Message from the Superintendent November 13, 2017

Congratulations to the Tidehaven Tiger varsity football team for completing a spectacular “undefeated” regular season.  Each game was exciting to watch.  Highlights include beating East Bernard for the first time since 1995; then beating district rivals Boling, Schulenburg, Brazos, Danbury and Bloomington.  While I am very excited about the undefeated season, I am equally excited to see the growth in leadership from these young men.  Over and over again, I’ve witnessed first-hand so many of our athletes step up and aspire to better decision making.  This will do them well in real-life.  Now on to the playoffs.  Roll TIDE!  Thank you to Coach Lucio and his great coaching staff.

One Act Play is just completing their fall musical production “Into the Woods”, a joint venture production with the OAP program of Van Vleck ISD.  These students are friends and have supported each other over the years.  They cheer for each other at competitions and performances and have come together for this production.  The students have coined a name for their combined group and they call themselves “VanHaven”, an interesting twist on the old rock and roll band VanHalen.  OAP students are so creative.  

The Ag/FFA students have received their pigs for the spring shows in Houston, San Antonio and the Matagorda County Show.  I always enjoy meeting the kids and having them show me their pig projects.  I always ask them what they have chosen for a name for their pig.  This year, I’ve already met Oreo and Wilbur.  I’m looking forward to meeting all the other pig projects.

Can you believe we are one single Friday away from Thanksgiving?  The year has just flown by so quickly.  Everyone enjoy Thanksgiving with your family, have lots to eat, make memories and always wear your seatbelt when traveling to Grandpa and Grandma’s house.

The new HS and JH choirs will perform with the band students at the annual Christmas concert on Thursday, December 7th.  Everyone come out, support the kids and get a start on the Christmas spirit.

For the kids,

Andrew Seigrist
