RED OAK – While remote/distant learning during the coronavirus concerns continues, Red Oak ISD wants to celebrate, now more than ever, its amazing Red Oak ISD parents with its annual Parent of the Year awards.


“The event was canceled, but it is vital to honor these moms and dads who were nominated by their children,” stated Superintendent Brenda Sanford. “The nomination letters were touching, heart-warming, emotional, and full of love. We couldn’t be prouder of our students and their outstanding parent nominees.”


“To our parents, ROISD is an amazing district because of your caring attitude, love of your children and support of their education. We can’t do it without you!” exclaimed Sanford. “We also want to thank our students for all their amazing entries – showering their parents with love and appreciation. Finally, thanks to the staff and campus administration for facilitating the process, and Mrs. Donna Knight for spearheading this amazing award program. We celebrate each of the winners.”
