My mother and I were at IHOP this morning and there was a group of students dressed up so I assumed they were high school students going to UIL. You could have knocked both of us over with a feather when we found out they were from Polk Middle School. They were so well behaved and so well mannered. As a former middle school teacher and a C-FBISD Ambassador it made me proud. Too often principals get complaints of kids so I wanted to make sure you got this compliment loud and clear! - Peggi Babick, C-FBISD Community Ambassador
Great to walk into a school with such a pleasant atmosphere! Go Panthers!
