2019-2020 School District Calendar Update
Campus and district administrators have been meeting and discussing ways to improve curriculum and instruction throughout the district. One of the areas we looked at has to do with our school calendar. We looked at the possibility of moving from a six week grading calendar to a nine week grading period. This option will give us more classroom instruction time each grading period. This option does not change the start date or the end date of the school year. After discussion with campus and district site base teams, we took the information to the school board on April 25th, 2019. The new calendar was approved and will be in place for the 2019-2020 school year. We have attached the updated calendar to the website, along with the new nine-week eligibility calendar for the 2019-2020 school year.

WARREN ISD BOARD RECOGNITIONS
Tyler County Fair Recap
Once again, Warren FFA and 4H students dominated at the Tyler County Fair. We placed 31 animals in the sale, winning Grand Champion in 5 out of 6 categories (steers, swine, goats, boilers, and rabbits), and Reserve Champion in that 6th category (lambs)! These kids have worked tirelessly for many months, and it was gratifying to see the fruits of those labors. We send out special congratulations to all Fair participants; you represented Warren well. We also thank Ag teachers Mr. Rex Currie, Mr. Matt Swinney, and Ms. Ashlyn Pigg for all their work and support. We also appreciate the many supporters of our kids at the sale; they couldn’t have done it without you!
