  • Snaps, pops and poetry fill CHHS library
     
    poetry Colleyville Heritage High School students came together to share creative poetry about teen life at the Poppin' Poetry Slam on Thursday, Sept. 25. Students took the mic and expressed themselves through rhythmic poetry while their peers attentively listened, snacking on popcorn and 'soda pop' and expressing their appreciation with light snaps and soft "wooos."
     
    CHHS Senior Inaara Shiraz has spearheaded this effort, creating the Spoken Word Poetry Club at CHHS as part of her Girl Scout Gold Award Project. The group meets on the last school Thursday of every month, alternating between open-mic poetry slams and poetry-writing workshops.

  • CES Kindergarteners Celebrate Dot Day
     
    Dot Day Celebrations Colleyville Elementary School (CES) kindergarteners celebrated Dot Day by making their mark in a big way. Dot Day is an international event, based off of Peter Reynold’s book The Dot. The inspiring story encourages kids to find out what their talents and gifts are, and to use those gifts to make their mark on the world.
     
    “The Dot’s powerful theme is that everyone has a gift to give,” said CES librarian Karen Kessel. “We want our students to learn early on that everyone is important in this big, wide world!”
     
    Kessel, and the art teacher, Allyson Thomas, worked together to create an exciting Dot Day experience for the students. In art, they learned about the artist Wassily Kindinsky and his circles. At the library, they split into groups and worked on different dot-related assignments, including a scavenger hunt and craft projects using dots.
     
    “We loved being able to work with Mrs. Kessel. She taught the kids how to respond to a story in creative ways,” said kindergarten teacher Jana Schultz. “The whole school dressed up in dots to support and participate with the kindergarteners. It made them feel so special!”

B.E.S.T. Report

  • Be first and be the BEST

    Posted by Communication Services at 9/19/2014

    A few months ago, I was sleepily delivering my son to school early one morning when I noticed that the Starbucks had opened across from Grapevine High, so I made the decision to get in the drive-thru line. I ordered my coffee and moved to the pay window. When I got there, the barista said: “We just opened a few minutes ago and you are our 100th customer – here’s a coupon for 100 free coffees over the next year.” Wow! I didn’t even realize it was their first day!

    To be among the first is very often a memory of a lifetime. This week, students at the GCISD Collegiate Academy at Tarrant County College Northeast hosted a dedication celebration to commemorate the opening of their new school. The 113 GCISD freshman students who bravely accepted the challenge to be the first class of students at our newest high school were buzzing around the auditorium. They know the excitement that comes with being the first! In four short years, these students have the opportunity to graduate from GCISD with a high school diploma and graduate from TCC with an Associates degree – and many of these students are the first in their family to attend college!
     
    As I looked around the room at our first Collegiate Academy freshmen class, I challenged them to not only be the first but to also be the BEST. It’s our challenge as a district every day, and we are making great strides in Building Excellent Schools Together!
     
    BEST,
    RR
