Welcome to Startzville Elementary

Dear Families and Friends of Startzville Elementary,
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!
Startzville Elementary is a great place for children to experience their learning and growing … with its dedicated staff, amazing students, and energetic and committed parent community.
The beginning of the year always holds such excitement and promise, and for us it is an annual rite of passage where we open our doors and share with you our hopes and dreams for the coming year. I speak for all Startzville staff when I say what a blessing and a privilege it is to serve you, the Startzville community, where anything is possible … the sky’s the limit … especially if you’re a Hawk.
I invite you anytime to become involved with us at school. Together we can make this the best year yet! Thank you families, for allowing us the privilege of teaching your children and trusting us to do so. We are committed to providing all our students with the safest and best possible learning environment where student success comes first. We feel that open and clear communication between school and home is important to the success of our educational program. Startzville Elementary parents and families are our partners in the important job of educating the children of this community. My door is always open for any comments or questions you may have.

American Legion Award Honors Students for Character, Citizenship

Correction: The American Legion honorees for Memorial Early College High School were reported incorrectly. Victor Hernandez and Josephine Tesauro received the top awards. For almost a century, the American Legion has been honoring students who exemplify the six qualities that define character with its School Award Medal Program. Several Comal ISD campuses participate in this tradition by nominating students for this award.
