PTA Early Bird Awards

Five Spring Branch ISD elementaries and one middle school have earned the Early Bird Achievement Membership Award from Texas PTA for recruiting 100 percent of last year’s membership this early in the current school year.

SBISD campuses earning this state group honor include Bunker Hill, Nottingham, Pine Shadows, Rummel Creek and Terrace elementaries. Cornerstone Academy, a district-sponsered charter school, has also been named an Early Bird Award winner.

In addition, several other SBISD schools have earned separate Texas PTA awards.

“When families and members of the community join their local PTA, they are simultaneously committing to engagement in the schools, empowering themselves as parents and caring adults, and pledging to be an advocate for the children and youth who call Texas home,” a Texas PTA news release stated about the awards.

The Texas Legislature will begin work in January on its annual, two-year budget and other education related matters, including public school financing.

“Every member counts when we work to make every child’s potential a reality at the Capitol,” the parent-driven education advocacy group also said.
