  • Trustees Tour School Improvements Funded by the 2016 Bond

    Trustees Tour Construction Sites
    Members of the GCISD Board of Trustees on Friday took a tour of several campuses to view progress on projects resulting from the May 2016 bond election. Trustees, administrators, project architect and construction management representatives made stops at Cannon Elementary: A GCISD STEM School, Grapevine Middle School, Colleyville Heritage High School’s new Multipurpose Activity Center, Heritage Middle School, Timberline Elementary, Grapevine High School and Mustang-Panther Stadium.

     

    At Cannon Elementary, Trustees got a look at the foundation area where the new school will be located. Trustees also were shown the new secure entryways installed on a number of campuses and viewed the transformed libraries, now known as the learning commons.

     

    Board President Lisa Pardo expressed thanks to the taxpayers of GCISD for voting to approve these new facilities. “These new learning commons areas, classroom additions and other improvements are only possible because of the support of our citizens.”

  • Glenhope Takes On the Eye of the Hurricane

    By: Erica DeAngelo, a Junior at Colleyville Heritage High School 

    As part of the student voice initiative, GCISD will periodically feature news articles written by high school journalism students.

     

    Glenhope Skype Session On Tuesday, September 12th, the fifth graders of Glenhope Elementary School received a lesson on hurricanes they will never forget!  Previous to the event, the classrooms spent time covering hurricanes due to their presence all over our country’s news channels. At two in the afternoon, the elementary library began to fill with lively children, eager to widen their knowledge of these tropical storms. Their unique visitor for the afternoon was meteorologist, Jason Johnson.

     

    Kicking off his lesson, Johnson presents a power point he created for the 5th graders. In the presentation, he describes how a hurricane develops and the levels of danger it is capable of reaching . He goes onto depict how this danger is rated in “meteorologist talk,” or more simply put a “Category.” Johnson not only provided an explanation of hurricanes in our country’s history, but also went on to discuss our current hurricanes, Harvey and Irma. Hurricane Irma had begun forming in late August off the coast of Africa. While Irma’s danger level was a Category 5 when hitting Puerto Rico, it became a Category 4 when arriving in Florida. Through photographs within his presentation, Johnson was able to depict just how devastating these storms can be; leaving families with little personal items and islands without vegetation. I believe everyone observing the lesson could agree we are blessed to not be victims of the current hurricane’s aftermath.

  • What Stories Would You Tell?

    If someone asked you to talk about your experiences with GCISD, what would you say? What stories would you tell? What if someone asked our students about GCISD? What would our students say?
     
    In my role, I get to talk to students, staff and parents every day. I often ask them to tell me how things are going and what they like about GCISD. I also get to speak to numerous groups in our community and often show a video to help tell our story. So, we recently asked a few questions of some of our students and staff and had the camera rolling. The result is what I would call “GCISD gold.”  I hope you will click on and view this video.
     
    I am so proud to serve our students alongside tremendous professional educators. All of us have a GCISD story to tell, and this is an example of excellent storytelling.  If you see the students or staff featured in this video, please tell them “thank you” for sharing our story so well. 

    BEST,
