We are so excited about this school year!! Thank you so much for sharing your child with us this year. Please take time to get to know your child’s teacher. We are available by phone, email and scheduled conferences.
We are happy to share that Acton Elementary received a Met Standard rating from Texas Education Association for the 2016-2017 school year. Acton is a great place to be!! Our teachers and students work really hard, and we are so proud of them. This year we have all day Pre-Kindergarten and our district has partnered with Right at School, which is an afterschool program that is onsite.
At Acton, we are Anchored in Learning. 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.
