LEAD 2021


  • Familiar face named Cross Timbers Middle School principal

    Alex Current Cross Timbers Middle School Assistant Principal Alex Fingers has been named the new leader of the Wolf Pack. Trustees named Fingers as the principal during their regular meeting on Monday, July 25, 2016.


    “I look forward to continuing my service in this new role as principal to the CTMS Wolf family,” Fingers said. “We have great students, staff, parents, and a supportive GCISD community and I know great things are to come from the Wolves as we strive to move forward the “Wolf Way”.”


    The search for a new principal for CTMS began this summer when Lisa Dunn accepted the position of Director of Elementary Services in Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD. Input from campus and community representatives was solicited to determine the desired qualifications and characteristics of a new principal for CTMS.

  • GCISD Dance and Visual Art students visit Europe


    Europe Trip  Earlier in June, students from the Colleyville Heritage High School and Grapevine High School dance and visual art programs participated in a cultural exchange program with the City of Grapevine’s Sister Cities of Krems, Austria and the community of West Lothian, Scotland. Students were accompanied by GHS Dance Director Kaylynn Renfro, CHHS Visual Arts Department Head Sarah Roye, GCISD Director of Fine Arts Pat Antinone and a small group of supportive parents.


    Students began their tour in Bavaria where they visited the city center of Munich, Germany. Students experienced the Dachau concentration camp, and had a chance meeting with a liberated survivor of the camp itself. They then headed to Swangau, where they climbed to the Neuswanstein Castle.

BEST Report

  • Student Voice

    Posted by Communication Services at 5/26/2016

    This is the last BEST Report of the year! Congratulations! We have made it to the last week of school!


    I know we are wrapping up, but I am already thinking about next year. People often ask me what the next step in LEAD 2021 is going to be and where we are headed. It seems to me that we are at the point of "fine-tuning" our craft. Toward that end, about 70 teachers across the district have been working this year on an initiative called "Student Voice." In a nutshell, it is simply working toward more personalization of students' experiences by simply asking for their input...for their voice to be heard on the topic of their learning.


    The teachers in the Student Voice Project this first year have learned many valuable insights into their teaching and their students' learning. A few quotes from teachers include: " ...this has created a sense of trust in my classroom." and "Students definitely feel valued; I saw a positive shift in the culture."


    It is a District goal to continue the Student Voice Project. I have attached a video that tells a bit more about it.


    I encourage you to view the video and think about it over the summer. We will be looking for more volunteers to use Student Voice in their classrooms. If you'd like to learn more about participating next year, please complete this form.


    For now, let's finish strong with a super last week of school!
