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!
Attention! Attention! Calling all Travis Elementary School and Port Arthur ISD Alumni!
As you may already know, the new William B. Travis Elementary School is undergoing construction next door to the current building on Lake View Avenue.
Once the new building gets closer to completion, a mural composed of thousands of small photos will be placed in the main corridor. This is where we need YOUR help! To complete the mural, we need photos from Travis and Port Arthur ISD alumni depicting our culture, history, students, and staff. Don't be afraid to represent your Memorial, Lincoln, TJ, or SFA pride! We want this mural to represent our city and school district, past and present. At this time, we are having difficulty finding photos to represent the 60's, 70's, 80's, and 90's generations, so if you were a PAISD student during that time, please spread the word.
If you'd like to help us with this endeavor, please send scanned or digital photos to email@example.com. We ask that photos are cropped so that there is no "slug" area. As always, thank you for supporting our school and district.
