  • Mustang-Panther Stadium: The New Experience


    When Mustang-Panther Stadium opens in Fall 2018 for football season, fans, students, and community members will have a new game day experience as part of a stadium renovation.


    The work will be completed over the next two years using funds the district received through a $26 million Tax Increment Financing (TIF) payout resulting from the 1996 TIF agreement with the City of Grapevine to bring Grapevine Mills Mall to the area.




    Check out our Mustang-Panther Stadium | the new experience webpage for more details about the renovation projects.

  • Medal of Honor recipient visits GCISD schools


    medal of honor Students at both Cannon Elementary: A GCISD STEM School and Grapevine Middle School welcomed a special visit from Medal of Honor Recipient Staff Sergeant Leroy Petry. Staff Sergeant Petry shared his experiences as a U.S. veteran, about losing his hand in combat, as well as about having a prosthetic hand.


    Petry earned his medal after selflessly picking up and throwing a grenade away from his team members while in Afghanistan in May 2008--a decision that cost him his right hand as the grenade detonated seconds after it had been thrown.


    Additional guests to the schools included Military Concert Entertainer Jeff Vezain, Retired Marine Major William Mimiaga, and USAF Lt. Colonel ROTC Teacher Bob Marasco.


    Students at GMS also welcomed local first responders as honored guests to the school. Upon entering the gym, the first responders were greeted with a standing ovation and cheers by the GMS students.

  • GCISD Elementary schools participate in Butterfly Flutterby Art Contest


    butterfly flutterby GCISD partnered with the Grapevine Garden Club for the 19th annual Butterfly Flutterby Art Contest on October 15. All GCISD elementary schools participated in this event with 250 students taking part. Three local professional artists served as judges to the contest.


    I think this is a wonderful opportunity for the community to come together, and for our students to express themselves artistically as well learn to respect nature and the wildlife,” said Joyce Mery, Dove Elementary School multicultural language and art expression teacher.


    As a result, 18 students placed in the competition, with three students being named Grand Prize winners. Grand Prize winners include:  

    • Valerie Jacqueline Selig, Kindergartener from Silver Lake Elementary
    • Trisha Thakar, second grader from Grapevine Elementary
    • Samari Stanfield, fourth grader from Silver Lake Elementary


    Grand Prize winners will have their artwork on display at the Grapevine Public Library. The remaining contest winners will have their artwork on display at the Grapevine Recreation Center. Artwork will be on display until Thanksgiving.

  • CHHS and Cannon host Star Party

     Star Party

    The Colleyville Heritage High School astronomy club and kindergartners from Cannon Elementary: A GCISD STEM School hosted a Star Party on October 11. During the Star Party, the two groups met together to read “Reasons for the Seasons,” a book by CHHS AP Physics Teacher Leslie Singles. Following their book reading, they took time to view the moon, and the planets Saturn and Mars, through a telescope.


    Singles said that her favorite part of the evening was watching the kindergarteners’ faces light up when Saturn’s ring came into view. The event was a big success, bringing together 25 astronomy students and 35 Cannon Cubs.

  • The New Experience

    Posted by Communication Services at 10/21/2016

    Tonight is the annual varsity football game between the Grapevine High School Mustangs and the Colleyville Heritage High School Panthers. I, like many of you, will be in attendance for tonight's game at Mustang-Panther Stadium. I look forward to seeing so many students participating in extracurricular activities. With the football teams, the bands, the drill teams, the cheer squads and spirit groups, there will be hundreds of students performing in front of thousands of community members.


    If you have ever been to this game, or any other event at the stadium, there is quite a long hike uphill to your seat, the concourse gets extremely congested, and sometimes the scoreboard is inoperable. But not for long.


    Thanks to the 1996 Tax Increment Financing, or TIF, agreement with the City of Grapevine, substantial renovations are coming to Mustang-Panther Stadium. In the Fall of 2018, fans, students, staff and community members can expect a new experience when coming to events at the stadium - improved accessibility, updated concession stands, spirit shops, restrooms, increased security, a new press box and scoreboard and more.


    In celebration of the football game this evening, information will become available on the GCISD website at the 7:30pm kickoff. This website will detail what a TIF is, how a TIF works, why these projects were selected and additional renderings of the proposed design. It was important that we share this information with staff ahead of tonight's game because this is going to provide tremendous opportunities for not only students but also our staff - so we're giving you early access to the website by clicking here. Mustang-Panther Stadium serves as the host site for many district-wide events, but we are limited by its current shortcomings. Beginning in the Fall of 2018, we will have a place to host special events, professional development, even booster clubs and PTA meetings!


    If you are able to attend this evening's game, I encourage you to walk around the stadium to look at specific renderings of the proposed design. For those of you that are unable to attend, here's a sneak peek of what you can expect in the Fall of 2018 - coming soon to Mustang-Panther Stadium: The New Experience
