Congratulations to following All-District recipients. The Vernon High School Girls Basketball Team worked extremely hard this past season. Our young ladies played with great effort in every contest and will be a force to be reckoned with throughout our district for the foreseeable future. These accomplishments speak as a testament to their hard work, sacrifice, and never give up attitude throughout this past season. We are extremely excited about what's on the horizon for Lady Lions Basketball.

Today, our VISD Superintendent, Dr. Ward, met with all staff to discuss teacher retention and pay. He stated that the VISD Board of Trustees and many district staff have been working hard to propose a new salary scale. While details are still being worked out, and the current state legislative session may have further impact on the teacher pay increases, he wanted the staff to know that their hard work and dedication does not go unrecognized by anyone. More information will be posted publicly as it is finalized. In the meantime, please take a moment to watch this video that has been created to discuss teacher retention: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Frbq-1dhtolJw3tYAgv5jvulT0sIV9Om/view?usp=sharing

Ms. Shafer has been teaching our students about Plant Science this school year. They have learned how to propagate plants (cutting a big mother plant into smaller plants), and even planted some of these by seeds. They have learned that sometimes propagating, and even planting seeds, doesn't work and that it is okay. These students have been putting in a lot of effort and worked on getting their hands dirty to create something beautiful. Here are just a few things our students have planted so far this year: -Yellow Squash -Purple and Green Sweet Potato Vine (big pots and little pots) -Aloe Vera -Green Bell Peppers -Sweet Peppers -Hot Peppers -Peppermint -Oregano -Tomatoes -Airplane/Spider plant -Wandering Jew -Fireball Marigolds -Hens and chicks succulents - 4'oclocks -Oopsie seeds (a package that just had a random type of seed) Keep learning! You are doing a fantastic job!

Dr. Harrison is here today visiting with our VMS and VHS students about bullying prevention. This morning he was at the high school and this afternoon he'll be talking to our middle school students. Our students were great in the presentation and by now I am no longer even surprised! Please remember that Dr. Harrison will be at the Wilbarger Auditorium TONIGHT at 6:00pm for our parents and the community. Please come out and participate so that we can all work together to prevent bullying in our schools.

Bullying Presentation
I maintain that VISD kids are collectively the best kids I have ever been around. Our kids consistently demonstrate to me that they are not resistant to working within the expectations that we set for them. Although expectations for our students existed here before me, I encourage each staff member in this district to evaluate those expectations and ask themselves are there opportunities to elevate our current expectations thus forcing our kids to perform at an even higher level. While I do not consider bullying to be a critical issue in VISD, it is an issue that I want us to address. We have a responsibility to the community, and to our kids, to be proactive in our planning. For this reason, we are bringing Dr. George Harrison to Vernon to speak to our students. He will be meeting with the VMS and VHS students during the school day. In addition, we have asked him to meet with our community and parents as well. We want everyone to work together to help prevent bullying. I am encouraging each VISD parent to support the district’s effort and attend the parent presentation on bullying on Tuesday night at 6:00pm at Wilbarger Auditorium. Dr. Ward

Today, I sat in on the ACT prep sessions with all VHS 11th graders that we arranged. I am very proud of the effort and attentiveness of our kids as they learned quite a bit about the needed approach to being successful on the ACT test. The district paid for each 11th grader to have access to this opportunity and will follow this up with paying for each and every 11th grader at VHS to take the ACT on campus in a few weeks. Districts often say that they have high expectations for each student, yet will stumble when asked for proof. This is just one demonstration of our proof. ALL really does mean ALL in V.I.S.D. and I am loving it. Dr. Kermit Ward Superintendent
