Keller ISD R.O.C.K

In the month of January, teachers, students, parents, and our community have an opportunity to purchase NEW 2016 R.O.C.K. shirts. Please help support our KISD’s Reaching Out with Character and Kindness. This purchasing window is only open till Friday, Jan. 29. A second purchasing window will occur in March. The money raised from shirt purchases will help bring in district guest speakers and provide training to our faculty and community on anti-bullying and anti-harassment efforts.

Keller ISD Film Festival

The festival is an opportunity for students to develop their visual literacy and expand their educational experience in Keller ISD by fostering the creativity, artistic, communication and technical skills required for producing a movie. Students have seven entry categories to choose from including Story, Comedy, Music Video, Documentary, PSA Plus and Animation, and have the chance to be honored at an Awards Ceremony on April 5th, 2016 at the spectacular Alliance Cinemark XD Movie Theater, where they can win trophies, certificates, prizes and more!

The period to submit your entries is Jan 5 - Feb 29, so get working on your films! Click here to view the rules and find a category to develop your movie. Work on a solo project, involve your friends, or work with your teacher to turn it into a class project! Remember, you can enter as many films as you like, in as many categories as you like, so get your creative juices flowing and start making movies!
