Igniting Passion For Reading

Captain Ramon and Firefighter Oefinger from the Converse Fire Department took time to joined Miller's Point Students in the pursuit of Literacy. It's one more way to grow a love for reading in students. In the words of Dr. Suess, " The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” Thank you to these community members for showing that people who love to read come from all different walks of life.

It's A Playoff Trifecta! Rockets, Patriots, & T-Birds

It's not every year that each comprehensive high school in a district makes the playoffs...so this is a time to remember, relish, and ride as far as possible.  Each team is hoping for the best and taking each game separately as a challenge.  The Rockets have been so close for the last several years...the Thunderbirds have dealt with some challenging years in the district position they were in...and the Patriots are working through their first varsity season, and they're in post-season play!  Let's do all we can to support these kids that are playing in memorable times.
