Celebrate Texas Public Schools Week in Lamar CISD

Mar 04, 2019 | Community Relations

Please join Lamar CISD in recognizing March 4-8 as Celebrate Texas Public Schools Week.

At its February meeting, the Board of Trustees approved a resolution declaring Celebrate Texas Public Schools Week. The week-long event is celebrated throughout Texas and celebrates Texas public schools.

Texas has historically been dedicated to a strong public education system. Texas Public Schools Week is a tradition begun by the Masonic Lodges of Texas in 1950 and places special emphasis upon education during this celebration of Texas Public Schools. This week marks more than 160 years of a free public education in Texas. 

Lamar CISD will be among the more than 1,000 school districts across the state celebrating Texas Public Schools Week during March 2019. In every field—science, engineering, music, technology, etc.—you see the positive effects of Texas Public Schools. Our students, teachers and staff members continue to give us excellent reasons to celebrate their innumerable achievements.
