Carroll ISD Recognizes Campus Volunteers of the Year

The Carroll ISD and Board of Trustees officially recognized each of the district’s Campus Volunteers during the May 5 Regular Meeting of the Carroll ISD Board of Trustees. As with every year, each principal introduced the campus volunteer and spoke a few words about their work and dedication to the students and school. There was one volunteer per campus with the exception of Dawson Middle School. Principal Ryan Wilson offered an explanation that the school simply couldn’t select just one volunteer. The volunteers received gift cards and flowers as a token of appreciation.Volunteer Recognition 05.05.14

Dawson Dragons Learn the Art of Dueling

Cast away on the shores of a distant land, lost paramours and their unruly servants converge and conspire in William Shakespeare’s comedy, Twelfth Night. Four centuries after he wrote his plays, the works of Shakespeare continue to entertain and intrigue audiences of all ages.

As part of the Shakespearean experience, students at Dawson Middle School learned the history of fencing and the differences between stage combat and sport fencing. David Sierra, head coach at Cutting Edge Fencing Center in North Richland Hills, recently visited the campus to share the art of swordsmanship.  Students were able to participate in demonstrations that correlated to the study of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.

DMS Principal Ryan Wilson said, “It was a wonderful opportunity to transport our students back to medieval times and encourage literacy at our campus. Shakespeare’s language may seem foreign, but a duel by the blade is universal language indeed!”
