BISD Community Engagement

Volunteers Sought to Support Local Schoolchildren in BISD
http://www.birdvilleschools.net/communityengagement

bisdlogoBirdville Independent School Dis­trict (BISD) has developed a com­munity engagement office that com­municates the specific needs of each school campus and coordinates the efforts from volunteer groups. They also promote programs that benefit students and families by encouraging participation and engagement within the dis­trict. One of their main goals is to have every school adopted by a local business, church or civic organization. There are also numerous ways that individuals can support our schools through mentoring, speaking at Career Days, volunteering for campus events and much more.

They have an exciting upcoming event that you can help with...World Read Aloud Day is celebrated by millions of peo­ple in more than 100 countries. This event calls global attention to the importance of reading aloud and sharing stories. In BISD, this event has been celebrated by several campuses, but in 2018 it will be celebrated by all BISD elementary school campuses! In fact, they are dedicating an entire week to this event! World Read Aloud Week is January 29 to February 2, 2018. It is their goal to have each elementary classroom visited by an adult guest reader from the community. If you’re interested in serving as a guest reader for the event, please visit www.birdvilleschools.net/communityengagement and click the "Events & Opportunities" tab.

They are also proud to work with some of our local laundro­mats in offering Laundromat Libraries. These crates of children’s books are kept on site at each participating laundromat. Chil­dren can choose books to read while they wait for their family to finish their laundry. While they would like for the books to remain onsite, so others may also read them, they understand that some readers just may not be able to put their books down! Each crate will be checked on at least once a month, when they will be refilled with more books or changed out to maintain interest.

If you’re interested in helping with the planning of World Read Aloud Day or have children’s books that you would like to do­nate to the Laundromat Libraries, email Adrienne at This email address is being protected from spambots.

$182,000 Raised for HC Students

Parks and Rec Gives Out 825 Backpacks at This Year’s Back to School Health Fair

2017 haltom city bisd back to school health fairOn July 29, 2017, the Haltom City Parks and Recreation Department (HCPRD) hosted their 8th annual Back to School Health Fair at Haltom High School. Every Haltom City elementary and middle school student was invited to this event, where they could receive a free vision screening, a free keepsake family photo, a free haircut, a free backpack, free school supplies, as well as access to all the health information from 30 vendors and sponsors. This year we saw our largest crowd ever, as 1,300 residents attended and 825 students picked up their new backpack and school supplies. The remaining backpacks and school supply packs were given to the Birdville Council of PTAs to distribute to Haltom City students who were unable to attend the Health Fair.

Christi Pruitt, Haltom City Parks and Recreation Director, said “this was our biggest turnout ever and we had a great response from vendors and community partners. It’s such a privilege to be able to give back to the students and families of our community in this way. I am so grateful we are able to raise the funds to support our local students on their educational path successfully.”

HCPRD recognized the financial needs of Haltom City families with all seven of their elementary schools designated as Title 1 campuses and 80% of their students on free and reduced lunch programs. They raised over $27,000 for this year’s Health Fair, and have raised approximately $182,000 over the eight years since they began the program. The Haltom Stampede, CARFEST and the Mayor’s Cup Golf Tournament are the three annual fundraising events they host to raise all the money that assists the local students and families at the Health Fair.

Special thanks to our sponsors for this year’s fair: Amerigroup, Frost Bank, Waste Connections, Birdville Baptist Church & Northeast Ministries, and Five Star Ford. A very special thanks to the Haltom City Police Department for purchasing the 900 backpacks for this year’s event. We would also like to thank the local business sponsors, non-profit agencies, civic groups, local churches and volunteers that make this event possible.

Fine Arts Scholarship Winners

haltom city 2017 fine arts scholarship winnersThe City of Haltom City present­ed three Haltom City graduating seniors with a $500 Fine Arts Student Scholarship at the Northeast Tarrant County Chamber of Commerce’s May Scholarship luncheon. These scholar­ships are a way for the City to support the students of our community while also promoting the importance of Fine Arts in education. We recognize how important they are in building a strong community. Applicants were evaluated by their participation in the Fine Arts programs for at least two years, as well as their leadership in the community and academic performance. This year’s winner’s were Natalie Nounennady, Gavin Ricks and Kasey Romero.

Pictured at right, with Councilmember Bob Watkins, are:

Natalie Nounennady, pictured far left, was in the top 5% of her class, as well as being an AP scholar. She was a member of three choirs at Haltom, including the Show Choir and served as a Choir Officer, as well as being in the Pride of Haltom band for three years where she was a Squad Leader. She was President of the Prayer Club, Vice President of National Honor Society and an officer in the Humanitarian Club. Natalie had a 99 average and was ranked 24th in her class of 542. Natalie will be attend­ing Dallas Baptist University with plans to study music educa­tion with a vocal emphasis and hopes to come back to Haltom High School to be the Choir Director. Natalie impressed us with her energy and incredible ability to do everything! She is a bright, shining star that will achieve anything she sets her mind to. Congratulations Natalie!

Gavin Ricks, pictured in the middle, told us he only took choir as a freshman to get his fine arts cred­it, but fell in love with it and has been in the school choir ever since. He was named as the most Outstanding Junior in the Ac-Capella Choir and also joined the Haltom Singers in 2016. Gavin was Captain of the varsity football and track teams and was also on the varsity wres­tling team. He was chosen as the 2017 BISD Outstanding Core Citizen, as well as the Homecoming King. Gavin had a 94 average and was ranked 81st out of his class of 542. Gavin will be attend­ing Texas Tech University in Lubbock and has plans to major in Business Management. Gavin impressed us with his positive outlook and how he wants to be an advocate for change and aspires to break stereotypes. Gavin has defined himself on his terms and because of that, we think he is already there. Con­gratulations Gavin!

Kasey Romero, pictured far right, has been part of the Pride of Haltom band for seven years, and served as Drum Major, Section Leader and Squad Leader. Kasey is a member of the National Honor Society and DECA, and also the President and founding member of the Haltom Humanitarian Society. In April, she coordinated Glam Girls with Rescue Her, a makeover event for middle schoolers that brought awareness to human trafficking. Kasey had a 95 average and is ranked 63rd out of her class of 542. She will be attending Concordia University in Austin and has plans to become a Medical Social Worker. She wants to change lives for the better and we are so proud that she is from Haltom. Congratulations Kasey!
