Klein ISD: Celebrating Students, Alumni & Partners, 90 Seconds

773

We began the February Klein ISD Board of Trustees meeting celebrating awesome students and teachers from French Elementary and Wunderlich Intermediate schools. Listening to the accomplishments of our students and the stories of our educators who tirelessly bring our Promise2Purpose vision to life every day is always a highlight of the meeting.

The Board also recognized judges from the Harris County court system. These Promise2Purpose investors selflessly spent time with students at Klein Forest High School last week, where they discussed the importance of leadership and the positive opportunities of failing forward.  

We were treated to a wonderful presentation from the student leaders of Culture4Caring as part of our strategic priority, Build Community. These students founded Culture4Caring last summer with a mission to make EVERY student in Klein ISD feel cared for and loved. Their dedication to the Klein ISD vision of EVERY student entering with a promise and exiting with a purpose is inspiring.

Lone Star College University Park was honored for the countless ways they collaborate with… and support Klein ISD and most importantly, our students. If ever a higher educational institution could be considered a Promise2Purpose investor, Lone Star College would be a prime example! Their partnership with our district is invaluable and we’re grateful for them every day.

Molly O’Bannion was recognized as the February Klein ISD Alumni of the Month. Dr. O’Bannion, a Klein Oak High School grad, serves the Klein community as a veterinarian who also selflessly gives her time and talents to current Klein ISD FFA students by providing her veterinary services. Congratulations, Dr. O’Bannion and thank you for being a shining example of a P2P investor.

Saint Dunstan’s Episcopal Church was saluted as the February Stand Up for Texas Public Schools award winner.

And wrapping up the awards portion of the meeting was the fine folks in our Food Services department. They were awarded the Healthier US School Challenge Smarter Lunchroom Award.

And a couple of business items of interest.  The Board approved the project initiation for the auditorium and dance addition at Klein Oak High School, and a contract award for a facility renovations project.
