Calallen East Primary School and Wood River Elementary have been named the recipients of the Texas Business Education Honor Roll Schools Award.

Calallen East has received this honor two years in a row, while Wood River received it for the first time.

Both schools achieved this award by not only being "Exemplary" schools and showing continuous improvement over the years, but also by the outstanding high percentages of commended performance on the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills reading and math portions.

Calallen East and Wood River principals and assistant principals attended the award ceremony dinner in San Antonio on Nov. 9.
