  • Cannon creativity soars in global challenge
    cardboard Cannon Elementary School students took part in the Global Cardboard Challenge this month, making their own local event, called: Cannon's Cardboard Creations Challenge. More than 200 students in grades kindergarten through fifth accepted the challenge, developing a wide array of creations, such as robots, houses with functioning elevators, games and more. One student even wore his creation, an airplane, to school.
    According to Tona Blizzard, Cannon principal, through this challenge, students exercised a great deal of design and engineering processes in their projects. Students who chose to add pulley systems and levers to their designs continually tested their design methods to ensure they achieved a workable outcome.
    On Friday, Oct. 10, all Cannon students had the opportunity to browse through the projects during a gallery walk around the school. Check out Facebook for photos of the Gallery!

  • Southlake Rotary donated dictionaries to GCISD 3rd Graders
    Dictionary Members of the Southlake Rotary visited three GCISD elementary schools--Timberline, Cannon and Silver Lake--to donate dictionaries to each third grade student. Rotary members took time to explain the value of both the dictionary and their program. Each child who received a dictionary was invited to truly make it personal by writing his/her name in the inside cover page.
    Students expressed excitement as they flipped through the fresh pages of their new books. Cannon students even started looking up words, such as Scholar and Leadership, together.

  • Spirit of a Warrior

    Posted by Communication Services at 10/10/2014
    They had to take a little more than half his arm bone in surgery. Once the cancerous bone was removed, they replaced it with a donor’s bone and he began a long, tough road of recovery.
    This is recent news from Jaydan Thompson, one of our GCISD students and the son of two of our GCISD employees. I share this information with you with the family’s permission, not to focus on a sad situation but to celebrate a story of strength, hope, love, spirit and support.
    Jaydan has embraced the spirit of a warrior in his fight against cancer. We are grateful that he was able to have this surgery and we hope for his swift recovery. But when we get news like this, it can be really tough. How we react to the news is what is truly important. In the video story from Fox 4 linked below, you can see one example of how our school community has rallied around Jaydan and his family.
    I have lived in this community and been a part of this school district – either as parent, employee, or both – for 19 years. I have seen time and time again, even as recently as this week, how people in our schools take a leading role in supporting and caring for those going through a difficult time.
    All across our district are examples of our people coming together to lift up others. Whenever there is a need – whatever that need may be – our people step up to meet it. On this Homecoming week at Colleyville Heritage High School, I can’t think of a better way to epitomize true school spirit. I know for a fact that Jaydan will be cheering on his Panthers tonight!
    Dr. Robin Ryan
    GCISD Superintendent of Schools
