It's been a while since our last eNews went out.

In the past we have tried to gather as much local news as possible as possible and include it one big eNewsletter. The idea being to limit the number of emails you receive. The problem with this approach, is that often times the news gets old or scheduling gets delayed or canceled all together.

So ... we're going to try a new approach beginning with this new year.
Your Palestine eNews may be a little smaller and come to your email boxes a little more often. The content may change a little too.

As always, we look forward to your comments.

Your wait for reliable Verizon-Wireless service in the Palestine area may be almost over. Unofficially, the delay in bringing the new tower on-line has been due to a backlog in the production of the control centers for each new location. Completion of the local tower is said to be scheduled for this month. Keep your fingers crossed, but you may not want to hold your breath - just yet!


Meeting This Thursday

To Parents, Students, and Community Members of the Palestine School District:

The Palestine School Board will host an informational school board meeting on January 17, 2013. This meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the Palestine Grade School Gym. The meeting will provide insight about the current financial situation of the Palestine School District. The Palestine School District has always been encouraged by the support the school receives from the community.

Yours in Education,
Joe Sornberger

Palestine School District
