Pinwheels Along the Front of School
April is National Child Abuse Prevention month.
The pinwheel is the national symbol for the great childhoods all children deserve because our children are our future.
Why Pinwheels for Prevention?
In 2008, Prevent Child Abuse America introduced the pinwheel as the new national symbol for child abuse prevention through Pinwheels for Prevention®. What our research showed, and what our experiences since then have borne out, is that people respond to the pinwheel. By its very nature, the pinwheel connotes whimsy and childlike notions. In essence, it has come to serve as the physical embodiment, or reminder, of the great childhoods we want for all children.

Dr. Heskett Hired as New Covington ISD Superintendent
Covington ISD trustees hired Valley View High School Principal, Dr. Chris M. Heskett, as the District's new superintendent during a regularly scheduled monthly board meeting on Monday, April 10, 2017. Dr. Heskett's two year employment contract begins July 1, 2017. He will spend some time in June working with the current Superintendent, Diane Innis, in order to facilitate a smooth transition. Mrs. Innis is fully retiring after serving as the Covington ISD's superintendent for the past 13 years with her last day of employment being June 30, 2017.
Dr. Heskett has 22 years of experience in education with the last nine years serving as the high School principal at Valley View ISD. He has administrative experience at elementary and middle school levels as well. Considering himself a lifelong learner, he earned his Ed.D at Lamar University in 2016, a master's degree in education from Midwestern State University in 2001, and obtained his undergraduate degree in Kinesiology from Midwestern State University in 1991.
Dr. Heskett and his wife, Keri, will be joining the Covington community in June along with their 7th grade daughter, Peyton. They also have an older daughter, Madison, who will be graduating from Valley View High School this year and will attend the University of North Texas in Denton in the fall.
The Heskett family looks forward to becoming a part of the Covington community!

On April 18, 1906, the town of Covington held an election to determine if the town should incorporate for "free school purposes". Sixty-five votes were cast for incorporation and 15 votes were cast in opposition. Hill County Judge N.J. Smith then declared Covington to be "duly incorporate for free school purposes," the name of the incorporation being "Covington Independent School District."
