• Welcome to Newton Rayzor!

    Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!

    My name is Cecilia Holt and I have the privilege of serving as Head of School of Newton Rayzor Elementary.  I have been administrator in D.I.S.D. for the last 10 years.  This is my first year to be at Newton Rayzor Elementary and I'm excited to begin my journey as the Head of School for a wonderful I.B. school in Denton I.S.D. The school’s mission of “changing the world by learning from each other” is perfect for teachers, students and parents. We are life-long learners in some way!
    I grew up in the small town of Windthorst which is just south of Wichita Falls, Texas.  My dad still owns a working dairy farm with over 200 holsteins.  That explains why I am such a morning person! I have two children, Kylie and Konnor.  Kylie is a senior at the University Texas (Hook 'em Horns) and Konnor is a sophmore at Texas Tech. 
    I received my Bachelor of Science degree in education from the Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls and a Master's degree in Educational Leadership from the University of North Texas. 
    I'm so excited about the 2016-2017 school year.  Newton Rayzor teachers work so hard and are committed to ensuring that all students learn.  Please know that I have an open door policy and want to hear you concerns and praises.  I can be reached at cholt@dentonisd.org or 940-369-3700.
