    The meeting was like any other: a collection of different thoughts commenting upon society, history, and the human condition; a discussion about the language department at GHS became one about the development of a lingua franca throughout history, how language is an integral part of identity, and finally into how identity manifests through culture at GHS today. A heavy topic - especially considering the country’s political climate as well as what this school has gone through these past few years. Given this background, the members of Student Forum at that meeting began to work on bringing the school’s first Multicultural Night to life.


    About 150 people attended the one-hour long event which had Indian, Mexican, German, Roman, French, Norwegian, and Irish cultures represented. At the end of the night, we asked every culture to put in a little memento from their booth into what we called “The Great American Melting Pot” to symbolize that no matter where this country or where this school is, we’re all one. We’d like to thank all the faculty that supported this event and of course all of the dedicated members of Student Forum.

    The Grapevine High School Concert Bands participated in UIL Concert and Sight Reading Contest at Haltom HS this week. These are the second and third phases of a three-part evaluation that Texas Bands have undergone since the 1930’s. Each phase of competition includes a panel of three judges. In order for a band to earn the highest possible score, at least two out of three judges must award a “first division” or superior rating. The UIL Sweepstakes is designed to reward excellence in the three most measurable aspects of public school band curriculum – marching, prepared concert performance and the ability to sight read music “on the spot”.  The Grapevine High School Marching Band earned 1st Division Superior ratings last Fall and the Varsity and Non-Varsity Concert Bands received 1st Division Superior ratings this week from the UIL Concert Judges. The GHS Sub Non-Varsity received ratings of Excellent for their performances.   The distinction of "Sweepstakes" was awarded to the GHS Band Program for the Superior ratings in both the Fall and Spring UIL competitions.  The bands are now preparing for their competition in Corpus Christi on April 28, and their Spring Concert on May 16.
    Congratulations Mustang Band!

    Christopher Chwa and Dawson Grimes, members of the Grapevine High School Band will perform with the Texas All-State Band in San Antonio, Saturday, February 11, 2017 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center as part of the 2017 Texas Music Educators Association Clinic/Convention. These students were chosen for this prestigious honor through a competitive process held this year across the state at District, Region, and Area levels. Christopher is a student of Joseph Prescott, Dawson a student of Jeanene Johnson and they both perform at school under the direction of Shannon Gill who is a member of the Texas Music Educators Association, a 12,000+ member organization headquartered in Austin. This is Christopher and Dawson’s first time to perform as a member of a TMEA All-State organization.


    High school students selected to perform in the All-State concerts have competed through several levels of auditions beginning in the fall of 2016 to qualify at the state level. All-State is the highest honor a Texas music student can receive. 1,780 students are selected through a process that begins with over 68,000 students from around the state vying for this honor to perform in one of 15 ensembles (bands, orchestras, and choirs). Texas Music Educators Association sponsors the Texas All-State competition. This competitive process begins throughout the state in auditions hosted by 33 TMEA Regions. Individual musicians perform selected music for a panel of judges who rank each instrument or voice part. From this ranking, a select group of musicians advances from their Region to compete against musicians from other areas in seven TMEA Area competitions. The highest-ranking musicians judged at the TMEA Area competitions qualify to perform in a TMEA All-State music group. Only the top 2.6% of musicians who initially audition become All-State musicians.



    These All-State students participate in three days of rehearsals directed by nationally-recognized conductors during the TMEA Clinic/Convention. Their performances for thousands of attendees bring this extraordinary event to a close. For the All-State concert schedule and conductor information, go to the Performances section of


    The Texas Music Educators Association is an association of over 12,000 school music educators dedicated to promoting excellence in music education. Go to for more information.

    Through encouragement from his teacher Kristy Hansen, GHS student Kyle Bowman applied for the Crow Collection of Asian Art Artist Residency Program taking place over the winter break.
    Students completed a four-step application process for the program: a typed application, a letter of recommendation from myself in a sealed envelope, typed short answer questions, and an 8 1/2 x 11" artwork submittal.
    Kyle is 1 out of only 12 students in the DFW Metroplex to receive an invitation to participate in the Artist Residency Program from December 19, 2016 through December 21, 2016.  Working alongside artist Kankan Huang and Crow Collection Educators, Kyle will create work(s) of art through sculptural mold and casting processes with inspiration from Huang and community members' personal stories of Chinese New Year traditions.  These work(s) will be on view at the Crow Collection during the museum's Chinese New Year Celebration on January 28th.
    Very excited for Kyle with the accomplishment only a select few have the opportunity to experience. Excited teacher!!

    According to the Star-Telegram, the Grapevine golf program is looking to pick up right where it left off last season, and coach Bryan Humphreys said he believes he could have the teams to make another run to the state tournament with a little work.

    The Mustangs boys and girls teams were both close last year, each qualifying for state and holding their own in the state tournament.

    “We have high hopes for our men’s and women’s golf programs,” Humphreys said. “The last few years have been mixed with a lot of hard work and fun. The women have made it to three straight state tournaments and the men have reached it the last two years. Overall, we lost three seniors to college golf scholarships, so we are looking for quality people to replace them.”  Read more . . .

  • Former GHS Mustang returns to alma mater to coach volleyball

    woody Former Grapevine High School volleyball player and alumni, Whitney Woody, has been named as the new Lady Mustang volleyball coach. Trustees approved the recommendation during its regular meeting on Monday, March 28.


    Coach Woody will rejoin the Mustangs from Centennial High School in Burleson where she has served as head coach since 2012. Before coaching at Centennial High School, Woody was the head volleyball coach at Arlington Heights High School and Stripling Middle School.


    “We are so excited to have Coach Woody rejoin the Mustang Nation after serving as team captain and a three year varsity letterman during her time at GHS,” GHS Principal David Denning said. “The experiences she has had not only as a former Mustang, but also as a highly successful high school volleyball coach, will help continue to lead our student athletes not only on the court but also in the classroom.”


    The search for a new head volleyball coach began in January when Kori Cooper accepted the head coach position at Cedar Park High School in Leander ISD.


    Woody played collegiate volleyball at Midwestern State University and Wesleyan University and received her bachelor of science from the University of Texas at Arlington.


    “Grapevine High School and the Lady Mustang volleyball program have been part of my life for many years in many different ways and I am fulfilling a dream to coach and teach at my alma mater,” Woody said. “I look forward to continuing the successes of the Lady Mustang volleyball teams and am excited to meet the athletes and parents who work so hard to make this program strong.”
