Crandall Independent School District kicked off the start of the 2018-2019 School Year with a bang! The district’s focus this year is on Character, one of its core value words, and CISD put on a show-stopping convocation on August 7, 2018.
By utilizing the story of The Wizard of Oz, CISD used students this year, in lieu of a keynote speaker. The students told the story and emphasized the values that the district will spend the year focusing on through song, dance, theatre and prose. Award-winning performers included The Crandall High School Band, The Crandall High School Theatre Department, The Crandall High School Cheerleaders and the Crandall High School Gold Dusters. There were also performances from a choir consisting of Elementary and Middle School Students, speakers from Crandall Middle School and Assistant Principal, L.D. Johnson.
In an unprecedented move, the Crandall ISD Board of Trustees bestowed a unique gift to the staff. A one-time monetary gift of 2% of staff members salaries for the 18-19 school year was distributed to each employee.
Crandall ISD is grateful for a supportive School Board and looks forward to a dynamic and incredible school year.
