DeSoto ISD will celebrates Public Schools Week from February 28th – March 4th. DeSoto ISD will join students and educators throughout the State of Texas in inviting their communities to visit schools to see firsthand how students are preparing for the future.

Texas Public Schools Week was established in 1950 by the Masonic Lodges of Texas to recognize contributions made by the state’s free system of education. Each year, the event has grown. It continues as a meaningful way to showcase the many educational opportunities afforded to the more than four million students attending Texas Public Schools. 

This year marks the 163rd year of public education in Texas and the 63rd year of the annual Texas Public School Week celebration. Since 1954, school districts and communities across Texas have celebrated the success of public education during Public School Week.

Here, in DeSoto ISD, we are proud of the support of every teacher, family and staffer, board member, and the citizens of the DeSoto and Glenn Heights communities who work tirelessly and collaboratively to support the success of students in this amazing school community.
