    We are happy to share that Acton Elementary received the highest rating of Met Standard from Texas Education Association for the 2016-2017 school year.  Acton is a great place to be!! Our teachers and students worked really hard and we are so proud of them.  This year we will have all day Pre-Kindergarten and our district has partnered with Right at School, which is an afterschool program that will be onsite.

Our new facility will provide numerous opportunities and experiences during the 2017-2018 year.  We encourage you to partner with us and join PTA to support our students and teachers.  We have many events planned for our students this school year such as Student of the Month, Fall Carnival, fundraisers & prizes, etc.  We cannot do it without your partnership.

    Charles C. Acton Elementary opened in 1978, with an addition in 1980 and renovations in 2003.  The school was named for former superintendent Charles C. Acton (1945-1951).  The school serves grades PK-4.

He received his BS from East Texas State Teachers College, a masters degree from Southern Methodist University, and did additional post-graduate work at the University of Houston.
