2021 Denison ISD Spelling Bee Champions

2021 Mayes Elementary Spelling Bee Winners

Friday, January 15, 2021 was an historic day for Denison ISD!  We hosted the first ever Bilingual Spelling Bee in Denison ISD.  Twelve 4th Graders from Mayes Elementary competed for the inaugural championship.

Rubi Espinoza emerged as the Champion, and Emmanuel Tellez was First Runner-Up.  Rubi will now represent Denison ISD at the Regional Spelling Bee on February 24 hosted by Region 10.

We are so appreciative of the extra efforts given to implement this academic endeavor.  Kudos to Mrs. Garza-Gonzalez for serving as our Bee Pronouncer, Ms. Lopez and Ms. Jones for serving as Judges, and Mrs. Hicks and Mrs. Gunter for keeping track of spelling rounds.  Mrs. Rodriguez did a superb job coordinating the preparation of our spellers.

Vision Forward for Downtown Denison, Texas

On February 18, 2014, a Downtown Visioning Session was hosted for the public by the City’s Main Street Advisory Board. The plan was intended to guide the City through the year 2020. Now, we would like to develop a new plan for 2030 with the input of shoppers, investors, loft dwellers, business owners, property owners, potential business owners, community partners, residents, and other interested parties. We want to learn more about what would make downtown a better place to have a business, shop, learn, be entertained, live, etc.

We are doing some long-range planning for Downtown Denison and need your assistance. We have a few questions that will take about 20 minutes of your time. Yes, this is an investment, but it is important!

We are looking 10 years down the road, and the survey will help guide how we make Downtown Denison the best it can possibly be!

SAVING FOR COLLEGE IN TEXAS

If college is part of your child’s future, we’ve got a plan to help save for it. The Texas Tuition Promise Fund® allows you to lock in current undergraduate tuition rates and schoolwide required fees at Texas public colleges and universities, excluding medical and dental institutions. Tuition units purchased in the plan may be used for all or a portion of these costs,

and our flexible payment options fit almost any budget.

 

It’s easy to open a Texas Tuition Promise Fund account.

And, the sooner you start, the more affordable a college education could be.
