Page 2 Marketplace June 26, 2003 HCISD two to travel to White House for grant Sherri White, dictor of elementary curriculum for Hays CISD, and Cynthia Davis, principal of Tobias Elementary School, will travel to the White House to receive a $25,000 grant they received for a literacy program at the district's newest elementary school. The First Lady's Family Literacy Initiative for Texas is a program of the Laura Bush Texas Fund for Family Literacy. Mrs. Bush founded the initiative when she was First Lady of Texas. Funds for the grants are raised at the annual Celebration of Reading. The name of the Tobias project is Reaching FAR (Families as Readers). The grant includes a parent/family literacy component, a literacy component for chil- dren, and a time for parents and children to read and learn together. Hay s CISD is one of 10 school districts in the state to receive the grants. Mrs. White and Mrs. Davis will attend a recep- tion for grant recipients at the White House hosted by First Lady Bush on July 1. TAKS summer testing scheduled On Tuesday, July 1, 3rd grade students who have not passed the reading TAKS will be testing at Fuentes Elementary School, beginning at 7:45 a.m. The graduating class of 2004 is the last class of students to be required to pass the TAAS for graduation. There is a summer administration of this test for students who have not already passed the TAAS. Testing will be at Hays High School on Tuesday, July 8 for writing, Wednesday, July 9 for mathematics and Thursday, July 10 for reading. For more information, contact John Thomell, 268-1472, ext. 6484. Remediation Study Guide now available The Texas Education Agency is required to develop a summer remediation study guide to help parents in providing assistance to students who did not perform satisfactorily on one or more parts of the TAKS test. These study guides are shipped to local school districts for distribution to stu- dents and parents. If you did not receive such a guide, you may obtain your free copy at your child's campus. Summer hours at Hays CISD cam- puses are Monday through Thursday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Trustees focus on leadership Laurie Cromwell, Christie Pogue, Joe Mufioz, Henry Altmiller and Joe Graham of the Hays CISD School Board joined local trustees from across the state at the Texas Association of School Board's (TASB) Summer Leadership Institute this past weekend in San Antonio. More than 2,000 new and veteran school leaders received in-depth training on every facet of effective board governance and heard keynote addresses from nationally known experts. Some of the topics included in the three-day institute included an update on the 78th Texas Legislature, parental rights and the No Child Left Behind Act. Other relevant sessions focused on the district's role in preparing students for higher edu- cation, school fmance, and using data to remove achievement gaps among different student groups. Mrs. Cromwell, presi- dent of the School Board, and Mufioz, secretary, were among the presen- ters. Milli Christner, executive director for the HCISD Education Foundation, joined them in a session, "School Foundations-Gotta Have Them!" They told the Hays CISD success story that includes increased fund- ing, morale, innovation and team leader- ship as a result of the Foundation's efforts. Mrs. Cromwell was part of a panel of school board trustees' presentation, "Telling Your Story," that offered ways districts can make available complete information to the citizens of the district. 007 softball wins sectianals The team photo includes: (front row) Kara Oestrick, Ashley Urbanowicz, Becca Heideman, Alex VanVoorhis and Autumn Marks, (second row) Christina Munoz, Celia Browning, Michelle Sony, Brittany Shelley and Kat Franklin Not pictured is Emilee Price.
