Principal's Message

Greetings Parents and Students,

 Welcome back and hope your Holidays were filled with joy and happiness. We are now at the halfway point of the school year! Undoubtedly, time flies when we strive to be our very best.
From our Volleyball team to our Robotics and Technology Clubs, our Chess Club, Library Club, Bully Busters and all our UIL Teams, there have been many accomplishments and many trophies and medals have been earned.
 As principal of J. A. Kawas Elementary, I would like to say I am very proud of our students and our campus. Furthermore, I would like to extend my sincerest appreciation and thanks to our students, parents, teachers, staff and administrators, for all the effort and dedication you’ve displayed during this half of the year.

 As with sports, we’re starting the second half of this game. Our teachers have a huddled and come up with a winning strategy for the second half. The field is in front of us and we remember what Football Legend Jerry Rice once said: “Today I will do what others won’t, so tomorrow I can accomplish what others CAN'T".

 Let’s take on this second half with renewed drive and determination. Let’s win this second half too.
