  • Breast Cancer Survivor Explains Toughness to GHS Mustangs FB Team
    TPW Each October, thousands of pro, college and high school football players add pink to their uniforms in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The members of the Grapevine Mustangs squad got a firsthand account of the struggles of those with cancer from former WFAA-TV anchor/reporter Janet St. James.

    The Mustangs have a team motto of TPW, which stands for Tough People Win. St. James exemplifies that attitude. “It has taken a lot of mental toughness, just like your coaches tell you. I am strong and I am fierce. Those are the words I live by,” St. James told the team.


    St. James was diagnosed with breast cancer on April 1st of this year, shortly after leaving the TV news business to go to work for HCA North Texas as VP of Strategic Communication. Mustangs Head Coach Randy Jackson invited St. James to speak to his team so they would know that there are real cancer victims behind the pink mouth guards, shoelaces and towels the team adds to its uniform during October. “When you wear pink, think of the women and men like me and their families who are going through this,” St. James told the players.

  • Heritage Eagles celebrate College Week, visit Collegiate Academy


    HES visits CA In celebration of College Week at Heritage Elementary School, third, fourth and fifth graders took the opportunity to visit GCISD's Collegiate Academy at Tarrant County College (TCC) Northeast on Tuesday, Sept. 29. Students have been learning about the five attributes of the GCISD portrait of a graduate and how these attributes prepare them to be career- and college-ready.


    During their visit, students watched a skit in the Center Corner followed by a tour of the TCC campus and the Collegiate Academy building. The elementary students were excited to walk around the campus and see areas, such as the library, science lab, and study center. A few comments from students included:

    • "Look! It's a giant building full of books."
    • "It's a vending machine where you can buy school supplies. I want one of those!"
    • "I'm so going to school here one day!" (Heritage ES Principal Stacey Voigt's favorite comment of the day.) 


    "It was an enjoyable and memorable experience for our students," Voigt said. "Staff members were also excited to see former students who were attending the Collegiate Academy. We hope to make this an annual tradition during College Week at Heritage Elementary School."

B.E.S.T. Report

  • Constructive Feedback

    Posted by Communication Services at 9/18/2015
    As you might imagine, I receive a few emails every day. Some are positive, but it has been my experience that people who are happy with the way things are going seldom write... because they are happy. Sometimes, I get the occasional email with some "constructive" feedback. That's OK because we are always searching for ways to improve our service to the patrons of GCISD. 
    The other day, I received an email that was so positive and such a testament to the team we have in GCISD that I just had to pass it along. I understand that we have wonderful people in every department and on every campus. Our employees often go the extra mile to help others. This email says it all. (As an Aggie, it was very difficult not to edit out a few words of the email, but I resisted the temptation.) 
    The following email is just one example of why GCISD is the BEST!

    ---Forwarded Email---
    I am a Retired HS & College FB Coach in the great State of Texas. I played Football @ Abilene HS & The Texas Longhorns of Coach Darrell Royal. I coached for 40 years here in Texas with the chance to play & coach at some of the best FB programs in the state. These opportunities have allowed me, along with my playing experience, to see close some of this states best FB venues through the years. Now my name is not famous, and the things I say will not draw the attention of any sports writer or broadcaster, but I want you to know they come from my heart and I do know what I'm talking about.
    I attended the Abilene High & Colleyville Heritage game Friday night @ Mustang Panther Stadium and was a guest of Abilene High, in the locker room and on the sideline. I had Dbl Knee Replacement surgery 2 months ago and it was not easy to stand that long. The stadium workers were without a doubt my greatest pleasure during the night. From the moment I walked up to the gate until 1 of your workers gave me a courtesy ride to my car in a golf cart after the game, every need I could even imagine was not only met but met with a smile & friendly manner, often before I could even ask. I wish I knew the names of at least 6 or 7 of your staff who treated me like a king Friday night. In 53 years of FB as a player & Coach, I have seen lots of stadiums & even more stadium workers, but the best I have ever seen or experienced were all dressed in red Friday night @ Mustang Panther Stadium. If these people are a reflection of the way things are done in your district, and I'm sure they are, any student going to your schools is blessed indeed.
    GOD Bless Your School District & Every Person In It. 
    Dr. Robin Ryan
    GCISD Superintendent of Schools
