  • GCISD celebrates Red Ribbon Week


    RRW Schools across GCISD are celebrating Red Ribbon Week from October 24-28. During this week, students pledge to make healthy choices and live drug-free. Students and staff are showing their support through dress-up days (such as “Put a Cap on Drugs” and “Texans Give Drugs the Boot”), indoor and outdoor decorating contests, kick-off pep rallies, and many more district-wide events.


    On Monday, October 24, the GCISD Board of Trustees signed a proclamation declaring this week as Red Ribbon Week for the entire district. (Download the proclamation.)

  • GCISD students lead presentations at Region 11 STEAM Carnival


    STEAM carnival This year, the Region 11 Education Service Center hosted its annual Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (or “STEAM”) Carnival on Tuesday, October 18. Students from Grapevine Middle School and Glenhope Elementary School served as presenters for the showcase portion of the event, to demonstrate how to use devices and enhance STEAM learning and problem solving. Some of the activities featured included circuitry, sphero robotics, and more.


    “Attending this event allowed our students the opportunity to hone their communication and problem solving skills as they share their learning with peers,” said Tony Zahn, director of science and instructional technology. “It also allows the district to highlight an example of how we continue to be the best.”

  • Mustang-Panther Stadium: The New Experience


    When Mustang-Panther Stadium opens in Fall 2018 for football season, fans, students, and community members will have a new game day experience as part of a stadium renovation.


    The work will be completed over the next two years using funds the district received through a $26 million Tax Increment Financing (TIF) payout resulting from the 1996 TIF agreement with the City of Grapevine to bring Grapevine Mills Mall to the area.




    Check out our Mustang-Panther Stadium | the new experience webpage for more details about the renovation projects.

  • Medal of Honor recipient visits GCISD schools


    medal of honor Students at both Cannon Elementary: A GCISD STEM School and Grapevine Middle School welcomed a special visit from Medal of Honor Recipient Staff Sergeant Leroy Petry. Staff Sergeant Petry shared his experiences as a U.S. veteran, about losing his hand in combat, as well as about having a prosthetic hand.


    Petry earned his medal after selflessly picking up and throwing a grenade away from his team members while in Afghanistan in May 2008--a decision that cost him his right hand as the grenade detonated seconds after it had been thrown.


    Additional guests to the schools included Military Concert Entertainer Jeff Vezain, Retired Marine Major William Mimiaga, and USAF Lt. Colonel ROTC Teacher Bob Marasco.


    Students at GMS also welcomed local first responders as honored guests to the school. Upon entering the gym, the first responders were greeted with a standing ovation and cheers by the GMS students.

  • The New Experience

    Posted by Communication Services at 10/21/2016

    Tonight is the annual varsity football game between the Grapevine High School Mustangs and the Colleyville Heritage High School Panthers. I, like many of you, will be in attendance for tonight's game at Mustang-Panther Stadium. I look forward to seeing so many students participating in extracurricular activities. With the football teams, the bands, the drill teams, the cheer squads and spirit groups, there will be hundreds of students performing in front of thousands of community members.


    If you have ever been to this game, or any other event at the stadium, there is quite a long hike uphill to your seat, the concourse gets extremely congested, and sometimes the scoreboard is inoperable. But not for long.


    Thanks to the 1996 Tax Increment Financing, or TIF, agreement with the City of Grapevine, substantial renovations are coming to Mustang-Panther Stadium. In the Fall of 2018, fans, students, staff and community members can expect a new experience when coming to events at the stadium - improved accessibility, updated concession stands, spirit shops, restrooms, increased security, a new press box and scoreboard and more.


    In celebration of the football game this evening, information will become available on the GCISD website at the 7:30pm kickoff. This website will detail what a TIF is, how a TIF works, why these projects were selected and additional renderings of the proposed design. It was important that we share this information with staff ahead of tonight's game because this is going to provide tremendous opportunities for not only students but also our staff - so we're giving you early access to the website by clicking here. Mustang-Panther Stadium serves as the host site for many district-wide events, but we are limited by its current shortcomings. Beginning in the Fall of 2018, we will have a place to host special events, professional development, even booster clubs and PTA meetings!


    If you are able to attend this evening's game, I encourage you to walk around the stadium to look at specific renderings of the proposed design. For those of you that are unable to attend, here's a sneak peek of what you can expect in the Fall of 2018 - coming soon to Mustang-Panther Stadium: The New Experience
