WELCOME TO WHITHARRAL ISD


Welcome to Whitharral Independent School District. This is the home of the Proud Panthers on the World Wide Web. Our school has an enrollment of around 180 students in grades K-12. This enrollment includes many transfer students from area towns.

Whitharral is located on U.S. Highway 385 ten miles north of Levelland in north central Hockley County.  The area surrounding Whitharral has a rich history in farming and oil production.

Whitharral ISD prides itself on its "Commitment to Excellence" and has a strong winning tradition in both academics and athletics.  The administration, faculty, and staff work hard to prepare students in all grades for a successful life beyond public school.


Please check out Whitharral's ISD Facebook page to see current events!  


WHAT'S HAPPENING:

If you were not at the Bi-District Game in Southland, you missed quite a showing by the Whitharral Panthers!!  These young men showed up to WIN and WIN they did.  The Panthers just fell short of 45ing Motley County.  The coaches and players deserve a big pat on the back.  They will go again this week Friday at Lockney @ 7:00 against Valley.  Congratulations to the Panthers for being the End Zone Team of the Week.  Check out the End Zone Team of the Week live stream by Pete Christy KCBD on Facebook.

The Varsity Girls basketball team will host Spring-Lake Earth this Tuesday at 6:30.  There are NO other games Tuesday.

Whitharral FFA represented the school very well this past weekend at the Area 1 contest in Canyon.  They were one place away from going to state in Junior Chapter Conducting.  Out of 12 freshman, 9 were on this team.  Leadership Development Events or LDE’s  are very competitive.  Whitharral went up against schools like Lubbock Cooper and Roosevelt.  To say the students and Mr. Bates worked hard this year is an understatement.  Mr. Bates and the all the students involved in these events should be very proud.  They will gear up for the Career Development Events that will kick off in the spring.

UIL results are attached.  These students have been working on these contests for about a month now and did very well.   Please see attachment.  High School UIL will start when we come back from Christmas break. 

This is a short week this week.  Monday and Tuesday are full days.  The three week grading period will be November 29.  Thanksgiving break will begin on Wednesday.  I hope everyone is able to find something to give thanks for and enjoys being with family or friends. 

I hope everyone is able to make it to Lockney this Friday to support the Panthers! 

There is a College Information tab on the Whitharral ISD Home Page.  This tab provides great information for scholarships, Career Aptitude Tests, and ACT/SAT websites.  Please take time and check this information out and check often for new updates.  Now is the time to be preparing for life after high school.
