Seven Northside PTAs recognized nationally as Schools of Excellence

Seven Northside ISD PTAs have been named 2018-2020 National PTA Schools of Excellence. Cole, Ellison, Hoffmann, Helotes, Los Reyes, and McAndrew elementary schools and Folks Middle School are among 278 schools from across the country to receive this special designation, and are seven of the 10 PTAs in the Bexar County area to receive this top honor.

The awards are given to PTAs for their achievements in building strong family-school partnerships as part of the National PTA’s ongoing efforts to increase family engagement in education.

“We are extremely proud and excited that these schools have been recognized this way,” said Dr. Brian Woods, superintendent. “We know that students succeed when there is a commitment by the parent, a mentor, and/or a role-model to be involved in the life of a child.”

This is the fifth year in a row that NISD PTAs have received this designation. Past recipients include Beard, Leon Springs, Mireles, Murnin, and Scarborough elementary schools, and Folks, Hobby, and Pease middle schools.
