Crockett High School Becomes A Legacy of Giving School
The mission of A Legacy of Giving is to empower children through philanthropy education and youth philanthropy programs to become more engaged in improving their communities and world.

We believe empowering children through philanthropy education to become more engaged in improving their communities and world will grow a generation of givers. If we help children learn to be compassionate at their earliest ages, they will continue to be engaged in their communities and offer their gifts of time, talent and treasure as adults.

Supported by community leaders donating their time, talent and treasure, A Legacy of Giving is emerging as a critical piece of school curriculum.

Today, A Legacy of Giving provides philanthropy education, service learning and civic engagement in a school-based setting in both public and private schools in Central Texas with TEKS-compliant curricula (i.e. curricula meeting or exceeding all state and local public school standards).

In the future, A Legacy of Giving will expand its youth philanthropy program to engage children and their families in philanthropy through opportunities beyond classroom-based learning.

Attendance Rules and Grading Policy
Based on House Bill 5, students must maintain a 90% attendance rate in each of their classes for the year in order to receive credit. Students with 75%-89% attendance in classes must meet with the attendance committee in order to determine if the missed time can be made up via Twilight or Saturday School. Therefore, Community Service Hours will no longer be accepted.

If attendance drops below 75%, then the student can not receive credit and must repeat the course. Click on this news story for details.

ATTENTION CLASS OF 2018: Cougar Cub Camp August 5th and 6th
Don't miss this FUN and EXCITING opportunity to see old friends, meet new ones, and learn about high school!

Crockett High School is a caring community of students, families, and staff that promotes success for all. The first opportunity to begin the transition to high school is the Crockett Cougar Cub Camp, August 5&6, 2014. The camp is for students to develop the foundation that will allow them to become successful ninth grade students and high school graduates. Each day will begin with registration and greetings at 9:00 a.m. and will end by 12:00 p.m. We have planned a series of fun and organized activities intended to help students develop self-esteem, teambuilding, problem-solving, communication, and social skills. At the same time, students will be meeting fellow classmates, teachers, counselors, principals, etc. and becoming familiar with the layout of the school as a whole. Parents are important members of the Crockett team. We encourage you to transition into the role of high school parents by attending the Parent Breakfast on Wednesday August 6th at 9:30 AM.
