The MISD Minute – May 28, 2021

2020-2021 school year comes to a close

Congratulations! We made it through one of the most challenging school years in recent history. From a pandemic, to a variety of weather events, you were determined to tackle unprecedented adversity while remaining focused in our commitment to serving Montgomery ISD students and families with excellence and grace. I could not be more proud of our MISD family for your successes during this school year!

Speaking of year-end celebrations, this week we saluted the class of 2021 as 363 graduates from Montgomery HS and 321 graduates from Lake Creek HS walked across the stage at the MISD Athletic Stadium. It was an honor to hand each of them a diploma and cheer them on as they prepared to embark on the next exciting chapter of their lives. We were pleased to have been able to host outdoor ceremonies for our graduates without restricting attendance. Thank you to all who attended the graduation ceremonies to celebrate and bid farewell to our class of 2021.

If you were unable to attend the ceremony in person, or would simply like to relive the excitement, both ceremonies can be viewed on the MISD YouTube channel.

Congratulations, graduates! We’re very proud of you.

Sincerely,

Dr. Heath Morrison

A conversation with Dr. Heath Morrison – Part IV

Dr. Steven Meeker and I recorded the fourth and final episode of the inaugural season of Conversations with Dr. Heath Morrison. We had a great time chatting about the past school year while looking ahead at all the exciting things to come. I enjoyed filmed three episodes with Dr. Meeker throughout this year and look forward to continuing this series into the 2021-22 school year.

You can watch the full episode of Part IV here.

The MISD Minute is going on Summer Break

As we move into the Summer, The MISD Minute will also go on break. We will continue to share the latest district news through the MISD Premier blog, Facebook and Twitter pages. Please continue to visit those outlets for updates. We will resume The MISD Minute weekly message just ahead of the 2021-2022 school year kickoff. In the meantime, we sincerely hope you have a wonderful break filled with great memories.

Have a safe and restful summer. We’ll see you in August!
