  • Students Celebrate 100 Days of School

     

    Elementary school students across the district celebrated the 100th day of school in style this month.

     

    O.C Taylor kindergarteners were encouraged to dress up like they were 100 years old, and several of their daily activities focused around the number 100. First graders brought in 100 objects from their home to use in math class, dreamed up ideas about what life will be like if they live to be 100, and played minute-to-win-it-style games focused around 100 objects.

     

    Bear Creek first graders wrote stories about what they would do with $100, sorted 100 snacks, and made picture collages. Second graders made a 100 museum with items brought from home, and visited each other's classes.

     

    Grapevine Elementary students have been keeping track of the number of days of school since the beginning of the year, using popsicle sticks and straws.

     

    “It's a fun way for the teachers and students to celebrate various math concepts that can be taught using the number 100,” said Kim Ray, GES assistant principal.

  • GHS & CHHS welcome visit from Tuskegee Airman

     

    Tuskegee Airmen Both Grapevine High School and Colleyville Heritage High School juniors were selected to preview “The Luft Gangster,” a movie about the Tuskegee Airmen. Following the screening, students took part in a Question and Answer session with the film’s director and producer, as well as a Tuskegee Airman Eugene Richardson.

     

    "It was a very rare and special opportunity that clearly moved those in the audience and will hopefully create understanding and memories that will last forever," said Dr. Suzanne Newell, director of humanities.

     

    The special school preview was part of the movie's debut, in partnership with American Airlines. "The Luft Gangster" will be shown on every American Airlines flight during the month of February

     

    "We were fortunate to receive an invitation from Captain Jim Palmersheim, the Director of Veterans' Initiatives for American Airlines, to be the first school system in the nation to screen a new documentary entitled "Luft Gangster"," Newell said. She continued to explain that the movie chronicles the life of Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Jefferson, one of the original Tuskegee Airmen who fought in WWII.

     

    "For me, as the Director of Humanities, it was a truly special opportunity," Newell said. "Much of the work I do in my role is behind the scenes, so getting to see students' faces during these assemblies was priceless.

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!

    Dr. Robin Ryan
    GCISD Superintendent of Schools
     
    The B.E.S.T. Report is a weekly communication from our superintendent about our schools and community.
