HOUSTON – Mar. 28, 2016 – Appreciation of Spring’s families was at the top of the agenda during a recent community gathering in Spring ISD. The families, whose names grace many of the schools in the district, were invited recently to an appreciation luncheon, to share memories of the past and plans for the future with Dr. Rodney Watson, Spring ISD superintendent.
Watson spoke with school namesakes and descendents of school namesakes about several issues concerning the community and the district, including student mobility, community and business partnerships, and the district’s successful efforts to increase parent involvement.
“In order for us to move our district forward, we have to do some things differently, and we are going to do that while working along with our staff and community, because one of our core values is that we win as a team,” Watson told the group. He added, “We consider you, our namesakes, and the descendents of our namesakes, as an important part of our team.”
