FISD pride pals program seeking volunteers to mentor students

There are children in every school district who need a little extra attention to reach their full potential.
In Franklin there are programs and staff in place throughout the school district to assist children with their special needs. However, district officials understand that some students benefit even more from the extra encouragement and guidance of someone outside of the school setting.
That is where Pride Pals step in.
Pride Pals are volunteers from all walks of life who devote just half an hour each week to mentor a child on the elementary or middle school campus. The “pals” are carefully paired and meet at school weekly to work together on engaging activities developed by the child’s teacher. The time commitment adds up to less than 20 hours a school year. Program officials work closely with volunteers to schedule a time during school hours that best fits their schedule.

Pre-K round up

Calvert ISD is holding an event to get children enrolled into pre-k. The event will take place at Calvert High School from July 23 through July 25, between the times of 9-11a.m and 1:30-3p.m.
Information that you need to bring to enroll your child is a birth certificate, a social security card, current immunization records, and proof of residence.
Putting your child in preschool is important because it provides a foundation for learning both socially and academically to help your child succeed in elementary school. A highly structured environment helps young children learn to make friends and play well with others. This doesn’t mean there are lots of rules or that adults constantly direct children’s activities. On the contrary, the structure of a high-quality preschool classroom is largely invisible to children. Classroom space is organized to encourage social interaction, and minimize congestion and conflicts

Hearne culinary stars shine in FCCLA Cupcake Wars

Congratulations to Ty Anderson on winning Cupcake Wars with her fabulous cupcakes.

 

Mrs. Nelson likes to challenge her students in FCCLA every day. She knows that her students are up to big challenges and she likes to make every day of class fun. This year, her culinary arts class, finished off the year with a cupcake battle royale - based on the Food Network’s epic cupcake battle, Cupcake Wars.

Students had some time during the week to prepare their menu, choose recipes and design their cupcakes. On the day of the contest, each contestant was given a specific amount of time to make, bake and decorate three cupcakes each for two judges. The students were then brought before the judges one-by-one to present their cupcake creations.

Hearne FCCLA shines on the catwalk

Saroya Williams’ smile lights up the entire room as she models this gorgeous golden slip dress.

 

The annual fashion show put on by the Hearne FCCLA classes was a smorgasbord of fashion, free prizes and fun for all ages. Students are encouraged to dress up in one of several categories and strut their stuff on the catwalk. From casual wear to formal wear, the students and future students of Hearne ISD showed grace, poise and more than a little sassy as they walked the catwalk for family and friends.

This year students also had a chance to show off next year’s uniform dress in several versions. The students showed the variety of options available to students to dress up or down their uniforms next year. The dress code will be more uniform, but the parents, teachers and students who helped form the dress code wanted to give students and parents some variety when choosing clothing options. Shorts, pants or knee-length skirts in either khaki or black can be matched with maroon or white button up shirts. Polo shirts or oxford shirts are acceptable.
