Felix Nehal Khatri Secretary to the Principal Houston Middle School Mayor City of Sachse Parent Back Elementary School Having an updated, double-door entry to our campus provides our community a sense of security and reassurance. All visitors must come directly to the front office rather than having direct access to our school. connected The most important thing we can do is help our students succeed. [The bond] helps not only our students, but their families, and the community where they will live, work and raise a family. Providing the necessary tools and resources are essential to achieving success. I feel Back Elementary has a great entrance with multiple security system doors. I feel my child is safe there. The new security system really satisfies me as a parent, and I feel our kid is in secure hands. Charlee Nguyen Senior Gilbreath-Reed Career and Technical Center The bond gave us this building that prepares us for college. It gives us an insight of what college is going to be like. You have more freedom here, but you have to take care of yourself. Everything is about collaboration, and college is mostly about collaboration and group work. Margaret Wis Band Director Austin Academy for Excellence The beautiful new band hall has instilled great pride in the band students, parents and staff. The room is large enough to spread out to play properly. In addition, the high ceiling allows us to hear one another to work on tuning, uniformity of line and balance.
