from the Superintendent: Jason Marshall
Palestine ISD enjoyed a
Homecoming parade & pep rally
on Monday. Students from all
campuses, their parents, and PISD
staff showed their Wildcat spirit
with help from Sparky, the
Palestine Fire Department’s
mascot. I would like to thank Bill
Rogers of Bacon Autoplex, and
Scott Johnson of H&W Honda
Powerhouse for use of their
vehicles and ATV’s for the parade.
Tonight at 7:30 pm, the Wildcat
football team will play Pittsburg at
Wildcat Stadium. At halftime, two
Palestine ISD alumni, Sandra

Peterson, Minnesota Vikings
running back and the NFL Most
Valuable Player for 2013, will be
inducted into the Palestine ISD
Wall of Honor. Due to the Wall
of Honor ceremony, there will be
numerous television and radio
stations in attendance along with
many loyal Wildcat fans.
Palestine ISD enrollment is
continuing to grow each week. I
appreciate the students for coming to school each day and our
parents and staff for making
every effort to ensure our students are in school.

The State of Texas was successful
in getting a waiver this week that
waives the requirement for
school districts to meet federal
AYP standards. This will allow all
schools in the state of Texas to
focus only on the standards
established by the state of
Texas. Congratulations to the
Texas Education Agency and
Commissioner of Education,
Michael Williams for helping
streamline our current
accountability system. Thank you
also to organizations such as
TASA, TASB, TAMS, TREA,
and TACS for their work on the
AYP appeal.

Football Managers
Volleyball Girls
The 7th Grade
football managers
prepare for the
game by filling the
hydration stations
and taking them
out to the players.
Where would we be
without the help of
these young
students? They
truly are an
important part of
the team.
Our Volleyball girls show great Improvement
with the time and effort they are putting into
practice each week. Their next game will be on
Thursday,
October 17
at PJH. We
hope to
bring a win
home
against
Rusk.
Yearbook
Teachers
Mi Futuro
The Yearbook students are off to a
great start this year already
advertising the upcoming year book.
This yearbook looks promising as
we have already had so many great
events and
a ton of
talented
students
working
hard to
create it.
Our teachers strategize on the best
ways to review our students for the
CBA’s given this week. Both 7th
and 8th grade students were given
their ELA, Math, Social Studies,
and
Science
CBA’S.
The MI FUTURO Mentoring
Group met this Wednesday and the
program is a great success. We are
so lucky to have these volunteers
who will help our students prepare
for a career after high school. It’s
never
too
early to
get
started.

Southside Elementary
School
Stephen Cooksey: Principal
Students are “Diving into Learning” here at Southside Elementary!
NBA Stars
ESTAR Buzz
Future NBA stars were having a
BLAST participating in a Class
Competition Basketball Game…What
a great way to
spend your
recess time…
knocking down
a few 3’s!!
Numbers are still the BUZZ around
Southside! This week our students were
using ESTAR for Math. This new
program should
prove to be very
helpful.
Bonnie’s Cabbage Program
Our 3rd Grade students are participating in the Bonnie’s Cabbage Program…This program provides
each and every 3rd grade student with a cabbage plant to “look after” and take a photo with once it
reaches maturity. Students will have the opportunity to win a $1,000 scholarship for their efforts
from the Bonnie Plant Farm based out of Union Springs, Alabama. AWESOME!!

Learning Centers
Head Start
Ms. Murray’s students are very busy throughout the day,
working on emerging skills like turn taking, conflict
management, phonological awareness, math knowledge,
and other academic behavioral and social skills. One of the
ways this is achieved is through learning centers. Learning
centers allow children
to manipulate materials,
explore ideas, discover
consequences, build,
create and express
themselves.
Washington ECC has added another
new group of Head Start 4 year olds.
Smiles and excitement were on all of
their faces as they
began their new
journey at PISD.
Buggy Ride
“Out for a buggy ride.” Ali Harding, Benjamin Sanchez, Madison Hardin,
Landon Willard, Karis Marcellus and Malia Wright took time out of their busy
day to take a little buggy ride. Way too cute!!! Ms. Carolyn and Ms. Brittany are
enjoying working with these babies in their earliest years and have formed
deep, meaningful bonds with each of these babies. These babies and their
parents appreciate and trust these two wonderful ladies.
Learning about Feelings
While learning about feelings and
the letter “F” Mrs.
Carrizales’ students
had to make a Face on
their playdough mat
representing their
Feelings for the day.
Learning about Senses
While learning about their senses, Mrs. Carrizales’ class
went on a listening walk. While on their walk they each had
a chart with pictures on
it if they heard a bird,
car, or airplane
etc. They had to put an
X by it; if they heard
something that was not
on the chart they had to
draw what they heard
on their chart.

Technology
Technology has been continuing to support the district in its technology needs. Tech tickets are worked daily. Wifi has
now been enabled at DAEP. We have been reworking our Security Camera system, including replacing those cameras
that are non-working or obsolete. Once completed, the campuses will each have the ability to monitor their own campus.
Shortly, we will be increasing our internet up to 200 Mbps.
