2023

The Big Move has begun! We've entered the last phase of our transition to create better learning opportunities and space for our students. Tarkington Early Childhood School (TECS) for Pre-K and Kindergarten has moved to what was formerly the Intermediate campus, and Tarkington Elementary School (TES) for grades 1-5 will now be at what was the Primary campus. Dr. Davis and our central office staff and administrators, campus staff and administrators and faculty (and even their kids), as well as our athletics coaches and students, have all pitched in alongside our maintenance and custodial staff to make this move happen. It's not quite finished, but teamwork makes the dream work! Thanks, everyone! We see your hard work and we appreciate you! #HornsUp #LonghornNation #summer2023
