Crosby ISD Celebrates Community

By Brett Birkinbine

Crosby ISD is ready to start the new school year after a weekend full of community engagement celebrating the 2021 Barrett Station homecoming.

Crosby ISD teachers, school leaders and administrators passed out candy and flyers about the upcoming school year during Saturday’s community parade. Superintendent Paula Patterson then delivered the keynote address to Little Sisters Empowerment, a new non-profit organization created to serve girls in the East Harris County area.

Later in the day, Crosby ISD leaders, including Superintendent Patterson and Crosby High School head football coach Jerry Prieto, had to tackle a feast. They were judges for the Barrett Station Homecoming Cook Off. They sampled dozens of dishes in each round – from succulent ribs to mouthwatering brisket. There were also rounds for best chicken and best open dish. In the end, the “Dirty Bay” team won best overall and took home this year’s trophy.

To cap off the Saturday night celebrations, several district leaders attended the Crosby High School Alumni Series 2021 finale at the Crosby Theatre. The stars of the show included CHS alumni from as far back as 2001 and as far away as New York City and Washington State. They performed the laugh-out-loud play “Musical Comedy Murders of 1940.” Ticket sales went to benefit scholarships for current and future Crosby High School students.

In the coming weeks, Crosby ISD will be celebrating the 2021-2022 school year with several events planned, including a New Educator Orientation later this month. The first day of class for students is August 12.
