An important milestone has been reached for the Tina E. Whidby Elementary School Renovation project in the Houston Independent School District. The reverse halo-lit signage has been installed and the screen wall tile for the new entry plaza and bus drop-off has been completed. We look forward to the finalized photos of the entire project!

Dallas Independent School District’s Woodrow Wilson High School opened for the 2013 spring semester with a new addition and a fresh renovation. Although the official grand opening will not occur until April, we thought we might share a few sneak peak pictures. We’ll be sure to give you the full photo tour once the grass greens up!
Last Wednesday, I had the honor of attending the ribbon cutting and ground breaking ceremony for the FWISD Polytechnic High School Garden. After receiving the $5000 grant last summer from The CEFPI North Texas Chapter IMPACT Award, it was exciting to see the student and faculty putting the money to use.
As the 20 or so students gathered to take pictures and share cookies in the courtyard, I was reminded how a simple garden and community project can do so much for the average teen today. Nice job CEFPI; great IMPACT on the community!

I was recently honored to serve as Principal for a Day at Raul Quintanilla Sr. Middle School. Principal for a Day is a Dallas Independent School District project that brings community leaders into schools across the district. It was truly inspirational to witness firsthand, the dedication and professionalism of the faculty and staff. After morning announcements, I observed a student success team meeting. All of a student’s teachers team with a counselor to ensure a focused and coordinated team approach to coaching the student through their academic challenges. It is a method that seems sure to lead the way to student success. In visiting several classrooms, I saw passionate, talented teachers and engaged students. I may have only been a principal for one day but in that I felt privileged to witness just a small part of the day to day for several teachers and administrators within the Dallas Independent School District.
