I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is A.J. Knight and I joined the Tiger Team earlier this school year as the Director of the Excellence Center for Enhanced Learning (ExCEL). It has been a whirlwind of excitement and new beginnings as we prepare for the opening of this incredible facility. Construction of the ExCEL is quickly nearing completion, and we could not be more excited for the opportunities to come!
As you know, ExCEL will offer a variety of first class athletic and academic programs for our students and community. These programs, initially serving students in second through eighth grades, will begin in the summer and may include but are not limited to: robotics, fine arts, basketball, volleyball, indoor soccer, and arena football. Additionally, the fitness center for senior citizens and Terrell ISD staff is scheduled to open this Spring.
Registration for our academic and athletic programs is scheduled to open Monday, March 19, so we encourage you to stay connected with us on Facebook and subscribe to our TISD E-Newsletter for more information. We are also gearing up for the launch of the ExCEL website, where you will have access to all of the necessary details regarding academic and athletic programing, online registration, event calendars, coaching and volunteering opportunities, and much more.
I hope you all have a wonderful second semester, and I look forward to meeting you at the ExCEL!
Terrell ISD ExCEL Director
