I hope you and your family are having a relaxing summer break. In just a few weeks, schools will be hosting their welcome back "sneak a peak," and students will be heading off to school. The 2011-2012 school year was very successful, and we are so proud of the many accomplishments of our students. I see no reason why the 2012-2013 school year will not be equally as successful. The School Board has approved the FY13 budget, and I am happy to report that there are no reductions in the academic programs, extracurricular activities, and our dedicated staff which make Harris County Schools a great place to learn.
