What a great day to be a THRALL TIGER!!! Great things are happening in Texas schools, but specifically here in our special town. We are all excited to being in the new high school building. Now is a great time to celebrate old traditions, as well as create new ones. Our academic progress, college readiness initiatives, and overall student participation levels are all up. We have a solid staff in place (0% turnover) with some of the best teachers, and coaches in the state working towards our student’s futures.
I cannot speak enough about the hard work that occurs day in and day out at Thrall High School. We look at students, not just as academic pupils, but also as the whole student. Building well-rounded citizens who can think for themselves, take on life’s challenges, problem solve, communicate effectively, work as the part of a team, and contribute in a meaningful way is the ultimate goal. Today’s young people need to be preparing to lead our world through uncertain times in the future. Creating long lasting relationships with the staff and each other, is one of the most important steps our students take on this journey towards success.
We also promote leadership within our entire student body on a daily basis. Research shows that small town students are willing to compete, take risks in the learning process, and can stand toe to toe with others on the global job market. As technology and workplace demands change daily, one thing stays the same, and that is that hard work pays off.
These are some of the things that the community of Thrall, and Thrall ISD prides itself in. On behalf of the entire staff and student body, I want to thank you for the opportunity to work with the young people of Thrall in this endeavor.
It is a GREAT day to be a Tiger!
