CITY OF KATY (Covering Katy News) - The hard work of many Katy Independent School District teachers is now etched on commemorative bricks found at Katy's Heritage Park on George Bush Drive. The annual brick unveiling event, held Tuesday night, honored the school district's teachers of the year from the 2018-19 school year.
There are now 67 additional campus teachers with their names on bricks on the walkway at Katy's Heritage Park. Their bricks were added to the bricks with names from previous years.
“Behind every successful student is a teacher who has spent countless hours, not just teaching, but counseling and guiding them along the way,” said Superintendent Dr. Ken Gregorski. “Our teachers bring joy and academic knowledge to our students every day, and these bricks are only a small token of appreciation for everything they do,” added Gregorski.
“It is our roots of outstanding teachers that continue to push the limits of creativity and innovation in every single Katy ISD classroom,” Board of Trustees President, Courtney Doyle, said. “I am thrilled to be part of this celebration which highlights the enduring mark each of you have made in our schools, district and community,” added Doyle.
Live music was provided by the Cinco Ranch High School Bravo Show Choir.
Katy ISD would like to thank Venus Construction (founding sponsor), Modern Pest Control and Katy Heritage Society for their sponsorship and support to recognize educators, and Cinco Ranch High School’s Bravo Show Choir for their performance at this year’s event.
