  • GHS art program receives $1,000, students honored
     
    Big Check The Grapevine High School art department was awarded $1,000 from The Art of Grubbs Infiniti program. Earlier in August, Grubbs Infiniti hosted a group art exhibition of new works featuring Texas artists. Grubbs Infiniti also invited Hawley Young and Erin Branscum, GHS student artists, to exhibit their works and presented $1,000 to the GHS art department.
     
    "I think this event is remarkable," said Jeff Nisbet, GHS art director, in a Grubbs Infiniti press release. "To have my students have this experience, to have George Grubbs III as an alumni giving back to his school and his roots is amazing. I love working with students and seeing their perspectives on the world reflected in their art. To have them featured this way is so rewarding.”

  • GCISD Chosen as Code.org Affiliate  

     
    CODE.org GCISD has been accepted as a Code.org K-5 Affiliate District beginning in the 2015-2016 school year. Code.org accepted the top 10% of applicant districts and GCISD is proud to be one of only 4 partner districts in Texas.
     

     GCISD teachers have participated in Code.org’s “Hour of Code” since its inaugural year in 2013-2014. This new partnership will provide computer science curriculum for elementary schools and professional learning opportunities for teachers. 

     

     “The Code.org curriculum intentionally promotes opportunities for all learners to engage in problem solving, a tenet of GCISD’s Portrait of a Graduate,” said Janie Stach, Coordinator of Instructional Technology. “Our students will be able to learn the basics of computer science, which is an essential skill in todays digital age, regardless of their future career choice.”

     

     
    Kerissa Bearce, GCISD instructional coach and Code.org facilitator, will lead Code.org workshops for teachers. Workshops provide an introduction to computer science, pedagogy, overview of the online curriculum, and materials for teaching “unplugged” classroom activities.

B.E.S.T. Report

  • Back To School

    Posted by Communication Services at 8/28/2015
    It has been an amazing first week of school! I fully understand that it takes all district employees, from teachers to bus drivers, working together and planning for months to deliver a successful start of a new school year. We all understand the importance of our work and what we can accomplish for our students by ensuring each one receives a great education.
     
    This week, I traveled to campuses and experienced happy teachers, eager students, administrative teams meeting to "fine tune" processes, the smell of fresh baked rolls and sweaty kids coming in from recess (fortunately not at the same time). I have witnessed the hugs in the hallways, the celebration after losing a tooth at school, the joy of sharpening a brand new pencil and the playing of the fight song after a touchdown.
     
    As public educators, we have the rewarding responsibility of having the most important jobs in the world; teaching and positively impacting our children. Isn't it great?
     
    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.
