Committed to providing the tools, framework and solid foundation that is vital toward the future of our children, San Benito CISD recently celebrated this year’s Celebrate Texas Public Schools (CTPS) campaign – “The Power of Public.”

Established in 1950 by the Masonic Lodges of Texas, the weeklong celebration (formerly known as “Texas Public Schools Week”) is structured to publicly recognize the many contributions made by the state’s free system of education. The annual celebration has become one of the most meaningful ways to showcase the many educational opportunities given to each and every one of the over 5.2 million students attending Texas’ public schools.

Locally, the weeklong celebration highlighted the extraordinary and creative teaching and high level of learning that San Benito students are experiencing daily.

From studying Texas History and celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday to promoting career day and enjoying family picnics, students and campus personnel enjoyed the special celebration in creative and unique ways.

During the week long celebration, schools also opened their doors and invited parents, grandparents, and members of the community to visit classrooms, participate in open house events, and take a first-hand look at how educators, with the support from parents and the community, are empowering all students with the tools necessary to succeed.

Open house festivities that included History exhibits, musical concerts, and book fairs reinforced for parents, grandparents, and community members the school district is committed to providing for each child a quality education.
