2018-19 Clean Campus Awards

West Birdville Elementary has been awarded $500 for being the Cleanest Campus in Haltom City for the 2018-19 school year. Keep Haltom City Beautiful (KHCB) rated the local school campuses on having litter-free grounds, available litter and recycling barrels and the general appearance of their campuses. Each school also submitted their current projects, events and activities that support the KHCB mission, along with photos.

khcb circle black orangeWest Birdville has a school-wide recycling program that covers the cafeteria, the classrooms as well as the teacher’s workroom. They hold a “clean hall contest” where they award the winner a special trophy to proudly display. They also have posters throughout the school to remind students to recycle. During P.E. they walk the grounds and pick up any trash that they see. They recently had a group working in their flower beds on a Saturday and the kids worked with them for a few hours that day. They have printed signs on all paper towel dispensers that remind students to use only two after hand washing. They truly do their best to teach their children and remind their staff that having a clean campus and recycling does make a difference on the campus, our city and the world.

Haltom High School was awarded $250 for their efforts. The STUCO students recycle all paper products from offices, as well as having a school-wide recycling program. They help teachers unplug all electronics to conserve the energy over long weekends. During Energy and Environment Week, STUCO students made videos about environmental issues and ways to resolve them to help the environment. Students pledged to protect animal habitats, to recycle plastic to save turtles from plastic pollution in waters and to conserve water. The Science Club hosts Waste Out Wednesdays to pick up litter around campus after school. They also participate in the Crayola Color Cycle where they send old markers to Crayola to be recycled. The annual officers retreat was spent up trash on the Trinity River in boats and kayaks (pictured on the cover). They coordinated with the Fort Worth Zoo to present “Wild Wonders”. The FW Zoo brought an assortment of animals to HHS, educating students on animal adaptations, different ecosystems and animal interactions. Through Project Wild, students have access to over 200 activities such as “Oh Deer” which focuses on limited resources and “Ecosystem Scavenger Hunts” to get the students outside and explore what is local.

Congratulations to West Birdville Elementary and Haltom High School staff and students for their commitment to protecting our environment and Keeping Haltom City Beautiful.

Haltom City Beautification Board

In 2017, members of the Haltom City Parks Board began exploring the addition of a handicapped accessible playground to one of our parks. After conducting extensive research and sharing their findings with city staff, installation of an “all-access” playground at one of the city's parks became a top priority.

Board members and staff invited teachers and families of students with special needs to attend meetings, share their challenges and describe features they would like to see in a playground. The goal was to ensure their children & students could engage with, and play alongside, any other child or student. During the process, Parks and Recreation Director Christi Pruitt attended a PlayCore professional development session to learn about research-based best practices in playground design. The initiative identified strategic partnerships, such as schools, non-profits and local advocates, who share the goal of building stronger communities through the power of play. GameTime, a commercial playground equipment manufacturer, in partnership with PlayCore and the Texas Recreation and Park Society (TRAPS), made a commitment of up to two-million dollars in matching funds for TRAPS agencies who submitted applications for assistance with the development of playground spaces that encourage best practice designs for active behavior. City staff submitted an application for the grant and were thrilled to find out that Haltom City was selected as one of the 2019 grant recipients. Haltom City will be recognized at the 2020 TRAPS Annual Conference in February.

Dr. Michal Anne Lord, Executive Director of TRAPS, said “We’re excited to once again help local communities put research into action through the power of play and recreation. Congratulations to Haltom City and the 22 other newly designated National Demonstration Sites in our state.” The new “all-access” playground will be constructed on the south side of the entry way at Haltom Road Park. It will feature wheelchair accessible play structures, as well as musical and sensory elements. Twenty-three additional parking spaces will also be added as part of this project. Parks Director Christi Pruitt said “Staff and the Parks Board all agreed Haltom Road Park was the ideal location for this special playground, the first in Haltom City. Situated alongside the Veterans Memorial, we believe it will create a multi-generational educational play space for all of our visitors.”

Construction of the playground is expected to start in September and additional parking spaces will be added after the new playground is installed. A grand opening event to celebrate this new play space will be held upon completion. haltom city all access playground render haltom road park
