Titans Fight Song
Go ye mighty TITANS to the victory we seek;
Go ye mighty TITANS, and the foe we shall defeat.
Pride and Honor, ours to proclaim;
Stand together for TITAN fame.
Red, Black, and Silver Pride will take us to Victory!
Interlude: Go TITANS! Go Ye Mighty TITANS!
Repeat: Go ye mighty TITANS etc.
MHS School Song
To dear Memorial High we sing
We pledge our Loyalty to thee
Time will pass and we will know
How much we love Me-mo-ri-al
May no act of ours show shame
To loyal hearts that love your name
Through the years we will remain
Forever Ti-tans! Praise Your Name!
Due to the City's water pressure issues, the District, like the city, is under a boil water notice. After discussion with City officials, the District has made the decision that children can be picked up from school, otherwise, we will make provisions for the students that must remain on campus.
We are working with the Shipping and Receiving department to deliver bottled water to all campuses and our cafeteria workers are taking the necessary steps to ensure our food preparation is not inhibited by the low water pressure.
Principals and staff are on hand to assist parents with the pick up the process. We will continue to monitor this situation and update the community as time allows.
Thank you for your support of Port Arthur Independent School District.
