  • GMS STEM Girls Attend Conference

     

    STEM girls

    Grapevine Middle School female students in the STEM program got a unique opportunity last month when they attended the Expanding Your Horizons Conference at Texas Woman’s University.

     

    “The conference is designed to encourage young girls to explore STEM careers,” said GMS STEM teacher Jamie Knutt. “The girls got to participate in a variety of workshop classes, meet female STEM leaders and collaborate with other girls from the area with common interests.”


    The students took classes ranging from architecture and mechanical engineering to learning about the chemistry behind makeup.

  • GCISD schools earn spot in Texas Honor Roll
     
    Honor Roll Logo Both Heritage Elementary School and Bridges Accelerated Learning Center earned spots in the 2015 Texas Honor Roll, sponsored by Educational Results Partnership. Heritage ES earned a spot on the Scholar Honor Roll Schools list, which evaluated Texas high-performing schools without significant levels of low-income students. Bridges earned a spot on the Star Honor Roll Schools list that evaluated Texas high-poverty, high-performing, achievement-gap-closing schools. These schools join about 700 public schools across the state to receive the title of 2015 Texas Honor Roll school.
     
    “We are so proud to be recognized by leaders in the Texas business community as an Honor Roll school,” said Stacey Voigt, Heritage ES principal. “Our teachers and administrators work tirelessly to keep the focus on high expectations and student academic achievement and to continuously improving our practices. This hard work and dedication is paying off for all of our students, no matter their background.”
     
    According to their website, Honor Roll recognizes schools for demonstrating consistently higher levels of student academic achievement, improvement over time, and reduction in achievement gaps among ethnic minority and socioeconomically disadvantaged students.

  • Cost of living adjustment planned for GCISD employees
     
    As part of budget planning for the upcoming school year, the Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District (GCISD) Board of Trustees asked administrators to include a cost of living adjustment for all employees. The adjustment, which goes into effect in the 2016-2017 school year, is two percent of the midpoint for each salary scale.
     
    School Board President Leon Leal expressed appreciation on behalf of the board for the exemplary work of GCISD staff and their loyalty to students and families in the district. He further explained that he hopes this adjustment will continue to bring highly qualified employees to GCISD as the board strives to keep GCISD a destination district, for both families and employees.
     
    In a video message to staff on April 8, Dr. Robin Ryan, GCISD superintendent, thanked trustees for their leadership in making the commitment to a pay increase. Compensation for staff was one of the major items of feedback from the community during GCISD’s Thoughtexchange discussion last fall.

BEST Report

  • See You at the Polls

    Red, White and Blue (Jeans)
     
    Have you ever wondered about the meaning behind the colors used in the flag of the United States of America? In the midst of election season, I decided to refresh my memory. What’s more American than casting your ballot? The experts at the American Legion say that red signifies hardiness and valor; white is for purity and innocence; and blue stands for vigilance, perseverance, and justice.
     
    With these thoughts in mind, let’s celebrate our democracy by voting. Early voting for the May 7 election continues through Tuesday, May 3. As you know, GCISD residents are voting on a $248.975 million bond package. There are other elections happening in almost every community across Texas. Whether you live in GCISD or elsewhere, I encourage you to head to the polls.
     
    On Monday, May 2, GCISD is celebrating voting by encouraging staff and parents to wear a red or white shirt and blue jeans. It’s quick and easy to vote early, and it’s convenient with several early voting locations near your campus or on the way to or from work. Not only is this an important exercise as we play a part in the election process, it’s also a great way to get an extra jeans day while on the job in GCISD! The American colors of red, white and blue; wear those colors proud on Monday….because we are the BEST!
     
    See you at the polls,
    RR
