Commerce ISD superintendent Charlie Alderman reflects on the new ASPIRE program, which involved around 100 children going into the first through the fifth grades in a summer enrichment program.  As part of ASPIRE, Texas A&M University-Commerce, provided the "Summer Experience," a variety of activities showing the children what college has to offer.  The 2017-18 school year begins earlier than it has in recent years, on Monday, August 7.  The Commerce ISD will have more week-long holidays during the school year, with the first one Oct. 16-20.
