The Screamin Eagle Football Team defeated the Grady Wildcats and there were many alumni that attended.  Thank you goes out the Booster Club for decorating the town, the City of O'Donnell for holding an outstanding Cotton Festival and Mrs. Ash for planning and running a great Alumni Banquet.  It takes a lot to get the Homecoming Weekend rolling but this year was a good one!  Also, Congratulation to Katie Hernandez for being crowned Homecoming Queen!

Congratulations to Lincoln Graham! He won a scholarship for winning Reserve Breed Simmental at the Heart O'Texas Fair!  He is only in 5th grade and already making funds to pay for college!!

Welcome O'Donnell ISD Community to the OISD Superintendent Webpage!

It has been a blessing to serve the OISD students and community for the past nine years.  Before coming to O'Donnell ISD, I served as an English teacher and counselor at Irion County ISD and then as a counselor, principal and federal programs director at Carlisle ISD. I earned a bachelor's degree from Lubbock Christian University, masters from Angelo State University and doctorate from Stephen F Austin State University.   I was raised in West Texas and I consider the O'Donnell area home.  It is such a pleasure to work with a faculty and staff that cares daily for students in a kind and compassionate way.  I am honored to be a part of the O'Donnell Eagle family.  

The Core Values of our District reflect the pride and respect the entire community holds for the students and all stakeholders in O'Donnell. 

1.  Students First - Decisions are made in the best interest of the students. 

2. Integrity - We are kind, respectful and honest. 

3. High Expectations - All students and staff are expected to challenge and exceed expectations, never lowering them. 

4. Strong Work Ethic - We value, recognize and exhibit a strong work ethic centered on care of the community and students.  

The school board, administrators, faculty and staff welcomes you to our school!
