Girl Empowerment 2019
Girl Empowerment 2019
05/24/2019
Forty-six students from Emeline Carpenter Elementary and Fredonia Elementary schools came together Tuesday, May 21, for a Girls Empowerment Banquet at the Fredonia Hotel. Tuesday’s activities were the culmination of a year-long program involving girls from Fredonia and Carpenter. Social workers and counselors at both campuses formed up Girls Empowerment Groups, made up of third-, fourth- and fifth-graders. During the year, the groups were guided through topics such as self-confidence, healthy peer relationships, managing stress and dealing with peer pressure. The program was paid for by TTIPS (Texas Title 1 Priority Schools) grants received by Fredonia and Carpenter. TTIPS grants are awarded by Texas Education Agency to assist campuses needing adequate resources to close achievement gaps on standardized testing. At the banquet, the students heard from keynote speaker Valerie Wade, a graduate of Nacogdoches High School and owner of Lynnfield Historical Consulting. Wade’s presentation included an inspirational message about the accomplishments of women throughout history. Afterwards, small groups of girls visited with eight women from a variety of backgrounds and professions. After talking with presenters for five minutes at a time, students and adults sat down together for lunch. During the afternoon, the girls participated in a craft project, decorating picture frames to hold a photo of their group. To close out the day, each group of girls received a small gift bag and the girls were given the opportunity to share a few words about what Girls Empowerment Group meant to them. The purpose of Tuesday’s banquet and activities throughout the year was to inspire girls on both campuses to develop confidence in themselves and to learn that they can dream big, said Catie Munguia, a social worker at Fredonia. Community volunteer presenters at Tuesday’s banquet included: Kim Wells, Spanish professor in the Stephen F. Austin State University Department of Languages, Cultures and Communication; Valerie Wade, historian, Lynnfield Historical Consulting; and Amelia Ruiz-Fischer, immigration and civil rights attorney, Fischer & Fischer Attorneys at Law. Also, Michelle Key, nurse practitioner, Care First Clinic; Virginia Gleghorn, counselor, Crossover Counseling; Evelyn Sauceda, school psychologist and Bilingual Education Director, Nacogdoches ISD; Dr. Lauren Burrow, elementary education professor and teacher, Stephen F. Austin State University; and Lenola Wyatt, Social Worker, Stephen F. Austin State University School of Social Work. NISD staffers that organized the year-long program included: Catie Munguia, TTIPS social worker at Fredonia; Lauren Ivy Sieja, NISD social worker; Monica Simpson, TTIPS counselor at Fredonia; Bonnie Blake, TTIPS clerk at Fredonia; Kiesha Tutt, TTIPS social worker at Carpenter; Almatrice Cotton, TTIPS counselor at Carpenter; and Dawn Arvello, counselor at Carpenter.

Teacher Appreciation Week
05/06/2019
Teacher Appreciation Week This week, May 6-10, is celebrated as Teacher Appreciation Week. Teachers change the lives of millions of children every day, and their work and impact extends far beyond the classroom. The theme of this year’s Teacher Appreciation Week is “Teachers Are Out of this World.” “Our teachers come every day and give the best of themselves in the classroom,” said Nacogdoches ISD interim Superintendent Alton Frailey. “There’s no way to overstate the important role they have in our community and in society at-large.” This is an opportunity to remember the influence of teachers on young lives as well as an opportunity to show appreciation to teachers everywhere for the vital work they perform. From kindergarten through high school, teachers can make a tremendous impression on the future of their students. Nacogdoches ISD employees more than 450 teachers at its 10 campuses.

