Prepping for School

The first day back to school is just days away and  faculty and staff all over Texoma  are gearing up. The Wichita Falls Independent School District is looking forward to bring in a good school year.

Teachers and staff said they are excited to kick off the 2012 - 2013 school year, but there's a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes.

WFISD officials said preparations include everything from decorating classrooms, to multiple staff meetings around the clock. District officials also said they hope the new message from the new Superintendent, Dr. John Frossard, to step up and step out, will help reach and inspire students.

Renee Murphy, Public Information Officer with WFISD, said, "The new message will inspire people to think in different ways." Murphy added, "Teachers will go into the classroom this year and understand that all students are in need of love, attention and development in certain ways that may be different from another child."

Monday morning Wichita Falls faculty and staff kicked off their annual district rally at First Baptist Church. WFISD officials said about 1,700 attended.

WFISD is reminding parents to make sure kids are up to date on their shots. They also want to encourage parents to start getting kids back into the school routine, so come August 27th all students are fresh and ready for their first week of school.
