According to history books, the first Thanksgiving was celebrated in 1621 over a three-day harvest festival. It included 50 Pilgrims, 90 Wampanoag Native Americans, and lasted three days.

Fast forward to 2020, and families still gather together to enjoy Thanksgiving. McWhorter Elementary and Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District community partner Bent Tree Bible Church will make the holiday special for CFBISD families by providing Thanksgiving meals.

The first 400 families will receive a free frozen turkey and additional uncooked Thanksgiving sides. The Day of Giving: Feeding Families event is an annual tradition for McWhorter Elementary. The Bent Tree congregation and McWhorter staff work hard each year to make sure families have a wonderful holiday.

The event takes place at McWhorter Elementary on Saturday, November 14, starting at 9 AM until they run out of food. Each car will receive one box of uncooked food.

We LOVE our Principals in CFBISD

Thank you for your hard work during the 2020 - 2021 school year. Your dedication to our students and our schools is what makes CFBISD the best school district in the State of Texas.

Students from around CFBISD show appreciation for their principal with a quick word of encouragement from CFBISD Superintendent of Schools, Dr. John E. Chapman III.

Poetry is often a form of expression to evoke meaning. Many believe this form of expression predates literacy. Several young people get their start reading by hearing poetry in the form of fables and tales.

It is no surprise that students enjoy the poetry unit in school. Ranchview High School students in the Carrollton-Farmers Branch School District have taken their own poetry to the next level getting their verses published in a national magazine.

Students entered a contest entitled Through Their Eyes by Young Writers USA. The contest prompted high school students to write a poem from someoneโ€™s point of view. Students were able to interpret the theme and idea as they wish. Out of over 5,000 entries into the contest, six current and former students from Ranchview High school were chosen to publish their poems in an upcoming publication for the organization.

The Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District is proud to announce that our wonderful community partner, Metrocrest Services, provides free meals to area families during the Thanksgiving holiday. With our CFBISD communities help, we can supply food to needing families this Thanksgiving holiday. Each family will receive an ample box of food based on their family's size.

All supplies collected will be distributed to low-income families living in Carrollton, Farmers Branch, Addison, Coppell, and Dallas in Denton County. Last year, Metrocrest Services distributed approximately 2,428 boxes of food to families during November and December.

Any food remaining after the holidays will be distributed through their Food Pantry, where Metrocrest Services assist an average of 750 families weekly with 25+ pounds of food per person. During the last year, the pantry distributed over 832,707 meals to help local families address food insecurities.

McKenzie Starr, a 2017 graduate of Creekview High School in the Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District and a current Industrial Distribution major with a business minor at Texas A&M University in College Station, took part in two impressive internships over the last six months.

Starr was a virtual intern with Motorola Solutions on the Worldwide Sales and Leadership team and is currently interning at the White House in Washington, D.C. She was only one of seven interns nationwide selected for Motorola's Sales Engineering Internship.

Starr is very passionate about serving women through Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). She plays a very active role within the College of Engineering at Texas A&M, serving on two organizations. Starr holds an Ambassador position for the Women in Engineering Program and serves on the Society of Women in Industrial Distribution.

Starr also belongs to the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority at Texas A&M where she takes on a leadership role in the organization. She is constantly empowering the women in the organization to reach their highest potential.

After her White House internship, she will return to her Junior Year at Texas A&M in College Station for the spring semester.

CFBISD is proud of its graduates. We congratulate McKenzie on all of her accomplishments and look forward to hearing about her future journey.

Creekview High School's Mock Trial Team in the Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District was invited to participate in Yale University's exclusive Bulldog Invitational Mock Trial Tournament October 17 through October 18. Only twenty-six elite teams from across the United States were invited to participate in this tournament. Teams were selected based on their past competitive success.

Creekview's Mock Trial Team competed during the weekend tournament in four competition rounds against each state's top teams. Each round's scoring was extremely close due to the quality of the teams involved in the tournament.

After the final round, Creekview's Mock Trial Team placed ninth overall and was the tournament's top-ranked Texas team. A member of Creekview's Mock Trial Team, Liza Frolova, earned a top attorney award during the awards assembly. Frolova was one of five out of approximately 60 attorneys who was recognized as a top attorney.

Creekview's Mock Trial team has a long history of tournament success, with several members earning top awards. Brian Sheguit, a Creekview social studies and Law Academy teacher, coaches the team.

According to the Vision Council of America, approximately 75% of people living in the United States need some form of vision correction. About 64% of those individuals wear glasses. Thanks to Essilor and Kids Vision for Life, business partners of the Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District, hundreds of remote learners in the school district will have new eyeglasses to correct their vision.

