In 1931, Katy ISD only had two school buses. Today it has over 650 buses which transport 51,000 students each day.</span><br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">"Our bus drivers are amazing people!" said Chief Operations Officer Lee Crews. "They are constantly building positive relationships with students and creating a legacy of outstanding service to our students, staff and district."</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Katy ISD is honored to dedicate its three transportation centers after bus drivers who have left remarkable legacies.  Anna Baker, Cyndy Self and Lester Floyd Reinecker II touched the hearts of many, especially the students they transported every day.  With this ceremony, Katy ISD highlights the values of these great individuals for generations to come.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>What:<br></strong>Katy ISD Board of Trustees and Superintendent Lance Hindt invite you to the dedication ceremony of the West, South & East Transportation Centers.  Part of the dedication ceremony will include a performance by a Katy High School 2009 Alumni.  A special presentation will be delivered by Congressman John Culbertson, Representative John Zerwas and Mayor Pro Tem Duran C.

Rededication of Memorial Parkway Junior HighRededication of Memorial Parkway Junior High2018-02-19T21:39:45Z<div class="ExternalClass90FEE2E081314E8E8D2D58D01F662688"><p>​It was one of those moments. You had to see it to believe it!  Many guests attending the rededication ceremony of Katy Independent School District's Memorial Parkway Junior High (MPJH) were amazed to see the transformation of the 1982 school building. </p><p>The campus, which was part of the 2014 voter-approved bond package, no longer resembles the original school building.  Now the MPJH students will continue to soar like eagles after their school underwent a comprehensive renovation which added a variety of upgraded features.  The first thing one notices as they arrive to MPJH is the prominent curbside appeal that includes a safe student drop-off and pick-up location.  Inside the school, classroom functionality reflects a focused environment for students with added collaborative spaces.</p><p>"We are grateful to the Katy ISD community for the comprehensive renovation of our building, and we hope it is a place they are proud to call "their school" for many years to come," says Principal Emily Craig. </p><p>"Remodeling can change and update appearances but this project is more than that. Our school has been transformed," added Craig.</p><p>One of the goals of the school administration during the renovation was to have students and staff involved in the new design.  MPJH students who were part of the Concepts of Engineering program (along with assistance from their Sister School MCJH) teamed up with architects to repurpose the large wooden gym bleachers, which can now be seen along the hallways of the refurbished school.  </p><p>The rededication ceremony was a success with special performances by the MPJH Orchestra, choir and band.  Kala Grzesek was also announced as the MPJH Teacher of the Year.</p><p>Missed the event?  <a href="https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1737829102903838.1073742090.113148448705253&type=1&l=48f70bc218">View pictures of the MPJH Rededication Ceremony</a>. </p></div>

"They are building upon the values and beliefs that our educational excellence was founded on."</p><p>          Both Bob and Felice have brought learning to life.  In 1982, they moved to Katy, Texas where Bob settled in as the head band director for Katy High School.  He later served as the fine arts department chair and was then promoted to executive director of fine arts for Katy ISD in 2000.  Felice began her career in Katy ISD as a kindergarten teacher at Williamsburg Settlement, now Winborn Elementary.  She spent the remainder of her career teaching kindergarten and first grade at Katy Elementary and was selected as the Campus Teacher of the Year in 1997. The Bryant family has made Katy their home and it is where they raised all three of their children.  They continue to be a huge part of the Bryant school community and can be found volunteering, as well as reading stories to students at the campus. </p><p>          "Today, 35 years later, we stand before you very overwhelmed and deeply humbled to be the namesakes of this amazing and remarkable school," said Felice Bryant. "With every high-five, every fist pump, every hug and smile, our hearts are overflowing with love," added Bob Bryant.      </p><p>          During the dedication ceremony, attendees enjoyed a special performance by the BES Singing Bengals.  Additionally, special presentations were made by the office of Senator Lois W. Kolkhorst, Representative John Zerwas and Representative Mike Schofield. </p><p>          Click <a href="https://www.dropbox.com/sh/vsdwlp37sk06n5j/AAAwzovrpjEs17h-DpH0RWIma?dl=0">here</a> to see photos of the dedication ceremony.  </p></div>
