  • Superintendent named Big Brother of the Year for Tarrant County


    GCISD Superintendent of Schools Dr. Robin Ryan was named Big Brother of the Year by the Tarrant County Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) program. In accepting the award, Dr. Ryan implored others to become BBBS mentors.


    “If you want to do something that really touches your heart as you move forward and watch somebody grow, then be a Big Brother, be a Big Sister, and make a difference in someone else’s life,” said Dr. Ryan.


    Melanie Hanna, BBBS Market President for Greater Tarrant County, identifies their mission as simple—to take volunteers and “put them together with amazing students for a one-on-one mentoring experience that changes lives.”


    “This creates a better community within our own neighborhood,” Hanna said.

  • Heritage ES students get ‘Wild About Science’Wild About Science


    Heritage Elementary School students took part in Wild About Science Day. This educational, fun-filled day encouraged students to think critically about science while participating in engaging hands-on science activities. Heritage ES teachers and staff brought together lessons about Earth Day in the planned activities. Instructional coaches from the district also joined in the campus activities to support students’ learning.


    “Wild about Science Day provides the opportunity for students to engage in fun and educational activities to enhance their understanding of science concepts, such as force and motion, matter, and the solar system,” said Stacey Voigt, Heritage ES principal. “Held in conjunction with Earth Day, this day also develops a passion for science in our students not just today but every day!”


    Wild About Science Day was just one way the students celebrated Earth Day. All Heritage ES students and staff were encouraged to walk, ride bikes, or carpool to school, bring waste-free lunches, and wear green to celebrate Earth Day. They also took part in Soles4Souls where students and staff donated 866 pairs of shoes to help those in need. Check out more pictures from Wild About Science day on the Heritage ES Facebook page

BEST Report

  • Students First

    Posted by Communication Services at 4/28/2017

    A few days ago I was walking the hallways of a school and was told about a group of students gathered in the library. They were working through the last details of a business they had created: making bracelets out of rubber bands. This is a skill I do not possess. I told the students that I wear a bracelet every day to honor my wife and her battle with cancer, and I quickly placed my order for a pink and black one. (Cindy is five years cancer free and doing well.) They charged me $2 and I was on my way.


    I traveled a few more steps down the hallway and came upon a first grade PLC, so naturally I invited myself in to observe...I am sure they were thrilled. What I found was impressive. Teachers were meeting with an instructional coach and assistant principal going over student data for the year and planning next year’s adjustments to their teaching. Remarkable! That’s planning ahead!


    While this was impressive, I know these types of activities happen in every school in GCISD. Students learn from real-world examples about their business, customer service, goal setting, monitoring results, quality control and working together as a team...just like our teachers do in PLCs.


    I am so proud to work with professional educators who always put students first! That is how we Build Excellent Schools Together.




    P.S. What about my bracelet? Three days later, it was delivered and I am wearing it today!
