Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. We are excited to kick off PRMS's second year. The campus is beautiful and more than capable of comfortably facilitating the over 1250 students that attend each day. Our faculty and staff have been planning and are ready to guide your students into new opportunities.
Pieper Ranch is the district's first New Tech Network campus. With New Tech Network, your students have opportunities to collaborate across classes; working as teams or individually with project based learning, your students will gain the skills necessary to perform in our ever-changing technological world and be ready for the rigors and expectations of higher learning.
Already we have achieved so much. Our Cross-Country and 7th grade Volleyball teams have both brought home district championships. Our theater students won first in One-Act Play competition. Our Robotics team, the Circuit Serpents, have left a mark at competition. We are truly setting a tradition of excellence and high performance, raising the standard in all aspects of our students' education.
We invite the community to get involved and be a part as we create a tradition of positive performance and new opportunities.
October is breast cancer awareness month, and for one Comal ISD campus, the disease has hit home. A beloved teacher was diagnosed this summer with the disease, and her outlook has become an inspiration to everyone she meets.
Annually, high school students from across the United States participate in a leadership program designed to teach them about citizenship and government. Students from Comal ISD learned the importance of getting involved at Boys State and Girls State.
At its regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday, the Comal ISD Board of Trustees approved a 7-cent decrease in the district’s tax rate, lowering it from 1.39 to $1.32. The new rate goes into effect immediately.
All month, campuses across the district have hosted campaigns to raise not only money, but also awareness of childhood cancer. One of the main reasons the district is so invested in raising awareness is because of students like the five featured here who continue to fight and show amazing courage and strength every day.
