Nine Campuses Receive Honor from Texas PTA

When it comes to promoting the success of students, the MISD faculty and staff are known to take a front row seat in the cheering section. Every now and then, we are presented with an opportunity to shift our perspective and tip our hats to those behind-the-scenes supporters.

The Texas PTA reserves a special honor for PTA councils that have recruited 100% of their campus faculty, The Golden Apple Award.

The Golden Apple Award represents unity and teamwork between parents, community members and faculty.

We are pleased to announce the nine MISD campuses that have received this award so far in the 2010 – 2011 school year:
Alice Ponder Elementary
Anna May Daulton Elementary
Charlotte Anderson Elementary
Della Icenhower Intermediate
Janet Brockett Elementary
Linda Jobe Middle
Mansfield Legacy High
Martha Reid Elementary
Roberta Tipps Elementary
We are so proud of these campuses for demonstrating such steadfast support for the MISD through their commitment to the PTA.

“The Charlotte Anderson Elementary faculty and staff have received the Golden Apple Award six years in a row,” said Principal, Dr. Miller Beaird. “We believe strongly in the benefits of a strong relationship between teachers and parents. One of the main reasons CAE continues to be an excellent campus is the teamwork and collaboration between the faculty and our wonderful PTA.”

The PTA strives to engage families and communities to advocate for all children, and this list of award recipients is proof that the MISD faculty, staff and parents are working diligently to make that mutual vision a reality.

It’s not too late to submit a Golden Apple Award application for your campus PTA! This award is presented year-round to PTAs meeting the requirements.
