A Message from Dr. A'Lann Truelock



Dear Hondo ISD Community, Parents, Students, and Staff:

Well, it’s that time again, Folks, my very favorite time of the year! I can’t wait to share with you just a few of the new things in store for us all as the new school year unfolds.

We have had a busy summer, finishing the construction of the new Administration Buildings for Meyer Elementary and McDowell Middle School, the new Science wing at McDowell, and the new Pre-K wing at Meyer. Construction is far from over, though, and the High School should see a new Student Activities Center and the Career and Technology building come online in January of 2018.  

Although attrition was quite low on most campuses, this year we are welcoming several new people as well, especially in the coaching staff. These new people and places, however, do not diminish the history and tradition we’ve come to admire and respect from HISD. The motto for our district chosen by our Leadership Team this year is “An Honored Past, Built to Last.” The message there is pride in our long history, and confidence that the foundations we are currently laying will be there to support and sustain the generations of Hondo Owls that come after we are long gone. We know we are fortunate to be here, in God’s Country, and we are blessed this year to be here to serve your students, in every classroom, every day.
