Dear Austin ISD families,
We hope that you and your family had a restful and relaxing Spring Break, but we understand that tension may be high as our children return to school in the midst of the situation in Austin involving explosives.
We want you to know we are coordinating with the Austin Police Department—along with state and federal partners—to take any and all necessary security precautions. (Click on the link above for more information.)
Akins High School is sharing this information about the district and your child’s campus with you as part of its obligations under the federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB).
Shae Routt tried to warn her new teammates at Akins. She tried to tell them that the initial girls basketball practices would involve few basketballs and a whole lot of conditioning drills. She tried, too, to describe the coaching style of her mother, Erica, a former standout at the University of Texas who arrived at Akins before this season after spending two years at Reagan.
Christina Garcia-Mata has been voted by her colleagues as Teacher of the Year. First-year Jennifer Beam also became Teacher of Promise.
AUSTIN (KXAN) — It’s the opportunity of a lifetime for music students at an Austin high school, but they’ll need help with fundraising efforts to pay for their spring trip to southern California.
The trip, expected to cost around $200,000 in all, will take Akins High School guitar, orchestra and choir students to Los Angeles. Students are paying what they can, but each will be responsible for about $1,100, director of orchestras and classical guitar Paul Crockett said.
The mock trial team competed at state on the weekend of Jan. 27th and we are so proud of how well the law students performed! All three teams made huge strides from the district competition and it showed in the courtroom. Our teams competed at the State Capitol and Travis County Courthouse. They faced teams with far more experience and fought hard. Akins earned a place on the top ten teams list with the Gold team of Aricia Amaro, Kolby Tate, Mackenzie Cords, Jorge Macedo, Eduardo Chavez, and Luis Moctezuma! Our Blue team of Mason Pounds, Josh Pounds, Devin Ritter, Marissa Hinojosa, Jalen Christian, and Jordan Franken did a fantastic job and earned four big wins against stiff competition. And lastly, our freshmen team of Amarye Tovar, Kassandra Villareal, Joaquin Rivera, Mildreth Gallegos, Basma Zanjeel, and Coral Rolon faced the toughest task of all. They faced team after team of three and four year mock trial veterans from the top programs in the state and I couldn't be happier with their results. They earned a big time win against a Highland Park team and a win against a veteran Ann Richards team that ranked 2nd in Central Texas at the district level.
Special congratulations to our seniors Aricia Amaro, Luis Moctezuma, Marissa Hinojosa, Josh Pounds, and Jorge Macedo for a fantastic end to their high school mock trial careers. We hope they'll come back and support our very young mock trial program as coaches.
Final Score- Eagles 24; Manor 17. It was a big win for the Akins Eagles on Fri., Nov. 10. After this great win, the Akins Eagles are going to the Play-Offs against Cedar Ridge High School. The game at Mustang Stadium was awesome! Congratulations!
