Congratulations to Marsha Perry for being named principal at Walker Creek Elementary. She is replacing Kaynee Correoso, who is leaving the District at the end of the 2016–17 school year.
The Rainbow Mustaches from Walker Creek Elementary recently participated in the Texas state Destination Imagination Engineering Challenge: In It Together. They had to build more than one structure made of only balsa wood and glue and test it by placing weights on the structures. Their structures weighed 30.3 grams and held 745 pounds, earning them a weight held ratio of 32. The structures did not break after 745 pounds, but they ran out of space on the tester pole. They also presented a story of how two nations worked together to solve an international issue. Team members include: Leo Pierce, Nate Bolstad, Luke Bolstad, Sage Demaree, Mary Connolly, Toni Sentell and Janson Perry. Team managers are Katie Pierce and Becky Bolstad. #BISDShines
Congratulations to all the teams for a great competition! #BISDShines
