  • 1:1 initiative expands to middle school


    one to one Students at Colleyville Middle School (CMS) and Heritage Middle School (HMS) are further integrating technology into the classroom thanks to the recent launch of the middle school 1:1 initiative.


    Until January 2016, the 1:1 initiative was only at the elementary schools, meaning each student in kindergarten through fifth-grade has a device assigned to him or her that they may use in the classroom and in some cases take home with them to work on assignments.


    By expanding the initiative to include CMS and HMS, the district is working towards its goal of integration of technology that spans kindergarten through twelfth-grade.


    “One of the strategic objectives in LEAD 2021 is that every student will responsibly and effectively use and apply the latest technology and be able to use the technology masterfully in all dimensions of their academic work,” said Dr. Robin Ryan GCISD Superintendent. “The district has been very strategic in the roll out of 1:1 so that we may ensure that we have both the instructional foundation and support structure necessary in the classroom for our students and teachers and in our technology networks.”

    “It is important as we continue to develop the future leaders of tomorrow that we reflect on the history that is Colleyville Heritage as we build upon the successes of those that came before us,” said Conrad Streeter, principal of Colleyville Heritage High School. “We are so honored to welcome back former students, staff, parents, and administrators as we look back on the 20 years of excellence and look forward to many more to come.”

  • GCISD Wins Pre-K Award

     

    prek Grapevine Colleyville ISD is the newest recipient of the Child Care Associates (CCA) Pre-K Partnership Award.  This award is given based on efforts to align with community early learning programs and professionals, and ongoing efforts to work with parents of young children in the community.

     

    “GCISD is an example of a school district that has proactively thought through its strategy for young children prior to Kindergarten,” said CCA President Kara Waddell. “We appreciate GCISD’s partnerships, honesty, and reciprocity in trying to improve community programs.”

     

    GCISD and CCA have partnered together to bring Head Start Pre-Kindergarten to three different elementary school campuses: Bear Creek, Silver Lake, and Timberline.  

     

    Head Start is a nationally funded program that focuses on developing and preparing four-year-olds for school readiness by enhancing their educational experience. According to Jodi Cox, GCISD Director of World Languages, by partnering with CCA we are able to provide this program for families in our community.


    “This award represents GCISD’s commitment to early childhood education as we strive to meet the needs of our youngest learners,” said Cox.  “This partnership has provided many families with a full day Pre-K program, an option not previously available.”

  • Timberline takes part in national symposium

     

    TES Leads Timberline Elementary School students and staff took part in the annual Leader In Me National Symposium hosted in Dallas this week. Fifth grader Madison Mooney kicked off the entire Symposium as the lead speaker while third grader Avarose Thuy spoke later in the conference as a member of the student panel. The symposium also includes campus tours and Timberline was selected as a tour site. Timberline is one of 17 Leader In Me schools in the Dallas / Fort Worth area. Students across the campus led visitors from across the U.S. on a campus tour on Tuesday, February 2. 

     

    During these tours, student leaders explained the school wide goals and the data demonstrating growth. The visitors also spent time in classrooms throughout the building where students shared their digital data notebooks, their leadership roles, the grade level data boards, and more.  Each visit included an open and guided tour in which students took the lead.

     

    "The visit ended with great feedback from the symposium visitors," said June Ritchlin, Timberline principal. "They were very impressed that every child at Timberline Elementary sets goals, tracks their progress, leads a parent conference, and speaks confidently with adults about their learning. It was a great day at Timberline Elementary."

BEST Report

  • Red

    Posted by Communication Services at 2/5/2016

    I've seen red all over the district today.

     

    Red is a color that brings us together in GCISD. Both high schools have red as one of their official colors, and many school groups and teams will be performing and competing this weekend while proudly wearing red.

     

    In addition, today is the American Heart Association’s Go Red - Take Action Day. People all across the district are wearing red to signify support for research that leads to fewer of us suffering from heart disease.

     

    And there's more.....today is the roll out for "Speak UP!" Speak UP! is a new way for our secondary students to anonymously report bullying or other unsafe situations to a campus counselor. GCISD is the first district in North America to partner with SourceHOV and Speak UP! to deliver this new technology to our community as an additional measure to increase the safety of our students.

     

    Red is an important color, as it symbolizes empowerment, decisiveness, and leadership....GCISD at its BEST!
