Driggers Elementary School

 

Rita Kay Driggers Elementary school opened it's doors to 600+ students on August 27, 2007. The school was designed by Garza/Bomberger and Associates and built by Browning Construction at a cost of $15,423,836. It was the district's 58th elementary school. Mary Helen Cover was the first principal of Driggers and Elizabeth Hernandez was her vice principal. Both are still doing a wonderful job of leading the school. Thanks to their leadership and the hard work of the teachers and students during the 2007-2008 school year, Driggers received Recognized status from the Texas Education Agency based on their TAKS scores. Driggers is a Title I and Bilingual campus.

The Driggers Dedication Ceremony took place on October 13, 2007. This wonderful event was led by our fabulous music teacher, Wendy Morrissey-West who wrote the script, our school song, and other songs for the presentation. Donna Zoller, our very talented art teacher designed and created the sets for the show as well as directed, gathered, and displayed student art work around the school. You can see the video of this fantastic collaborative production here.

Mission Statement:
Rita Kay Driggers  Elementary School has students, parents, teachers, and administrators who provide a stimulating environment that promotes academic excellence by developing independent learners who are responsible members of the school community.

Our Goal:
In every school, there is one goal parents and staff naturally share: that of providing a quality educational program. The parents have invested in the school their most valuable possession: their children. If a school program is to be successful, it must have the support of the community of which it is a part. Therefore, it is important that we form a partnership.
