Some Amarillo ISD elementary campuses will make slight adjustments to their bell schedules for the 2016-2017 school year. Changes are being communicated by campus principals in letters going out to parents this week and will be posted on campus websites. 
Tradewind Elementary has become the first campus in Amarillo and just the 21st in Texas, to earn the prestigious Leader in Me Lighthouse School milestone from the Franklin Covey Company. The campus now sports the official banner signifying the achievement, after a special presentation at the school on Tuesday, May 24. 
The Board honored 4 National Merit Finalists, 6 National Merit Commended Students, and 2 National Hispanic Scholars with certificates and congratulations. This is the first time in several decades that Amarillo ISD has had four National Merit Finalists. 
An educator whose work led to expanded career opportunities for students and created a pipeline for graduates to transition to their next steps is the winner of Amarillo ISD’s most notable service distinction—the Bob Ashworth Award for Outstanding Service. LeAnn Estep, Director of Career and Technical Education, accepted the award at AISD’s annual Service Recognition Banquet on May 2.  
A classroom of Amarillo ISD students who struggle to read the traditional way—with their eyes-- has placed in the top 10 in a national reading competition using their ears. English-language arts Teacher Alisha Davis’ class of scholars at Fannin Middle School, challenged with the language-based learning disability known as dyslexia, recently earned sixth place in the Great Reading Games, competing against more than 5,000 students from 300 schools.
