Port O'Connor Elementary receives statewide recognition for Writing Buddy Program
Posted on 12/03/2015
Port O'Connor Elementary is basking in the glow of positive press after their Writing Buddy Program was selected to be featured in the Texas School Business magazine’s Ninth Annual Bragging Rights 2015-2016 special issue. Bragging Rights, which calls for nominations and is published every December, recognizes school districts that have implemented programs that are bettering the lives of students, schools and communities. 

Port O'Connor Elementary was one of 12 school districts in the state honored for their brag-worthy programs.

“We had close to 200 nominations this year, and all of them deserve bragging rights,” Texas School Business Editorial Director Katie Ford says. “We hope the 12 stories we singled out and chose to share will inspire other districts into action. Our mission at Texas School Business is to report on the good things happening in our public schools, and I can tell you with certainty that I’m never short on stories.”
