Free Breakfast & Lunch for All Students Effective Immediately

Every student in Sinton ISD will receive FREE breakfast and FREE lunch every day at each campus, at least through the end of this school year (2017-2018). Every student will be receiving flyers that explain breakfast and lunch choices to them and to parents and guardians. Parents and guardians need to be aware that there will be no charging. If a student chooses more than one main dish or other extra item, they will have to pay cash for the item or have enough money in their account to pay for the extra item(s).

Sinton ISD appreciates the work of the members of the District Food Service Department who worked so diligently with the Texas Department of Agriculture to secure our participation in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program. For additional information please contact Silke West,  Food Service Director, 322 South Archer Sinton, Texas 78387 361-364-681 Email: swest@sintonisd.net.

Sinton for Youth Christmas Shopping Spree

A special thank you to ALL who helped in any way to make the 2017 Christmas Shopping Spree a success.  50+ Sinton children shopped at Kmart and then were treated to a Christmas Party with fun holiday activities at Sinton High School marking 25 years for SHS participation!  For those of you who have never been involved, it is a Christmas journey that begins about 5:15 am and lasts until about 11am. Santa's elves have been working since late September to make this journey possible. Sinton For Youth cannot thank the Corpus Christi Caller Times Christmas Sharing Appeal enough for continuing to include our organization in this appeal. We are humbled and grateful for the generosity of everyone in the Coastal Bend who donate. Sinton For Youth is also blessed to have some generous individuals and business in our community who continue to believe in our mission and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts.  We all work together, it's "The Sinton Way."  Merry, Merry Christmas!
