Ballet Folklórico Arrives At San Elizario’s Alfonso Borrego Sr. Elementary

San Elizario ISD’s Alfonso Borrego Sr. Elementary has a colorful, new team set to take center stage during the upcoming holidays.

Griselda Ramos, 4th grade bilingual teacher at Borrego Elementary, is also the instructor of the new after school folklórico club called Miztli Folklórico.

“I am really excited to have the opportunity to introduce the art of folklórico to the students of Borrego Elementary,” Ramos said. “These type of programs helps build their self-esteem and also teaches them about respect and responsibility.”

The club consists of 10 boys and 10 girls of grade levels 1st through 6th and practice is held twice a week after school for about an hour each day.

Their latest performance was at the school’s annual Thanksgiving Luncheon where they performed in front of a large crowd of parents.

“You should have heard the round of applause they received,” said Norma Casillas, Principal at Borrego Elementary.

“I am so proud of them. It took a lot for them to get up on stage and dance in front of so many people. I am delighted to have a folklórico club at our campus because I know it is going to be very popular with our students in the years to come.”

“When you dance folklórico, it is all about having fun. It is a form of entertainment,” Ramos said. “I always tell my students to try new things because they never know how good they are until they give it a try. Once they see that anything is possible, they become more confident.”

Miztli Folklórico’s next performance will be on December 18th for Borrego Elementary’s Holiday Extravaganza event.

San Elizario ISD To Expand Parking at Loya Primary School

Construction is underway for more parking spaces at Lorenzo G. Loya Primary School in San Elizario.

“The need for additional parking became a priority for Loya Primary when the City of San Elizario passed an ordinance that prohibits vehicles from parking adjacent to any public school extending 50 feet passed the school property line,” said George Luevano, Director of Support Services at San Elizario ISD. “This means parents can no longer park on the side of the road near or across the primary school. Those who refuse to abide by this ordinance, are subject to citations and fines.”

To help ease the matter, district personnel met with San Elizario ISD’s Board of Trustees and proposed adding more parking to the primary school. After much consideration and review, the Board gave the green light to proceed with the construction project of more parking spaces.

“Approximately 100 new spots will be available for parents,” Luevano said. “It is going to cost us about $420,000 and this money comes from bond savings realized from the original bond projects that were approved by community voters in November 2014.”

Ruby Martinez is the mother of child who attends Loya Primary and she says more parking spaces will make things much easier for her and other parents.

“Every time the school has an awards assembly, parent-teacher conference, or any other school celebration, parking gets extremely full and it sometimes takes us several minutes trying to find a place to park,” Martinez said. “With the upcoming parking lot, we will no longer have to park our vehicles far and make the long walk.”

The project is expected to reach completion February of 2019.

San Elizario High School’s Library Now Open To The Community

On Wednesday officials with San Elizario ISD announced that San Elizario High School’s (SEHS) library is officially open to the community.

“The availability of libraries to San Elizario citizens is scarce, therefore, our library is a true treasure,” said Belinda Muñoz, SEHS librarian.

“The library provides a variety of reading materials for community members, such as an assortment of fiction and nonfiction books, which range from early childhood to adult.”

San Elizario residents can check-out up to six books, use the computers, and print documents for a fee of 25 cents per page.

In order to check-out books, visitors will need to present their ID with a current San Elizario address and a utility bill with a current San Elizario address as well.

For the use of computers and printers, visitors will need to fill-out and sign an Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) form.

Georgina Diaz, Instructional Officer for San Elizario ISD, says that the SEHS community library is an integral component of the city of San Elizario.

“I encourage members of the San Eli community to take advantage of our community library. Literacy improves the future of everyone in society, and it is critical to individual and community well-being,” Diaz said.

The SEHS community library is located at 13981 Socorro Road and is open from 8am to 5pm, Monday thru Friday.

UTEP & EPCC Social Work Interns Help SEISD’s Alarcon Elementary

Lorenzo G. Alarcon Elementary is proud to open its doors to students in the Social Work Internship Program from the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) and El Paso Community College (EPCC).

“We are always so grateful every time UTEP and EPCC sends us interns,” said Nora Garcia, Counselor at Alarcon Elementary. “We love having them here. They serve as additional support to our students, parents, and staff and make an incredible difference in our students’ social and emotional growth. Interns will always be welcomed here with open arms.”

