  • April First is Kindness Day
     
    This year we are excited to announce our inaugural GCISD Kindness Day on April 1. While we celebrate random acts of kindness in our schools year-round, this is a special day designated to bring attention to the positive impact even a small act of kindness can make and also to help us gear up for the district-wide Rachel's Challenge Rally on April 18.

    In celebration of GCISD Kindness Day, students and staff across the district are encouraged to wear a Rachel’s Challenge shirt as a reminder to spread kindness throughout the day.

  •  GCISD Hosts Special Olympics Relays
     
    special olympics GCISD hosted their 20th annual Special Olympics Mustang-Panthers Relays on Wednesday, March 25. Ninety GCISD students participated with students from eight other school districts in different track events such as the 100-meter dash, shot put, and the long jump. The other special events included assisted walks/run, wheelchair events, and a unique mini javelin throw.

    “The Special Olympics event is about bringing together the entire district and community for one special day of celebrating achievement,” said Leslie Low, the adaptive PE teacher who started the Mustang-Panther Relays twenty years ago. “Participation in Special Olympics allows our students with special needs not only the chance to develop sports skills, but also provides them with social skills necessary to be a vibrant, contributing part of the community.”

    More than 400 GCISD secondary students attended the events to provide assistance throughout the day. PALS, Student Leadership, Best Buddies and the Varsity football teams were on hand to support the Special Olympics athletes and to help the event run smoothly.

  • GHS team wins honorable mention in math competition


    m3 A team consisting of five Grapevine High School (GHS) earned an honorable mention in the Moody’s Mega Math (M3) Challenge 2015 and will each receive a $250 college scholarship.


    Members of the team include Senior Hasan Ashqeen, Senior Emily deJong, Junior Tine Valencic, Junior Kaab Ashqeen and Junior Miha Valencic.


    According to its website, the Moody’s Mega Math (M3) Challenge is a math modeling contest for high school students where they tackle a real-world problem under time and resource constraints that would be similar to those faced by industrial mathematicians. The title of the problem this year was “STEM Sells: What is higher education really worth?”


    GHS teacher and M3 coach Lori Cleveland said it was a long day of competition but a great learning experience and even a little bit of fun.


    “The students get the problem at 7 a.m. sharp and their solution must be submitted by 9 p.m. that evening,” Cleveland said. “I am so proud of these students and love watching them work. They are truly an inspiration!”


    Only 201 of the 1,128 teams that submitted viable solutions were selected to advance to the second round of judging, and the GHS team was selected as one of 53 teams to receive an honorable mention. Only 5.8 percent of the submitted papers were selected for recognition.

B.E.S.T. Report

  • Legislative Focus

    Posted by Communication Services at 3/26/2015
    This week, several teachers have asked me: “What’s going on in Austin this year? What is the legislature doing this session?” Luckily, I was able to spend a day at the Capitol this week along with our Chambers of Commerce representatives from Leadership Colleyville and Leadership Grapevine.
     
    There are several bills making their way through the legislature that, if they become law, will certainly affect those of us in public education. From bills about graduation to school ratings to funding mechanisms and vouchers, there are multiple bills that are being heard by our senators and representatives every week. 
     
    I encourage you to stay up to date on these items as many could either help or hurt our cause as public educators. Our legislators are working hard to evaluate these bills and would benefit from hearing from their constituents. Senators Nelson, Hancock and Burton, as well as Representatives Capriglione and Stickland, are doing a good job of representing the people of Northeast Tarrant County. I encourage each of you to learn the issues, stay informed, and let our representatives know how you feel.
