  • Dear Lion Friends,

    The New Boston Schools will be closed on Friday, February 17, in order to clean our campuses. We have experienced a sharp increase in absences among students and staff in recent days.

    We are taking this preventive action in order to reduce the spread of germs as much as possible and protect the health and welfare of our students and staff.

    Monday, February 20, is a student holiday, and staff will attend professional development as scheduled. All staff will attend a make-up day to satisfy state attendance requirements. The district will announce the date of the staff make-up day as soon as it is determined.

    All extracurricular events will continue as scheduled.

    Thank you for working with us as we try to ensure the well-being of our children and our employees.

  •  Kayla Ratcliff receives student of the month

    New Boston, Texas – Texas Farm Credit recently recognized 20 students in their AgStudent of the Month program. 

    Texas Farm Credit has a mission to support agriculture and rural communities today and tomorrow. The customer-owned cooperative proudly offers two programs that recognize high school seniors who excel in the classroom and in their FFA chapters and 4-H clubs. 

    Each year Texas Farm Credit presents $2,000 postsecondary scholarships to five future ag leaders who live in Texas Farm Credit's 100-county territory. The scholarship program is named in honor of the late Marsha Pyle Martin, a native of Paris, Texas, who was board chairman and chief executive officer of the Farm Credit Administration from 1994 to 2000. In addition, every Texas Farm Credit branch recognizes one outstanding student per month from January to April of the school year. Winners receive $100 Visa gift cards and advance to the selection process for the Marsha Martin Scholarship program.

    For the month of February, the Texas Farm Credit Clarksville branch is pleased to announce their AgStudent of the Month, Kayla Ratcliff who was presented with a certificate and gift card by Branch Manager Jay Kidwell.
