Vernon ISD is blessed to have parents of students who support and appreciate our teachers and staff. To celebrate the end of each 6 weeks, parents at each of our campuses do something a little special for our teachers and staff. As the latest sixth weeks came to an end last week, McCord staff received fruit cups, while Central and Shive parents stocked the teacher’s lounge with snacks, and Middle School staff received handmade cookies and survival kits. Vernon High School staff received hand-delivered treats of their choice. Our students also love to see familiar faces at their schools during their school day. Vernon ISD is very thankful for the support shown to our teachers and staff. We love having parents, families and community members involved in school activities. If you would like to participate, please contact Kori Eakin, Family and Community Engagement Coordinator, at 940-553-1900, ext. 2229 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.

There were a variety of activities for the kids at the Community Resource Event held Saturday morning at the VHS Cafeteria. Firemen from the Vernon Fire Department explained to the youngsters how things operated on the department's ladder truck, and youngsters also had fun in the bounce house. Youngsters enjoyed painting and drawing, blowing bubbles and getting paint tattoos on their face. Vernon ISD Superintendent Dr. Kermit Ward also decided to get in on the tattoo action.
