  • FFA kicks off a new year
     
    ffa Did you know that GCISD has more than 150 students who participate in the agricultural science program? This program is part of a three-part model of education that consists of classroom instruction, supervised agricultural experiences and the FFA.
     
    The FFA may best be known for raising livestock and showing projects such as lambs, goats, pigs, and cattle, and GCISD offers a competitive program and many opportunities to exhibit animals throughout the year. However, the FFA also provides members the opportunity for leadership experience, competitions, and scholarships. 
     
    High school members have opportunities to compete at both the state and national level in various leadership development events, such as public speaking, decision making, radio broadcasting and knowledge of agriculture.
     
    It is true that FFA once stood for Future Farmers of America; however, they are now also the Future Biologists, Future Chemists, Future Veterinarians, Future Engineers and Future Entrepreneurs of America. As a 'Premier Student Leadership Organization-FFA,' their motto is: Learning to do, Doing to learn, Earning to live, Living to serve.  
     
    Junior members can begin participating in the third grade and become part of the largest state association by membership with well over 100,000 members across Texas. Check out the Fact Sheet!
     
    The GCISD FFA kickoff will be September 8, 6 p.m. at Nash Farms (626 Ball St, Grapevine). Students and their families are invited to take part in a free BBQ dinner, meet the advisors,and learn more about the program.

  • CHHS principal looks back on Hurricane Katrina experience
     
    2005  2013
    Conrad Streeter in 2005 (L) and 2013 (R)
    As the nation marks 10 years since the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, the principal at Colleyville Heritage High School has first-hand memories of the killer storm. Conrad Streeter was deployed with the Texas Army National Guard as part of the disaster recovery effort.
     
    Streeter was mobilized on August 31, 2005 and arrived in New Orleans within 72 hours after Katrina made landfall. Setting up not far from Tulane University, Streeter’s unit began immediate work to help victims of the hurricane.
     
    “The city had no electricity, plumbing or water and at that time 80 percent of the city was underwater,” Streeter recalled. “We helped with rescue and recovery and we also helped with security.”

B.E.S.T. Report

  • Back To School

    Posted by Communication Services at 8/28/2015
    It has been an amazing first week of school! I fully understand that it takes all district employees, from teachers to bus drivers, working together and planning for months to deliver a successful start of a new school year. We all understand the importance of our work and what we can accomplish for our students by ensuring each one receives a great education.
     
    This week, I traveled to campuses and experienced happy teachers, eager students, administrative teams meeting to "fine tune" processes, the smell of fresh baked rolls and sweaty kids coming in from recess (fortunately not at the same time). I have witnessed the hugs in the hallways, the celebration after losing a tooth at school, the joy of sharpening a brand new pencil and the playing of the fight song after a touchdown.
     
    As public educators, we have the rewarding responsibility of having the most important jobs in the world; teaching and positively impacting our children. Isn't it great?
     
    BEST,
    RR
    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.
