A huge thank you to our Akins Eagle parents and families, and also to our community partners for making our family resources event a success.
It was my pleasure getting to know each of you and learn how you help strengthen our community.
The year is now in full swing and your PTSA has been hard at work helping students, teachers, and the community. You may have met a PTSA member at Chalk the Walk or Back to School Night, attended a meeting on campus or via Zoom, or seen our ad in the football program. (Click above)

Good morning Eagle Family,
On the Weekend of May 8th, our student athletes did a great job shining a positive light on our school. Thank you to all the student groups (Diamonds, Cheer, Volleyball, Girls/Boys Basketball, Football, Track, Baseball, Wrestling) and coaches who came out on Saturday morning to help with the Dia de los Ninos event at Mendez Middle School. They all gave up their Saturday Morning to serve our community and make a difference in the lives of a lot of people. We are beyond proud of all of them.
In addition, track athlete Trystin Brown competed in the 110H at the UIL State Track meet at The University of Texas on Saturday evening. He became the first athlete in school history to compete in the State Meet and represented Akins very well. Trystin will end his track career at Akins with numerous records and finished in the Top 9 in the state of Texas against all other 6A competitors. We are so proud of all his accomplishments.
Starting at 6pm, log in to see the Virtual Eagle Trustee Awards for 2020-2021. We are so proud of all the students receiving their awards after a tough school year. Congratulations!
