Weekend plans?

Where have you traveled? What places do you want to go but haven't yet?

What's the unhealthies food item in your house right now? The healthiest?

What's for lunch? Dinner?

n>Lol, not large?  I think about 14,000 students. That is large IMO.</s

My school district has over 45,000 kids so I would consder 14,000 to be fairly smalll. 

Yes, I understand many would. We have 127 school districts where I live. They have them structured differently than in other states.

That is large, esp when compared to smaller towns that are not even a fourth of that. 

It is large when there are 127 districts in a small area, IMO.

The school district my kids attended before moving here, also in Texas has about 1000.

I graduated with 1,600 other people and that was in the same district my kids go to now.

That seems crazy to me!   My entire district, K-12, had only about 700 students.      The district my kdis are in now has about 4500.  The Girl's graduating class is about 340.

Yeah it was a lot and not the biggest ever that they had. At that time, we were separated by K-6, 7-8, 9-10 and 11-12. Now it is K-5, 6-8, 9-12. 2 more schools were built since I went there. An extra middle school and an extra high school.

Oklahoma City - the 2nd largest district in the state - has 5 high schools, 3 alternative centers, 5 jr highs, 7 middles, and 54 elementaries.    With a total of about 43,000 students.

Tulsa Public Schools has 11 high schools,  14 middles, and 54 elementaries.    With about 42,000 students.  Then they ahve a myriad of independent districts and suburb districts, such as Tulsa Union, Broken Arrow, etc.   Its crazy.

We are in the same sports/competitive extracurricular class as the OKC and Tulsa-area schools, and we just can't compete. We are, by a large margin, the smallest 6A school in the state. Most of the schools are double our size, but we have to compete against them.  Makes it really tough.

Our own 2 high schools in the same district compete, as well as other schools in other districts around us.

There are 32 schools in our class - from all over the state technically, but really only in 5-6 cities, with about 25 of those being spread between the OKC and Tulsa metros.
