  • Exam Students receive free vision exams
     
    GCISD students from across the district received complimentary vision exams courtesy of the Colleyville Lions Club. Working in conjunction with GCISD elementary and middle school nurses, doctors Brian Cherry and Mario Contaldi volunteered their Saturday morning, along with the Lions Club members, to perform exams on 19 students.
     
    In addition to the exam, students were able to select frames and the Lions Club will have glasses made for 16 of these children.
     
    Grapevine Outreach Coordinator Officer Colby Mowery also gave his support by helping set up the event at the Grapevine Community Outreach Facility.

  • GCISD Participates in worldwide Hour of Code
     
    Hour of code More than 75 GCISD elementary and middle school teachers celebrated National Computer Science Education week (December 8-14) by hosting their own Hour of Code event.

    The Hour of Code is designed to be an introduction to Computer Science.  Teachers spend an hour discussing what coding is, and how it is applicable to their everyday lives. Students completed short coding exercises, and some classes Skyped with working professionals from Google and Indeed.com.
     
    Janie Stach is the lead instructional technology coach for secondary schools, and is a big supporter of the Hour of Code program.
     
    "We want our students to be creators rather than consumers of technology,” said Stach. “Hour of Code demystifies coding and supports the GCISD Portrait of a Graduate by teaching computational thinking in order to develop skilled problem solvers."

    If your student is interested in learning more about coding and computer science, visit www.hourofcode.com/us for more information.

  • GES Students Get "Trapped" in Real Life Snow Globe
     
    snow globe
    Grapevine Elementary third graders saw their fictional stories come to life this week, thanks to the help of the Grapevine Parks and Recreation department.

    The students wrote short stories about being trapped in a snow globe, and also created pictures to illustrate them. The Grapevine Parks and Recreation department heard about the student’s project and offered to bring over their giant, inflatable snow globe for a day. The third graders went first, recreating their stories. Over the rest of the day, the whole school got to enjoy the snow globe.

  • TES students put new twist on New Year’s resolutions 

    tes Timberline Elementary School (TES) Kindergartner Iliana Sotelo already has her New Year’s resolution and she is determined to keep it.

    Her goal is to be a good leader in her classroom, and she also wants to finish learning the alphabet and how to count to 100. And she and her classmates have added a new twist to an old tradition to help them keep and achieve their goals.

    Using a new online application called Notability, TES students are tracking three varieties of goals – personal, leadership-oriented and classroom-based. Through the app, students can create, share and manage notes by combining handwriting, typing, audio recordings and photos.

    “Students in kindergarten through fifth grade are easily able to update their goals and track their progress toward meeting their goals on their individually assigned iPad,” said June Ritchlin, TES Principal. “As a result of using goal setting and data tracking with all of our students, we are finding that our students are highly motivated to reach their goals.”

B.E.S.T. Report

  • Hope for Peace and Rest

    Posted by Communication Services at 12/19/2014
    It’s hard to believe that the first semester is already over. The holiday parties and student performances are now fond memories and the grades are (mostly) in the grade book. It seems the older I get, the faster the school year goes.
     
    To add to my family's festivities this year (and to my feeling of time flying by), our middle child Reed is graduating today from Texas A&M. He was fortunate to attend school in GCISD from kindergarten through 12th grade. Throughout his years after high school, he often commented to me about how well GCISD prepared him for college. In fact, we hear that a lot from parents and that is a testament to the quality and care of our GCISD team. To the teachers who taught him in class, please except my thanks for your influence and direction. Each year, in every grade level, we have about 1,000 future graduates. The combined efforts of every staff member in GCISD make college and career success possible. Now that’s what we mean by Building Excellent Schools Together!
     
    My hope for every student, parent and staff member is for a peaceful and restful holiday, for great times with family and friends, and for everyone to have a safe return in January. I also am hoping for an Aggie win in the Liberty Bowl! (And don’t tell anybody, but I am cheering for TCU in the Peach Bowl.) I wish you and yours a very happy holiday season!
     
    BEST,
    RR
    Dr. Robin Ryan
    GCISD Superintendent of Schools
     
    The B.E.S.T. Report is a weekly communication from our superintendent about our schools and community.
