Video+Story: Del Valle High Wins $10k in Powerade Contest

Thanks to a trio of Conquistadores, Del Valle High School’s athletics programs are among several schools nationwide to be awarded cash by sportsdrink brand Powerade.

Del Valle High School digital media students created the award-winning video for the “Power Your School” contest sponsored by Powerade.

Ranked #16 in the nationwide contest, the Del Valle athletic program will now receive $10,000.

According to YISD officials, Powerade launched the contest last summer to help student athletes by awarding a total of $1 million to high school athletic programs across the country.

The video was produced by Del Valle students Eileen Matamoros, Roberto Adame, and Jose Villalobos. Their video was the only winner in Ysleta ISD.

After the win was announced, the students thanked Coach Armendariz, Coach Marrufo, Coach Perales, and Coach Sanchez for their support in completing the project.

Ysleta ISD Expands “Supper Program” To 8 Schools Starting Monday

As part of its continuing efforts to support the wellness, health, and development of students, the Ysleta Independent School District (YISD) will expand its after-school “supper program” to eight campuses in the 2018-19 school year, beginning Monday, September 10.

Via a news release, YISD officials say, “Given the numerous high-school students who stay on campus after school for sports, theater, band, or other clubs, the supper program gives students access to a nutritional meal in the cafeteria before rehearsal or practice.”

The supper program, which provides free and nutritious meals to active students who remain on campus after school for extracurricular activities, will be offered at the following campuses:

Bel Air High School
Del Valle High School
Hanks High School
Parkland High School
Riverside High School
Ysleta High School
Eastwood Middle School
Young Women’s Leadership Academy

The supper meals are being offered at various times depending on the campus, but generally begin about 4 p.m. The meals are free of charge to children 18 years and younger, and are available for purchase by adults.

The supper program was first piloted in January 2017 at Ysleta High School, and expanded to include four schools by September 2017.

This program is part of YISD’s overall efforts to increase student access to healthy meals – this includes free breakfast for all students at all YISD campuses throughout the year.

The supper program is funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Child and Adult Care Food Program.

Video+Story: Del Valle High School Students Win Congressional App Challenge

U.S. Representative Will Hurd announced the district-wide winners for the Congressional App Challenge, a competition aimed at encouraging U.S. high school students to learn how to code by creating their own applications.

Del Valle High School students Emmanuel Oyervides and Lorenzo Holguin, both seniors, won the TX-23 title for their app, IDME, which takes attendance electronically as students enter the classroom.

“Our app was created with our teachers in mind,” explained Oyervides and Holguin in their app submission. “What our app is trying to accomplish is to make taking attendance faster and more efficient since we noticed that our teachers would take a very long time to take attendance, shortening our class time. Our app was able to successfully save time by speeding up the attendance process.”

“The future of our economy depends on our ability to educate students in STEM fields. With exposure to these types of careers early on, kids like Emmanuel and Lorenzo will go on to develop the disruptive technologies of tomorrow that will alter and potentially save lives,” said Hurd, who congratulated the students via FaceTime while in Washington, D.C. for votes. “I am particularly impressed at how these young leaders used technology to solve an everyday problem, and I will continue to champion initiatives that inspire students to pursue computer science.”

“We are so proud of Emmanuel and Lorenzo for this exciting accomplishment,” said Martin Armendariz, the students’ teacher. “At Del Valle High School, students are introduced to computer science, mechanical engineering, and electronics so that they can excel in STEM fields throughout life.

Emmanuel and Lorenzo have demonstrated their hard work and commitment to computer science time and time again as district champions of the UIL Computer Science competition, world competitors at the VEX robotics competition, and now as winners of the Congressional App Challenge.

They continue to work hard and inspire other students, and the whole Del Valle community is proud.”

The students will each receive $200 in cloud-based services, donated by Amazon Web Services, and will be congratulated in person by Rep. Hurd.

Their app will be put on display in the Capitol Building on and on
