Marfa ISD School Board members and administration staff are spending the weekend working through Lone Star Governance (LSG). LSG is a continuous-improvement model for governing teams—boards in collaboration with their superintendents—who choose to focus intensely on only one primary objective: improving student outcomes. Great teamwork as they continue to focus on our Shorthorns! Shorthorn Proud! 💜

Marfa Cheer is at camp this week learning new chants, cheers, and stunts! The highest daily honor at camp is to win the BANANA, an award given at the end of each day of camp to only one squad. Marfa Varsity and JH Cheer squads share the award on the second day of UCA camp 2022. The JH team also won a BLUE ribbon for their work on cheer skills. And JH Cheerleaders do a pyramid for the first time. Very exciting! Way to go Purple and White! 💜🤍💜
