TEAMWORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK: Ingleside High School student CTE Departments teamed up to make a final product (which... who wouldn't love??).... COOKIES. The Engineering class made a customized 3D printed cookie cutter for the Ingleside High School Culinary Arts Program students to use in their dessert catering order prepared for the Chemours 50th Anniversary celebration! This is a perfect "real world" example for students to learn about how different departments of an organization work together for a final product or goal! Ingleside Prepared, World Ready!
Don't forget, Mustangs... Monday, September 25th is a Student Holiday.

GIRLS WHO STEM: Students from Ms. Kilburn's STEM classes at Leon Taylor Middle School went to Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi to tour the science and engineering departments. Female students from the University pursuing degrees in those fields were present to talk to the girls and provide motivational information for the girls who are interested in STEM career fields. The next stop was at Chemours, where students were treated to lunch. At the site, female engineers and scientists had an opportunity to talk to the girls and provide insight on what their career field is like. After lunch, they got to tour the plant and see what work life looked like on site. The students had an exciting day and left feeling more encouraged as female students to pursue STEM careers!

ONE WEEK AWAY: Preparing for the first day of school can be exciting, while still creating some nervousness for both parents and students. Below are 10 helpful tips to make the transition into a new school year smoother: For Parents 1. Establish a school routine: Start adjusting your child's sleep schedule a few weeks before school starts, so they can wake up refreshed and ready for the early morning routine. 2. Get organized: Purchase school supplies and necessary materials in advance. Label your child's belongings, including backpacks, lunchboxes, and clothing, to avoid mix-ups. Make sure to join us at the Back to School Bash on Friday, August 11th for FREE back to school supplies, backpacks, and haircuts! 3. Visit the school: If possible, visit the school with your child before the first day. Familiarize them with the surroundings, classrooms, and playground, which can help ease anxiety. Both IPS and GJM will hold Meet the Teacher Events. See IISD's district event calendar for details (Accessible through the district homepage under 'Events'). 4.Talk about expectations: Discuss what your child can expect on the first day, such as meeting new friends, following rules, and engaging in different activities. For Students 5. Get enough rest: Ensure you get enough sleep the night before. A well-rested mind will help you stay focused and alert during the day. 6. Pick out your outfit: Choose your first-day outfit the night before to avoid any last-minute wardrobe decisions and reduce morning stress. 7. Pack your bag: Pack your school bag with all the necessary supplies and any documents your parents need to provide to the school. 8. Eat a healthy breakfast: Start your day with a nutritious breakfast to fuel your body and mind for the day ahead. 9. Be on time: Aim to arrive a bit early to school on the first day to allow time to find your classroom and settle in. 10. Stay positive: Embrace the excitement of starting a new school year and meeting new friends. Try to approach the day with a positive attitude. We can't wait to see all Mustangs back at school on Tuesday, August 15th!
