And the award goes to...
ALICE CONTRERAS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
The Fort Worth Independent School District is proud to recognize Alice Contreras Elementary School for having the Campus Website of the Week for August 20-24, 2012. Congratulations!
"Student success is directly related to family and community involvement, said Campus Web Manager Pamela Smith. "By posting relevant information and helpful resources on our website, we can facilitate that involvement."
Campus Website of the Week is designed to recognize schools for their online efforts to inform, engage and entertain members of the campus community.
Each month, the District issues a challenge to encourage schools to utilize their campus website to communicate with students, parents and more. Finalists are selected for Campus Website of the Week, with the overall winner taking home the coveted Webby Award.
The challenge in August asks schools to share detailed back-to-school information on the campus website.
The Contreras campus website delivers, with specifics on Meet the Teacher Night and the transition to Thinking Maps - a specific set of eight visual tools designed to teach users how to think and organize their thoughts. The school believes the program will impact teaching and learning by helping everyone become better life-long learners.
Faculty and staff are also asking stakeholders to like them on Facebook -www.facebook.com/AliceContrerasElementary - to stay up-to-date on events and activities during the 2012-2013 school year.
"Contreras Elementary wants to increase parent and community involvement this school year," Smith said. "We believe that by keeping up-to-date and relevant information on our website and our new Facebook page, we can accomplish this goal."
