A great Spartan crowd showed up on Saturday, August 6 as we welcomed around 2,000 attendees to the second annual Party on the Plaza. Our Educational Plaza was filled with families, staff, and community ready to close out the summer and embark on the 2022-23 school year together.
We are preparing each student to become a critical thinker and an ethical, productive citizen. Our stories are meant to inspire, inform and educate families on happenings throughout the school and district.
At the close of the 2021-22 school year, Stafford MSD hosted an awards ceremony to honor employees of the year on Tuesday, June 7. District Teacher of the Year was awarded to Meghann Adkins, a U.S. History and AP Human Geography teacher. District Rookie Teacher of the Year went to Meredith Mohr, an English Language Arts and AP Language and Composition teacher.
At this time of the year, it's important for our technology team to review and reset each device in order to keep iPads in the best condition. In order to do this, we need all Spartan students to return their iPads even if they plan to return for summer learning. Students will be able to turn in their device on the date set by the campus principal, and/or after the last final exam.
On May 16, the Stafford MSD Board of Trustees reviewed and discussed the official canvass results from the general election held earlier this month in the City of Stafford including swearing in new members and reorganizing the group. For the first time in the district's 40-year history, there are currently 3 board members who also graduated from Stafford High School including Manuel Hinojosa, Dawn Reichling and newest member Patricia Soza-Montelongo.
We are proud to announce the Texas Computer Education Association (TCEA) has selected Dr. Robert Bostic as the 2022 District Administrator of the Year for his work in advancing teaching and learning through innovative technology at Stafford MSD.
According to the Stafford Police, our complex is safe and clear at this time. Although we are committed to a climate of safety and security on campus, disruptive threats of any kind and dangerous rumors can cause emotional distress to any individual including students and staff. We encourage our parents and families to talk with your students at home about these incidents as each individual plays a critical role during emergency situations. SMSD remains here to support all students and staff, and will continue with safety planning drills and conversations about appropriate responses to these types of situations.
