Robinson, Carter Park Featured as Hometown Hero
Principal Howard Robinson and Carter Park Elementary School is Fox 4 latest Hometown Hero.
Earlier this week, veteran Anchor Clarice Tinsley was at the campus to film a profile on Mr. Robinson’s Amazing Shake competition and meet with competition finalists. The contest teaches third-graders firm handshakes, the importance of making eye contact, interview attire, holding a conversation, speaking, presenting, and reading fluency.
Nearly 30 third-graders who participated in Jump Start Camp competed in the Amazing Shake contest. The three-round contest challenged finalists to give an acceptance speech in the final round.
City Council Recognizes Fort Worth Student-Athletes
The Fort Worth City Council recently recognized youth athletes who traveled to Reggio Emilia, Italy in July to compete in the sixth edition of the Tricolore Youth Sports Games.
More than 20 Fort Worth Independent School District student-athletes and coaches were part of the nearly 100-member delegation representing Fort Worth in the games. Student-athletes competed in girls’ volleyball, swimming and baseball. The delegation of student-athletes were the only American competitors in the games, according to Fort Worth Sister Cities International, a local nonprofit.
Michael Jacobson, a Sister Cities board member and Fort Worth Tricolore chair, gave a brief presentation recognizing the student-athletes at the city council’s August 14 meeting.
#ThankYouThursday: Facebook Fort Worth Data Center
Thank you to Facebook’s Fort Worth Data Center, which donated more than 1,000 books to S.S. Dillow Elementary School, Wednesday, August 29.
Following a brief program, students and teachers at the school helped data center employees deliver the books to classrooms. Among attendees at Wednesday’s book donation were Board of Education President Tobi Jackson, Kristin Sullivan of Read Fort Worth and Carter Cook, FWISD director of library media services.
Earlier this year, Facebook’s Fort Worth Data Center awarded Read Fort Worth a $25,000 grant in support of the Classroom Library Campaign, a community effort focused on advancing early childhood literacy by placing at least 100 “high-interest” and culturally-relevant books in Fort Worth ISD pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, first- and second-grade classrooms.
Fort Worth ISD’s 100 X 25 FWTX initiative aims to have 100 percent of third-grade students reading on or above grade level by 2025. Superintendent Kent P. Scribner is partnering with Mayor Betsy Price and BNSF Executive Chairman Matt Rose to lead the community-wide Read Fort Worth initiative. This collective impact strategy engages parents, grandparents, and caregivers as well as volunteers from the city’s business sector, higher education, non-profit organizations, and the faith-based community.
