DAY OF PENTECOST

New Zion Baptist Church, previously First Baptist Church NBC before its recent name change, celebrated the Day of Pentecost on Sunday, and most in the church wore white to commemorate this special day. There were also many public figures in attendance, including San Marcos Mayor Jane Hughson, City Council Member Saul Gonzales, City Council Member Jude Prather, City Manager Stephanie Reyes, Police Chief Stan Standridge, Hays County Constable Pct. 1 David Peterson and Hays County Commissioner Debbie Gonzales Ingalsbe. According to Christianity.com, Pentecost is observed on the seventh Sunday after Easter when, as it goes in the bible, the Holy Spirit filled the church with power and added 3,000 new believers. In Acts 2 of the bible, after Jesus ascended into heaven, his followers were gathered together when the Holy Spirit “filled the whole house where they were sitting.” According to Acts 2:4, each of the people in the room could hear the Galileans speaking in their native tongue, which the Holy Spirit enabled.

School board approves flexible attendance program for students in need

Some students need to work in order to support the rest of the family. It can be a reality of life. That may be just one example, but attendance standards at school can be difficult to meet for a variety of reasons as well. The school district wants to make sure that no student is left behind, particularly those that are close to dropping out, which can occur for various reasons that are out of the students control. The San Marcos Consolidated Independent School District Board of Trustees approved the Optional Flexible School Day Program for the 2024-2025 school year at the regularly scheduled meeting Monday in order to ensure the allowance of flexibility in student scheduling to account for individual needs and promote graduation for all students.
