Azle ISD Core Beliefs
1. Our core business is engaging students in authentic learning.
Parker County gave 276 kids and150 adults flu shots last week. Plus, they gave another 150 or so in October. Great turnout!
Parker County will be coming back on Dec 15th to administer the flu shots again. They will be at Azle High School from 3:00 – 6:00 pm. Kids 18 and under are free. Adults will be $10. They recommend that kids under 8 should have 2 doses if they didn’t get type A (swine Flu) vaccine last year.
Last Friday students from FCCLA, Mr. Burnett’s Ag class, Ms. Smith’s Health Science class and several NHS members volunteered all day at Azle’s newest habitat home. This was the second trip for Azle High School students. All of the students enjoyed the experience immensely. Jobs for the day included painting and applying fascia and soffit to the home and nailing decking to the rafters. Students again made a very positive impression on the Habitat crew with their work ethic and manners. Students were accompanied by Mrs. Schlueter and Mr. Burnett. (L-R) Sam Henderson, Josh Townsend
As many of you know, Mr. Ivey will be retiring in January and will be dearly missed. His leaving will create a void that we will struggle to fill. The newsletter is a vital tool used to communicate with the employees, parents and community members of Azle ISD. It will be necessary to change the format of the newsletter so that it is easier to build and distribute.

1. Articles for the district newsletter should positively promote the students, employees and programs of the district.
