Donate $10 for the Oklahoma Tornado Victims
NEISD trustees were hit with yet another plea to reinstate bus service for students within walking distance of Bush Middle School, this time by the mother of a 12-year-old girl recently hit by a car while walking home.
Diane Milner said her daughter Darian was in the protected crosswalk at the intersection of Knights Cross and Evans Road on Sept. 27 when a car, making a right turn, knocked her to the ground. Darian was then run over by the car’s tire, but is expected to recover from her injuries.
Andrea Henry of Hardy Oak Elementary has been voted as Stone Oak Info’s Feature Teacher for the fall semester. All the Reagan cluster schools, nine in total, participate in this regular event designed to highlight the great work of our area teachers. For the last few weeks, students, parents and administrators have been submitting their votes for the person they believe should be honored and recognized.
By noon nearly 300 people had perused the many items for sale at Saturday’s Market Days and Wellness Fair, and there was still two hours to go. Despite this being the first fair hosted by Hardy Oak Elementary School the outpouring of community support had already convinced organizers the event was a definite hit.
“So far it’s been very successful,” said fair organizer Kelley Ebin. “Everyone’s very excited.”
A decision on where Johnson’s enrollment boundaries will lie and continued discussion of the cancelled Bush Middle School bus route are on tonight’s NEISD board meeting agenda.

Growing up in St. Louis, Missouri, Lady Bird Johnson High School Principal, Kris Wickerham, did not imagine himself as a school administrator.
NEISD has decided not to hold a third public meeting to discuss attendance boundaries for the future “Lady Bird” Johnson High school. The meeting had been tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 7, in case the district felt additional public input was needed. Two community forums were held last month to reveal proposals and hear concerns by parents of Reagan High School students, some of which will transfer to the new school east of U.S. 281 near Stone Oak Parkway as early as the 2008-09 school year.
Christmas will come early for those lucky enough to land one of the many hot items up for bid at the 9th Annual Reagan Diamondbacker All Sports Gala. Scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 27, the fund-raising event will include over 300 silent auction items ranging from furniture, restaurant vouchers and Spurs tickets to spa packages, a flat screen television and satellite radio.
Reagan High Schoo Theatre
The curtain will go up tonight at Reagan High School with the first of four performances of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Students have been rehearsing the dark tragedy for roughly six weeks now and have created a riveting play that will leave audiences mesmerized by the talents of these bright, young stars.
This past Sunday, while most of the community still slept, Reagan High School student Kevin Tyburski was already well into a 60-mile bike ride in support of the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF).
“It was a hard 60 miles,” the 16-year-old says of the hilly Ride for the Roses race held 20 miles outside of Austin in Dripping Springs. Scheduled in conjunction with Armstrong’s Livestrong challenge, the Ride for the Roses is a special event open to those who meet certain fundraising goals. A family friend asked Tyburski, who has also participated in the MS 150 and the Tour de Cure, to join him in the tandem ride.
