13 Ysleta ISD schools named to Texas Honor Roll

Officials with the Ysleta Independent School District announced that 13 of the district’s schools have been named to the 2018-2019 Texas Honor Roll, the most of any school district in the El Paso region.

“We are tremendously proud of our Honor Roll campuses, which continuously demonstrate the kind of innovative instruction and leadership that is needed to ensure student success,” said Ysleta ISD Superintendent Dr. Xavier De La Torre. “This recognition once again proves that our bold, challenging, and ambitious approach to public education is not only yielding high academic achievement, but setting a gold standard for the entire El Paso region.”

The program, presented by Educational Results Partnership (ERP), is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and districts that are improving student outcomes.

The Honor Roll campuses include: Alicia R. Chacon International School, Eastwood Heights Elementary School, Eastwood Knolls International School, Edgemere Elementary School, Glen Cove Elementary School, Mission Valley Elementary School, North Star Elementary School, Ramona Elementary School, REL Washington Elementary School, Scotsdale Elementary School, Valle Verde Early College High School, Vista Hills Elementary School, and Young Women’s Leadership Academy.

ERP, a nonprofit organization that applies data science to help improve student outcomes and career readiness, developed the 2018-2019 Honor Roll, and maintains the nation’s largest database on student achievement and utilizes this data to identify higher-performing schools and districts.

Schools that receive the ERP Honor Roll distinction have demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time, and a reduction in achievement gaps among student populations. For high schools, the ERP Honor Roll recognition also includes measures of college readiness.

In Texas, the ERP Honor Roll program is supported by numerous businesses and organizations, including the Texas Business Leadership Council, American Automobile Association (AAA) Texas, Macy’s, Wells Fargo, Chevron Corporation, and Enterprise Holdings Foundation.

A total of 855 public schools in Texas were recognized.

YISD honors Kindergartner battling illness, as she continues acts of kindness, community service

Earlier this week, the Ysleta ISD Board of Trustees honored a young student fighting a big battle with the heart of a superhero with the YISD President’s Award: Eastwood Heights Elementary School kindergartner Zoey Spinks.

Despite her tender age, Zoey already has years of experience raising awareness and money to fight cystic fibrosis – a rare, genetic disease that she has been diagnosed with.

While most adults might feel defeated or helpless after receiving this kind of diagnosis, Zoey’s realization of her illness has only inspired her to make the world a better place.

She is an active spokesperson for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation created by her mother to support El Pasoans with the disease.

Locally, Zoey helps promote the nationwide Great Strides Walk, the largest fundraising event for cystic fibrosis. She has recorded public service announcements about her disease and medications, made public presentations, conducted media interviews, and distributed flyers to raise awareness of the Great Strides Walk.

On the day of the event, Zoey not only rolls up her sleeves to help with set-up, but she participates with her team called, “Zipping for Zoey,” which has raised more than $30,000 in the past four years!

In addition, Zoey goes the extra mile to help others in need, she’s gone so far as to try and donate her allowance to a homeless woman she once saw in a wheelchair.

Instead, Zoey and her mom decided to create care packages with toiletries, socks, granola bars, and peanut-butter crackers, which Zoey hands out to the homeless at stoplights.

She also performs community service through her Girl Scout troop; and she recently won the Extraordinary Eagle Award at Eastwood Heights for demonstrating kindness in all she does.

Though she is still very young, Zoey has already proven that she is more than capable of making a profound difference in other people’s lives.

The President’s Award is given by the President of the Board of Trustees to a YISD student who has demonstrated exceptional and/or innovative, out-of-the-ordinary service to others, particularly those within the YISD community.
