  • Dove ES students explore new cultures through World Friendship Day

     

    World Friendship Day Dove Elementary School celebrated its sixth annual World Friendship Day with 13 countries and the state of Alaska being represented. While most countries were being represented by an adult, student ambassadors put their communication skills to work by delivering presentations to their peers. Effective communication and global citizenship are two skills all students in GCISD develop through the district’s Portrait of a Graduate.

     

    “Our students at Dove Elementary strive to become global citizens through their daily instruction as well as through clubs and events,” said Joyce Mery, Multicultural Language and Art Expressions teacher. “World Friendship Day gives my students the opportunity to explore other cultures and learn about traditions that their school friends embrace at home. I believe knowledge promotes tolerance and empathy, and being a global citizen begins here, in the heart of our schools and community.”

    GCISD had 110 students participate in this year’s Visual Art Scholastic Event, or VASE, regional competition. Colleyville Heritage High School received the highest ranking for 41 out of their 64 pieces of artwork entered in the competition, with Alexandra Popke advancing to the State VASE competition. Grapevine High School had 46 out of their 66 entries receive the highest rating and are advancing three students - Cade Shuck, Emily Dempsey, and Camille Krumweide - to the State VASE competition.

     

    “VASE is an excellent experience for all students, not just for those who wish to continue in the art field after high school,” said Sarah Roye, Colleyville Heritage HS art teacher.

     

    VASE is sponsored by art educators and the Texas Art Education Association with a mission to recognize student achievement in the Visual Arts by giving them a standard of excellence to achieve. Popke, Shuck, Dempsey and Krumweide will compete in the state competition April 28 - 29 in San Antonio.

BEST Report

  • We all have a part

    Posted by Communication Services at 2/10/2017

     

    I am so proud of what our students accomplish each and every day of the school year, but lately we have been inundated with good news from our students. Here are just a few examples:

     

    • Nine GCISD students were named to the All-State band or choir.
    • A CHHS student was named a Presidential Scholar. (She also had a perfect score on the SAT and the ACT!)
    • A CES student designed an original “challenge coin” for the Soaring Valor trip to the WWII Museum in New Orleans in March.
    • A CHHS student was named the Youth of the Year for the Colleyville Chamber of Commerce.
    • Numerous student-athletes from GHS and CHHS signed letters of intent to play a sport in college.
    • CHHS and GHS produced musicals that were filled to the brim with talent.
    • Hundreds of students are involved in basketball playoffs, band, soccer games, choir, softball, baseball, debate, swimming, one-act play, wrestling, golf, tennis and numerous other activities.

     

    The constant force behind the success of all of these students is a cadre of caring adults. Whether a teacher, coach, bus driver, facilities services, administrators, nutrition services, technologist, office staff, crossing guard, and even the person in charge of purchase orders, we all have a part in shaping the successful educational experiences for our students.

     

    Thank you for doing your part. It takes all of us to Build Excellent Schools Together!

     

    BEST,
    RR
