Celebrating Over 50 Years of Excellence
Big Thanks for Food Donations
A huge Thank You goes out to every family who donated non-perishable food items for our holiday food drive. Kimberlin Knights donated 522 canned and dried items for food insecure families in the Garland, Rowlett and Sachse areas. That is 1.2 food items per student! GISD is reaching out to more families this year so donations from participating schools will go to the Salvation Army and Good Samaritans in Garland, Operation Rowlett Reindeer and the Crossroads House Food Pantry of Sachse.
Evidence of Excellence Award
Kimberlin Academy received an Evidence of Excellence award from the Garland ISD Board of Trustees on October 14, 2014. This was awarded in recognition for fostering family-school partnerships and being named a 2014-2016 National PTA School of Excellence. Just 170 campuses nationwide received this honor for showing progress in the arts, cultural exploration and education in health and safety.
TEA Names Title I Reward Schools
The Texas Education Agency recently announced its list of Title I Reward schools for the 2013-2014 school year. Kimberlin Academy earned recognition in High-Performance and High Progress. To receive the designation for High-Performance, a Title I school must earn academic distinctions in math and reading in the Texas accountability system. A high progress school is a Title 1 school in the Top 25 percent in annual improvement and/or a school in the top 25 percent of those demonstrating the ability to close performance gaps based on system safeguards.
Out of 8,317 public school campuses, 231 Texas schools were recognized as High-Performance schools and 363 were recognized as High-Progress schools.