The interns sent to Alarcon Elementary are completing their Associates, Bachelors, and Masters degrees in Social Work at the end of the 2018-2019 school year. They made the commitment to complete 16 hours of internship per week for a total of 240 hours.

Both UTEP and EPCC have assigned several of their students to complete their internship hours at San Elizario ISD’s Alarcon Elementary.

“So far this experience has been very humbling because I have never worked with kids in a school setting before,” said Diana Romero, a Social Work major at UTEP.

“The environment at Alarcon Elementary is very welcoming and the students and staff are all so friendly and full of energy. I am having a great time here.”

The honor is awarded on behalf of the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS).

“It is truly an honor to receive this award once again for what WE have achieved,” Morales said.

San Eli ISD Teacher Using Real-World Law Enforcement, Investigation Techniques to Prep Students

San Elizario ISD Career and Technical Education (CTE) teacher Dr. Ana Luna uses her high school classroom to prepare her students for future careers in technology, business, health sciences and engineering.

As a forensics and biomedical sciences CTE teacher, Luna exposes her students to techniques used in real world law enforcement and crime investigations.

Her lessons cover topics related to the collection of evidence including entomology, anthropology, ABO blood typing, fingerprinting, DNA, case studies, hair analysis and ballistics.

In addition to her regular classroom teaching duties, Luna is also leading by example, as she recently obtained her doctorate in education; a perfect example of life-long learning for her students.

“There are a lot of kids in this community that have a story like mine,” Luna said. Born in Mexico and raised by her grandparents, Luna did not have the opportunity to go to college until she moved to the United States.

“I come from really humble beginnings. I struggled with the culture and language, but knew how important it was to get an education. Now, I strive to instill the same confidence in my students, that it doesn’t matter where you come from – you can still reach your full potential.”

“It’s fantastic to have Dr. Luna as a teacher in our CTE program,” said Michael Rodriguez, CTE Coordinator at San Elizario ISD. “To have someone teaching these courses who has achieved that level of education and is continuing as a lifelong learner, you can’t ask for a better role model.”

SEISD officials add, “Through partnerships with local colleges and universities, these CTE courses allow students the opportunity to earn dual credit, articulated credit, industry certifications and licensure while completing their high school degree.”

San Elizario Preps For A New Football Season, With New Coach, New Facility and New Attitude

There is a new kind of energy in the air in San Elizario. This time it comes in the form of high school football, something the San Elizario High School (SEHS) Eagles have not had an opportunity to be excited about in a long time.

The Eagles, who finished with a 0-10 record in 2017, are surprisingly optimistic for the 2018 season.

It starts with the hiring of a new head football coach, Ray Aguilar Jr. Coach Aguilar has instilled a set of core values that are posted just about everywhere you look in the hallways of the new Vicente Delgadillo, Jr. Field House.

“When my kids or coaches are asked about SEHS Football, they will tell you about the core values. It is the backbone of this program— it is who we are,” said Aguilar. The core values are Energy, Accountability, Grit, Love & Family, and Effort.

Since Aguilar’s arrival in May 2018, the Eagles have seen some major changes including record numbers in student participation, a new culture of positivity amongst athletes and coaches, the development of a freshman football team, the hiring of a well experienced coaching staff, success in the 7 on 7 passing league, and even a new logo.

The change in culture combined with the return of several starters could lead to a winning season for the Eagles.

The defense will be led by their talented senior safety Nathan Guerrero. The offense returns some serious fire power in running back Ray Acevedo who will line up behind a young but powerful offensive line. Senior Quarterbacks Jacob Lopez and Chris Olvera will compete for the starting job.

“We’ve been working really hard this offseason to win a district championship,” said Acevedo. “The talent and energy is here we just need to give our best effort. Our coaches are helping us get 1% better every day and when the season is here we will turn it around.”

It is evident that Coach Aguilar has the Eagles believing in change. With all the effort, excitement, and change that is evident in San Elizario, it would no surprise to see the Eagles win their first district championship since 1999.

The Eagles will kick-off their season at home versus Riverside High School on August 31st at 7:00 PM.
