Italy Homecoming Alumni Recognition Information
ITALY HS & JHS PHOTO PASS Italy Yearbook staff is starting a new fundraiser campaign. We are selling different option photo passes of your students. Yearbook students spend many hours taking photos and editing them to make the perfect action and candid photographs. After much research and consideration we decided to sell our photos to help us raise funds for events, trips and new equipment. Attached is the different photo packages and order form to sign up. We will be collecting payments and forms during the normal school day and during games when I have staff available. If you have any questions please contact Mr. Glover at email@example.com Link to Italy HS JHS Photo Pass https://5il.co/24nh8

Friday Night Lights in Italy, watching our Gladiator Football Team, is an exciting and fun family-friendly event to show our Italy pride and support our students. Safety and security is of utmost importance not only in our schools but also at all our extracurricular events. For all home football games, all spectators are being asked to remain behind the fence that separates the bleachers/concessions from the track and the field at all times. Spectators will not be allowed on the track or the field before, during or after the game. Staff working the game will be wearing lanyards with access tags in order to fulfill their responsibilities and provide support for students, spectators and guests. At all times, please make sure the only thing our players and fellow spectators hear from us is cheering on our students. Please refrain from heckling, yelling or using inappropriate language towards our coaches and staff or in front of families, students and small children. Let’s keep this a family-friendly event. At the conclusion of the football game, players will have a few minutes to meet their families at the fence, however, players will remain on the track and families will remain behind the fence. We look forward to seeing everyone at the game! Have fun cheering on our students and spending time with your family and friends! Go Italy Gladiators!
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) released a new Family Portal on the Texas Assessment website in January 2023. The Family Portal https://www.texasassessment.gov/ makes it easy for parents and guardians to access their child’s State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) results. It also shows each test question and how the student responded, as well as personalized resources to support learning at home. When you go the the district website and log-in to the Parent Portal, the Texas Assessments Link is on the lower left side of the student summary page, which is the same location that you have accessed before during registration and also to review report cards and progress reports.
Italy ISD welcomes our new staff members to the district! We are thrilled they chose our district to make a difference for our kids!!!
Italy JH/HS Staff are excited and ready to welcome students back to campus for a great 2023-2024 school year! School hours this year are 7:35-4:05. See you on Thursday!
