The Wolf Howl

Week of 4/29/16

Early Voting Ends next Week

Tuesday, May 3 is the last day for early voting, and I hope that you plan to exercise your constitutional right and make your voice heard. I know I have. Throughout early voting, you may vote at any location in Tarrant County found at; however after early voting ends you may only vote at your designated precinct. It is really easy to vote at the Administration building or at Grapevine Elementary or at the REC! I would encourage you to vote early, as you never know what may come up to disrupt your plans to vote on May 7. The right to vote is one that is a privilege that too many people tend to ignore on a local, state and national level. Please make your voice heard by voting in the 2016 GCISD Bond Election. If you have any questions about the proposal, or for more information, please visit

Staff Appreciation Week

Next week is our STAFF APPRECIATION WEEK! We are excited to celebrate all of you who work so hard every day for the benefit of our Wolves!

On Tuesday, the PTA will host a lunch for us in the Library during your lunch time.

On Thursday, the PTA will host a dessert bar set up in the lounge during your conference time.

We have a few other little surprises and treats in store for you to show you how much we love our WOLVES!

High School Musical this week!

High School Musical, presented by our own Fine Arts department, is this week! I am so excited to see our students as they sing and dance on the stage at GHS. This is a huge amount of time and energy by Shannon Jones, and we appreciate all that she does to make our CTMS musical a standout in GCISD. I hope that you plan on attending the performance on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday evening at 7:00 p.m. at Grapevine High School.

Tobacco Survey

Cross Timbers has the dubious honor of being selected among all the secondary schools in GCISD to give a national survey on student tobacco use. Six fourth period classes were selected randomly to take the survey. I will be contacting those teachers and going over the survey requirements this week, for the survey to be given in May.
