Dear Bandera ISD Community, Parents, and Students,

I am thrilled to extend my warmest welcome to each and every one of you as we embark on the journey of the 2023-2024 school year. It is with great joy and anticipation that we gather once again to continue the legacy of excellence that defines Bandera ISD.

Our teachers and staff have been working hard to ensure your child has a successful start to the school year.  They have been engaged in all forms of professional development and specialized trainings over the summer so they can properly equip their students with the necessary skills for academic success. 

To our incredible students: You are the heart of our community. Your enthusiasm, curiosity, and determination never fail to inspire us. As you step into your classrooms, remember that each day holds the potential for discovery and growth. Embrace the challenges, celebrate the victories, and know that your Bandera ISD family stands beside you, cheering you on every step of the way.

To our dedicated parents and guardians: Your unwavering support forms the cornerstone of our educational endeavor. Your commitment to partnering with us in nurturing the minds and hearts of our students is truly commendable. We value your trust and pledge to create an environment that fosters not only academic achievement but also character development and well-rounded growth.

This year, we are embarking on a journey of continued innovation and excellence. Our commitment to providing a well-rounded education remains steadfast, and we eagerly embrace the opportunities that lie ahead. From advanced academic programs to enriching extracurricular activities, we are dedicated to nurturing the holistic development of every student.

As we step into the 2023-2024 school year, let us carry with us the lessons of the past and the aspirations of the future. Together, as one Bandera ISD family, we will create a community that uplifts, supports, and empowers each other to reach for the stars.

I am truly honored to serve as your Superintendent and look forward to the collective achievements we will accomplish in the days and months to come. I can't wait to see the remarkable growth and success that await us.

With deep appreciation and a heart full of hope,
