An operator of a motor vehicle may not use a wireless communication device while operating a motor vehicle on school property. This does not apply to hands-free devices or affixed GPS devices while on school property. What this means is all drivers are prohibited from texting and using handheld devices while driving in the drop-off and pick-up lines, driving across parking lots, and driving in school zones on all streets in and around Cross Plains School campuses. This is to keep the area safe for all students and school employees from distracted drivers.

My name is Jesus Perez and I am excited to serve as the band director and music teacher for Cross Plains ISD!  This will be my 16th year of teaching.  Prior to coming to Cross Plains, I've taught at Axtell ISD, Italy ISD, and Midlothian Heritage HS.  During my time at Italy and Midlothian ISD, bands that I conducted and assisted with were consistent UIL Sweepstakes award winners.  Some groups even achieved state recognition, most notably in the 2014 State Honor Band competition where the Italy band won the bronze medal and in 2015 when the Italy band was the 1st runner up at state in the class 2A Outstanding Performance Series Competition.  I hope to bring similar state recognition to our district in the future.  

I hold a Bachelor's in all-level music education from Southwestern Assemblies of God University and a Master's in Music Education from Tarleton State University.  I have certifications to teach All-Level Music and English as a Second Language.  I am also a member of the Texas Music Adjudicators Association with endorsements to judge marching bands and concert bands at UIL.  

My wife Jodi and I celebrated our second anniversary this summer.  We are actively involved in the music ministry at New Hope Church in Abilene.
