Dear Blackshear Elementary School Families,

    We want to welcome you back to another school year.  We are excited to work with you and your child.  It is our mission to help every child grow in his academic abilities and to develop an awareness of college and career. We are determined to deliver an excellent and well-planned curriculum, and create a school where safety, respect, accountability, support and excellence are highly evident!


    Blackshear is an IMPROVEMENT REQUIRED school for the fourth year.

    What does that mean?  Students in our 4th and 5th grade classes must make progress in Reading and Math.  If they do not, the school will undergo major changes, such as Ector, Zavala and Travis.  You will see many changes this year that are in place to help achieve our goal of progress!  Please support us in our endeavor to SUCCESS!
