"Texas Public Schools Week is a celebration where everyone can participate," Jefferies said.  “This observance gives us a chance to shine a light on our students and their outstanding achievements. We invite everyone into our schools so they can see how we are preparing students to meet the challenges of the future."

Texas Public Schools Week was established in 1950 by the Masonic Lodges of Texas to recognize contributions made by the state's free system of education.  The Texas School Public Relations Association has promoted Texas Public Schools Week for over 20 years.
