Socorro ISD Approves Boundary Adjustments, Campus Changes for 2019-2020 School Year

The Socorro Independent School District Board of Trustees approved boundary adjustments, which will go into effect January 2019 for new students and at the start of the 2019-2020 school year for current students.

“In planning for the boundary adjustments, Team SISD’s priorities are to be good stewards of all resources and to respect families in the existing school communities,” said Marivel Macias, assistant superintendent of administrative services.

“We focused on boundary adjustments that made best use of our existing campuses and adjusted for our new elementary school, while considering the needs of our students and families,” Macias said.

“Our commitment is to provide all students a high-quality education in a comfortable, safe learning environment.”

The boundary adjustments are being made in the El Dorado and Pebble Hills feeder patterns to maximize the use of existing facilities in those areas and to adjust for SISD’s newest elementary school, Cactus Trails Elementary School, which is set to open in the Pebble Hills area in July 2019.

Via a news release, Socorro ISD officials shared, “Team SISD is proactive in monitoring the growth in the district, demographics, and use of facilities in order to be poised to always provide students in all areas of the district safe and supportive learning environments.”

The boundary changes were carefully crafted taking into consideration many aspects, such as staffing, transition periods, student transportation, and potential facility renovations.

During October and early November, the district met with students, parents and community members at 10 community meetings to explain the proposed boundary adjustments and gain feedback from the stakeholders.

SISD also met with teachers, support staff, administrators, and district directors at 27 faculty and staff meetings to discuss the boundary changes.

The 2019-2020 boundary adjustments include the following changes:

  • Hurshel Antwine Elementary School will transition into a middle school for the El Dorado feeder pattern.
  • Paso del Norte K-8 School will become an elementary school for the El Dorado feeder pattern.
  • Sgt. Roberto Ituarte Elementary School will be the pre-k hub school in the El Dorado feeder pattern.
  • The new SISD elementary school, Cactus Trails Elementary School (PK-5), will serve students that currently go to James P. Butler and Chester E. Jordan elementary schools.

The changes were approved during SISD’s regular board meeting in mid- November; t learn more about the approved boundary adjustments, visit the district website.

Walmart Honors Ituarte Elementary Student as Everyday Hero for El Paso

Tony Fernandez, a fourth-grade student at Sgt. Roberto Ituarte Elementary School, has been named Walmart’s Everyday Hero in El Paso for his contributions to the community.

As a reward for his community service, a local Walmart store manager and team presented Fernandez with some $300 worth of school gear at a special school gathering Wednesday afternoon.

Fernandez won the Everyday Hero award because of his humanitarian efforts to collect plastic bottle caps for Caps on Cancer and Wounded Warrior Veterans, which are being collected at Eastlake High School. The caps go to the local VA hospital and from there they are shipped to be used to make prosthetic limbs for veterans who have lost their limbs during combat.

In addition, the caps also are being donated to projects to help children with cancer receive free chemo treatment.

“Tony stands in the lunch line every day to collect milk caps from his fellow students and also recruited the cafeteria employees to bring out a bag to assist him with his collection,” said Ivonne Martinez, his teacher at Ituarte Elementary School.

“He collects more than 100 caps a day and knows he is doing it for a special purpose while expecting nothing for himself.”
