Katy ISD Reaches Historical Goal of Enrolling its 80,000 Student!!Katy ISD Reaches Historical Goal of Enrolling its 80,000 Student!!2018-11-09T21:25:28Z<div class="ExternalClass5A748F759DCB42329829082C02EE7D43"><p><span style="text-align:justify;">Expecting to end the year with an enrollment of 80,000 students, or fairly close to it, Katy Independent School District has reached this monumental milestone two months prior to the end of 2018.  Davidson Elementary third-grader Christopher Morcos was the lucky student.  He never expected his first week of school to be such an unforgettable experience.  Christopher received a warm welcome by Superintendent Lance Hindt and other district officials.  He was also recognized with several Century of Legacy gifts to celebrate the meaningful occasion.  The celebration comes precisely when Katy ISD is commemorating 100 years of educational excellence. </span><br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">"We are very excited about the continued growth here in Katy ISD.  It is always great to welcome students and families to the proud traditions and exciting future here in Katy ISD," said Dr. Vonda Washington, assistant superintendent for school leadership and support.  "Gaining our 80,000 student while celebrating a legacy of 100 years dedicated to learning is remarkable," added Washington. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Though Christopher was born in America this will be his first time attending a school in the United States.  Just this week, the Morcos family moved from Egypt to Katy, Texas. For them, finding a good school home for their son was a top priority.  "I did my research and everyone recommended Katy ISD as the best school district," said Peter Morcos, Christopher's father.  "We decided to move into Katy and look for a house in this area so that we are able to go to a Katy ISD school," added Morcos.   </p><p style="text-align:justify;">It's been no secret that families are moving west of Houston into what was known as a small suburb.  Communities zoned to the district have been flourishing at outstanding rates making Katy ISD one of the fastest growing school district, not just in Texas, but in the nation.  The quality of education offered in Katy ISD classrooms has attracted families from all parts of the world to what is now being called a destination school district.  </p><p style="text-align:justify;"><a href="https://youtu.be/hy4wlNcTpIg" title="Katy ISD Reaches Historical Milestone of Enrolling 80,000 Students!"><img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/110918_KDE_80000%20Student%20in%20Katy%20ISD.jpg" alt="110918_KDE_80000 Student in Katy ISD.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:393px;" /></a><br></p><p style="text-align:justify;"><a href="https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ugakv368u3txdq2/AAD8v6dOSjy4DCep3cH0TjJ4a?dl=0">Photo gallery of 80,000 student celebration for newscasts and publications.</a><br></p><p><br></p></div>