School Library Month
04/05/2019
Fredonia Elementary April is School Library Month, an opportunity to recognize and celebrate school librarians and their programs. Also during the month, National Library Week is celebrated April 7-13. This year’s theme is “Libraries = Strong Communities” and illustrates how today’s libraries are at the heart of our cities, towns, schools and campuses. Kayla Gayler is librarian at Fredonia Elementary School. In Nacogdoches ISD, librarians provide a number of critical resources, programs and expertise on their campuses. In communities across Texas and the nation, libraries and librarians provide an indispensable service in our, particularly when considering their impact on our youngest readers. The benefits of early childhood reading are staggering. A student that reads an average of 20 minutes per day – or a young child read to for 20 minutes per day – will read 3,600 minutes per school year while being exposed to a staggering 1.8 million words per year. And those same students average scoring in the 90th percentile on standardized tests.

Rodeo time in Nacogdoches is coming up, and we’re giving staff and students a chance to celebrate. In honor of the Nacogdoches Pro Rodeo & Steer Show, set for March 21-23, which is spring break here in Nacogdoches, NISD’s Rodeo Day is planned for Friday, March 15.

The rodeo will be held at 7:30 p.m. on March 21, 22 and 23 at the Nacogdoches County Exposition and Civic Center. The Jaycees partner with Nacogdoches County and the Expo Center to bring the rodeo here. All of the profit from the rodeo is given to the Nacogdoches Jaycees, who in turn donate 50 percent back to the expo center for an improvement project. A few years ago, the donations helped pay for the addition of new bucking chutes at the expo. And on Friday, March 15th, NISD staff and students will celebrate the rodeo coming to Nacogdoches!

Students read their way to vote
02/12/2019
Every vote counts. But first, you’ve got to read all about it. Fredonia Elementary School third-, fourth- and fifth-graders were ready to cast their ballots last month at the Bluebonnet Book Voting held in the campus library. Other NISD elementary campuses voting in the campaign included Emeline Carpenter, Brooks-Quinn-Jones, Thomas J. Rusk and Raguet. For their vote to count, students read at least five of the 20 Bluebonnet books. Those that cast ballots at Fredonia were treated to a red-, white- or blue-iced doughnut (with sprinkles, too) before heading back to class. Librarian Kayla Gayler had an iPad set up in a voting booth for students to make their selections. Votes were due by Jan. 31, then the wait begins to see which book wins the grand prize winner that will receive the 2018-19 Texas Bluebonnet award later this spring (something students will gather to watch online). “We have quite a group voting online,” said Gayler, whose library was decorated in lots of red, white and blue. “This is a huge deal in the elementary library world.” The Texas Library Association nominates 20 Bluebonnet Award titles and encourages students in grades 3-6 to read all the books. Later this year, Nacogdoches ISD elementary students in grades 3-5 will gather in the Nacogdoches High School library for the annual Battle of the Bluebonnet Books contest that dates back to 1998. Students at NISD elementary campuses must read at least 10 Bluebonnet books to qualify to compete in the contest. Students that correctly answer the most questions during campus-level qualifying advance to the district competition, where they are drawn at random into teams. The contest was created by NISD librarians to encourage students to read books on the Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List

Bond Proposal Presented at "Huddle Time"
10/24/2018
Nacogdoches ISD interim Superintendent Alton Frailey held a Huddle Time Tuesday night at McMichael Middle School then joined a group of citizens that toured nearby Emeline Carpenter Elementary. At the town hall-style meeting at McMichael, Frailey went through a presentation that outlined how the district arrived at the proposal now in front of voters. Frailey then took questions from those in attendance before moving on to a tour of Carpenter Elementary, which would be replaced with a new school should voters approve the spending plan. The recommendation made in August to NISD trustees by a facilities study committee calls for a new Carpenter to be built at another location with the existing attendance zone. Should the district be unable to secure acreage for a new school, then the campus would be rebuilt at the current site. Regardless of the location, the new campus would retain Emeline Carpenter’s name. (Click here for more details on projects included in the proposal.) Another public forum on the bond proposal is set for 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25, at Nacogdoches Medical Center. The meeting will take place in the third floor classroom located in the Women’s Center.
