Eagle Friday Night Safety Reminders

TV TIME: Argyle West Class Featured on Ch. 8

It was a very exciting morning earlier this week in Ms. Peddy's first-grade class at Argyle West Elementary.


Ms. Peddy's virtual instruction class joined a Zoom webcast with WFAA's Daybreak show. All the Eagle students participated in a quick dance party, answered questions from the Ch. 8 anchors and Ms. Peddy explained what it has been like teaching virtually.


"I am so thankful that my students were able to participate in this amazing experience," Ms. Peddy said. "Being virtual doesn't mean you have to miss out, it just means things are different. Different is good."


This provided a great experience engaging the Argyle West Eagle students with the news anchors. The class was up and ready to go online for the 6:20 a.m. live appearance. The unique opportunity may have sparked the interest in some future news anchors!

Huge Turnout for Grandparents Day Parade!

What a great morning celebrating Grandparents Day at Hilltop Elementary and Argyle Intermediate with a parade this year!


Both campuses remained committed to celebrating grandparents and did so in grand fashion this year. Typically, the campuses host grandparents for lunch, but due to safety measures in place, visitors are not allowed on campuses at this time.

Our grandparents turned out in big numbers and packed the drive-through line with decorated cars and our Eagles had their signs ready to honor them!

District Celebrates National Arts In Education Week

The arts are an essential part of a complete education, no matter if it happens in the home, school, or community. Students of all ages—from kindergarten to college to creative aging programs—benefit from artistic learning, innovative thinking, and creativity.


Celebrating National Arts in Education Week is a way to recognize this impact and share the message with friends, family, and communities.


National Arts in Education Week is a national celebration recognizing the transformative power of the arts in education. Passed by Congress in 2010 through House Resolution 275, the celebration is designated to bring attention to this cause for elected officials and educational decision-makers across the country and to support equitable access to the arts for all students.


This week we celebrated the creativity and amazing artistic talents of our Eagles!
