Porter and Green Valley elementary students and counselors recently took the time to attend a basketball game at Calvary Christian Academy to cheer on the Gainesville State School team. BISD’s students demonstrated the District’s C.O.R.E. values of KINDNESS, EMPATHY and ACCEPTANCE as they cheered for boys who are paying the price for making poor choices. BISD’s students recognize the courage it takes for the State School students to work hard and change their lives for the better.

Porter Students Exemplify BISD’s C.O.R.E. Values


Third-grade students at Porter Elementary recently sponsored a service project for the whole school. From Jan. 11–22, they collected coins from students, staff, and community members. Their goal was to raise $2,016 for Shields Elementary in Red Oak, a librarian at Pearson Elementary in Garland ISD, and several families, all of which were impacted by the December tornados. So far, the campus has raised more than $2,931. Assistant Principal Chad Paris agreed to allow students to duct tape him to the wall if they met their goal. Since the school exceeded the goal, he is going to be duct taped to the cafeteria wall, most likely wearing princess attire.

Porter students exemplify BISD’s C.O.R.E. values of responsibility, empathy, kindness, honesty, acceptance, and courage.
