  • Become a Varsity Football Junior Captain!
     
    football Are you an elementary school student in GCISD? Are you excited to become a Grapevine Mustang or Colleyville Heritage Panther? Ever wish you could be on the field during a varsity football game? Well here’s your chance!

    Simply send your back-to-school photos to communication.services@gcisd.net during the week of August 25-August 29 and include your name, grade, campus, phone number and whether you are a future Mustang or Panther, and you’ll be entered to win the chance to be a Junior Captain during an upcoming varsity home football game at Mustang-Panther Stadium!

    If selected as a Junior Captain, you will get to walk out to the 50-yard line with the varsity game captains for the coin toss and you will be recognized in the end zone during the first quarter. 

    Students who submit a back-to-school photo will be placed in a drawing and selected at random. Elementary students selected for Junior Captain will be notified during the week of September 2-5. Good luck!

  • Sharpening the Axe

    Posted by Communication Services at 8/22/2014
    This is an actual conversation of text messages last Tuesday from an educator I know... somewhere in the Central Time Zone.
     
    Sender: "In-service was supposed to start at 8:00. It's 8:32 and it still hasn't started."
     
    I did not immediately reply. I received the message just before Convocation. Then – right at 9:00 a.m. on the dot, the video began to signal the start of GCISD Convocation 2014. (YES!)
     
    After Convocation:
     
    Me: "Well, you had a slow start. How are things now?"
    Sender: "Moving very slowly."
    Me: "Bummer"
    Sender: "Totally."
     
    Sender: "You would die if you were in here right now. Two people just got in an argument and we are all just sitting here...waiting. I came with a good attitude and this is not how I expected it to be."
     
    Fortunately, this story, although true, does not apply to GCISD. This week has been a wonderful week of welcomes, work and professional learning. For months, our staff has planned for Convocation and for a strong, engaging few days of Professional Development. This time of year is so important. It reminds me of a quote by Abraham Lincoln, "Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe."
     
    We have had a very good week of "sharpening the axe" and will be ready for our students Monday morning. Thoughtful, timely professional development is a strong component of Building Excellent Schools Together!
     
    BEST of luck on Monday!
    RR

    GCISD Superintendent of Schools
