Tuloso-Midway ISD celebrated student accomplishments at the regularly scheduled school board meeting Monday night.


First, Tuloso-Midway High School Student Leaders presented a video they prepared, and edited, which left attendees with a reflection of the many aspects of the education given by Tuloso-Midway schools. The student leaders are a product of Iris Chapa’s class at the high school.


Second, the Business Professionals of America were present with seven high school students going to nationals in Boston, MA in May. They each presented on their criteria and awards received. They are products of the BPA classes of Debby Hughes and Lori Doubrava. The students going to national competition are: Aynsley Chaloupka, Catherine Seams, Rush Hoelscher, Kelly Xac, Madeleine Maltais, Wilson Carter, and Tyler Graves.


A Tuloso-Midway Middle School BPA student also placed for Nationals. Seventh grader Riley King attended for her first time, representing the middle school at any BPA event. She participated in the spreadsheet competition, taking first place, and will be going to national competition. She will be joining the seven Tuloso-Midway High School BPA students going to Boston, MA in May. Riley is the daughter and student of teacher sponsor for BPA Leslie King.


The third item of note on the agenda was a tribute to special patrons. The Texas Association of School Boards' “Stand Up for Texas Public School” Campaign honors businesses in the Tuloso-Midway community for their generosity and commitment to help make a real difference for the kids and this community. Local students, parents, and teachers directly benefit from companies such as these that are willing to stand up for public school, not just in words but in their actions. The school district wishes to applaud these community partners for their participation and hopes that this partnership will continue to be a strong relationship for year to come.


A special encouragement was given to Boy Scout Troop 252 for their attendance at the board meeting as part of their Citizenship Badge. School board members felt they were very attentive. They would like to wish them well and look forward to sharing in the celebration of their Eagle Scout confirmation.


Along with these acknowledgements another item discussed and approved was the Adoption of the 2016-2017 Official School Year Calendar.