On Saturday, October 17, families in the CFBISD community participated in a free eye screening sponsored by the Essilor Corporation. Over 500 students were given a free vision screening, and over 100 students were fitted for new glasses. These glasses will be provided to students at no cost, thanks to our partners.

"Due to the great success of this event, we will set up another vision screening date with Essilor. Parent feedback has been very grateful and positive," said Sandra Lieck, Director of Health Services in CFBISD.

According to its website, Essilor's mission is improving lives by improving sight. This means we work every day to protect and correct eyesight by designing, manufacturing and distributing quality vision care solutions worldwide.

The company invests in raising awareness of the importance of good vision by supporting eyecare professionals, inventing new technologies and products, and supporting philanthropic initiatives so everyone can see life and all its detail with the best vision possible.

CFBISD thanks everyone who was involved in providing the gift of clear vision to the students of CFBISD. Thank you for making our community a better place. Together we can!

Students from Ranchview High School in the Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District received national recognition at the National Honors Mark of Excellence competition. Chandani Karow, freshman, and Esther Peng, junior, received outstanding soloist awards at the event.

Both players earned the national-level distinction for solos performed as part of their orchestra's performance given at the UIL Concert and Sightreading Contest earlier this year. Karow's viola solo was performed while still an eighth-grader as a member of the Barbara Bush Middle School Orchestra, a feeder program to Ranchview.

The award for "Outstanding Soloist" is an individual honor given in the Mark of Excellence competitions sponsored by The Foundation for Musical Excellence. These competitions are open to orchestras and other musical groups from anywhere in the United States. Congratulations to Chandani and Esther on their national recognition!

Great things are happening when it comes to innovative classrooms and buildings being built in CFBISD. You might have noticed driving on Kelly Blvd. that Sheffield Intermediate is being demolished to get ready for their new building. CFBISD is excited for our Sheffield family and their new school that is being built.

Not only will students have a new and innovative campus, but they will have a school that was constructed with an innovative, green process using recycled material. Jackson Construction Co., Inc.

Here is a CFBISD Bond Update on the beginning stages of the Sheffield Elementary bond project:

Middle schools in the Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District raised record-breaking funds for the American Heart Association. Perry Middle School and Blalack Middle School raised over $27,000 for physical education and athletic classes. In fact, Perry's donations totaled $15,989.30, making them the number one middle school in the state, and number four in the nation, in total raised funds. Blalack Middle School was close behind, raising $11,612.50 to rank second in the state of Texas and 10th in the nation.

All middle schools in CFBISD took part in this fundraising event. The funds will help support the American Heart Association and their effort to save lives from the number one killer globally, heart disease.

Before the American Heart Association existed, people across the United States with heart disease were thought to be doomed to complete bed rest โ€” or destined to imminent death. That has all changed thanks to the efforts of this great organization. According to their website, the AHA has grown into the nation's oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. The AHA has invested more than $4.5 billion in heart health research.

This fundraiser at our CFBISD middle schools is another shining example of how Together We Can. We appreciate the support and dedication of our CFBISD students and staff.

In its second year of existence, the Ranchview Jazz Band at Ranchview High School in the Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District earned incredible results at the ATSSB Region 2 All-Region Jazz Contest. All of their students participating in Jazz Band earned first chair results at the contest. These are the most students that have earned first chair in the history of Ranchview Band.

Other exciting news coming from the ATSSB All-Region Jazz Contest is that Ranchview had the most students in the region, six in total, advance to the area contest. All of these students now have the opportunity to compete to make the All-State Jazz Band. This honor would be the first in Ranchview Band history.

Vivian Field Middle School administrators and teachers made evening visits to more than fifteen homes of students to invite them back to attend CFBISD and Field MS. The home visits are part of a district-wide effort to reach students who may not have returned to school this year.

"We took school swag bags and brochures, highlighting all of the wonderful opportunities Vivian Field has to offer," said Kara Miller, Vivian Field Assistant Principal. The team's hard work has paid off as one family committed to coming back to Vivian Field. Another family commended the school for reaching out and stated they are thinking of returning. The team also spoke with students and families that currently attended the school.

"As an Admin team, we can all speak to what a powerful experience this was. Mr. Hunter, our Principal, has already begun planning our next home visits, including more staff to reach even more families!" said Miller.

Schools across CFBISD are hosting community walks to reach out to students who may not have returned after the COVID-19 pandemic in March. Administrators, teachers, and staff are working hard to ensure their neighborhood children get the best education possible during these unprecedented times.

Vivian Field Middle School is located at 13551 Dennis Lane in Farmers Branch. The school has many award-winning programs, including AVID and an incredible Dual Language program.
