For the remainder of this week, there will many trucks hauling base material for the tennis courts coming and going during the school day and in the evening. They have been told not to operate from 7:15-8 AM or 2:45 to 3:45 PM. Most are using Link Road from Hwy 46, which is very disturbing to people who live on Link, but they should be finished by Friday.
The month of May will bring noise and disruption to many of our campus areas:
1. Excavation will begin on the band hall expansion, and the band hall will be vacated by this Friday so that renovations may begin. The area around the band hall – front, back, and side will be fenced off. The doors at the end of the art/drama wing of the high school will not be available. Band class will be held in the high school gym. Students going from the high school to Ag. or C Lot will be directed through the track area. Junior High students will have limited access to the technology building, and will have to use the football field area for recreation after lunch. There will be greatly increased construction traffic on the road in back of the Ag buildings, Junior High cafeteria, band hall and the high school cafeteria area. Traffic, other than food delivery and trash pickup, should avoid the area.
2. Excavation will begin on the west side of the Elementary School for the eight classroom addition. Elementary faculty should park up front. Panther Club children should be picked up in the front of the building. Parents may park and go in the front entrance.
Smile and be patient, please. The results will be worth the mess! Students may be moving around in areas that they do not normally walk through. We need to be especially careful in parking lots.
Please let the district know if questions or issues arise that need attention!
32,000 works from across the state were submitted at regional level, students were interviewed and the artwork evaluated by a panel of judges - only 2,000 works advance to State.
The state competition is juried again by the state's top university visual art professors and professional artists. Gold Seal awards are the highest honor, only 120 works of art receive a Gold Seal in the state of Texas.
Brynn's Gold Seal, Washington Island, was inspired by a family vacation photo she worked from as a reference. She created a beautiful rendition in chalk pastel, a medium she had never worked with before but was challenged by her teacher to try it....she ran with it! Her other work, a photograph titled Dried Out, was awarded superior ratings earning another medal.

After a Personal Record on squat with 725lbs, a 25lbs improvement, and posting a 420 bench, Jeremy was in 2nd, 55 lbs down going into the last event-- deadlift. On the last attempt of deadlift, Jeremy needed to pull 580lbs. which would be a new PR by 10lbs. Being Navarro Jacked; Jeremy pulled the 580lbs with 3 white lights, meaning all judges approved. His total of 1725lbs captured the State Championship!
Lane Springs & Jared Leal also represented Navarro High School at the State Powerlifting, Saturday. They both had strong performance in the strongest meet in the State. Jared had a 1370 total. Lane Springs posted a total of 1480. A great end to a great season

Cyberbullying is when someone uses technology like cell phones or email to deliberately and repeatedly harm, embarrass or threaten someone else. Research shows that about one third of 10-18 year-olds have experienced some form of cyberbullying. A recent student suicide in San Antonio points to the critical need for this discussion. Join our school and community in helping our students avoid this pitfall of our digital culture.
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 11TH, From 6:00PM-7:00PM at the HIGH SCHOOL CAFETERIA

ImmTrac is an electronic immunization registry that your vaccinations were reported to by your doctors as you grew up. In order to keep these records available electronically to you as an adult you will need to fill out the adult consent form that was sent home through your English class this week. Mail the form in between your 18th and 19th birthday or your record will be deleted from the system. Extra forms are available in the nurse’s office. Click the link to get a copy of the form.

Dear Navarro ISD Parents and Community Members:
We have begun this year with 1814 students, as compared to 1743 when we closed in May. Our classrooms are full!
Looking at enrollment growth over the last several years, and considering the recommendations of the facilities committees, the Board has decided to ask the community to vote on a bond issue on November 3rd, which would fund several major projects. If approved, the $21 million bond would provide for:
A new Intermediate School (grades 4-6) to be built on 16 acres owned by the district next to the Elementary school;
Eight additional classrooms to be added to the Elementary School for Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and Special Needs;
Expansion and renovation of the High School Band Hall;
Renovation of two science labs at the Junior High, and the conversion of a computer lab to a third science lab; and
Demolition of the existing main Intermediate School building, to be replaced with parking.
We will be holding several informational meetings over the next few months so that you can make an informed decision when you vote. Dates will be posted on the website.
The district and all of our campuses Met Standard under the Texas accountability system. The High School earned one Distinction Designation, the Junior High earned one as well, and the Elementary School earned two. As we compare our district to others around the state, we are proud of our students’ academic performance. Our student body is diverse in terms of ethnicity and family income, but united by high expectations for achievement and citizenship.
I hope that you will explore our website and follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Teachers post the Year at a Glance overview of the curriculum and their weekly lesson plans on their webpages; a full calendar of events is there, including the athletic and band schedules; and you will also find detailed academic and financial information. The district has earned the “Platinum” State Comptroller’s Leadership Circle designation for financial transparency, due to the thoroughness of our web postings. Parents are encouraged to keep up with their children’s grades through TxConnect, and they may sign up to receive important messages through K12 Alerts. You can even monitor what your child eats through Lunch Money Now, as well as paying online.
We are blessed to have tremendous support from parents and community members. We have an active School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) that always welcomes new members, and a Foundation that raises funds to provide for teacher grants for special activities, teaching materials, and equipment. Many parents participate in campus activities such as PTO, Project Graduation, and the Athletic, Band, and Ag. Booster Clubs. The Panther Posse sponsors an annual golf tournament that raises funds to support all of the athletic programs.
This is truly a community that values its schools and prizes high quality education for all of its students. I am proud to be part of it.

Navarro ISD has a strict residency policy, and a limited number of grandfathered tuition transfer students. The district is growing and we are close to outgrowing the Elementary and Intermediate schools. Many core classrooms at the secondary are larger than we would like. Therefore, the Board of Trustees voted to not accept any new transfer families for the 2015- 2016 school year. For this reason, and in order to protect our taxpayers, we are expanding our residency check to include all grade levels.
Erwin-Lee football stadium at Navarro High School is named in honor of Head Football Coach Ruel Erwin and Ag Teacher Norman Lee. A Go Fund Me Site gofundme.com/wmt8zF78 has been started to raise funds to honor their legacy. These two men died on August 11,1971 while helping the Navarro High School Panthers field their first football team. The fund will be use to pay for a monument in honor of these two men at the football field. Many in the community do not know the history of why the field is named after these men. For more information about the project visit the Erwin - Lee Football Field Memorial Facebook page.
