CFB Special Olympics 2017

CFBISD Special Olympics 


On Mar. 23, the CFBISD All-Stars competed in the 2017 Special Olympics at Standridge Stadium. Athletes from several North Texas school districts made the journey to Standridge to participate in the games. Representatives from Congressman Kenny Marchant’s office; Carrollton Mayor, Matthew Marchant; Superintendent, Dr. Bobby Burns; and Miss Texas, Caroline Carothers spoke at the event.

While the wind was very gusty on an otherwise beautiful day, the athletes followed the Special Olympics motto: Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.
The CFBISD Educational Foundation is excited to launch a new summer camp for incoming 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. Our Summer STEM (Science, Technology, Education, Math) camp, Destination Discovery, engages middle school students with hand on activities in these subject areas and will be led by business professionals.
New Pre-K Options
For the 2017-2018 school year, CFB will offer full day, half day and tuition-supported Pre-K. Tuition-supported Pre-K (Pay for Pre-K) is a full day program that parents can choose to pay for their child to attend Pre-K even if they do not meet the federal requirements for the free program. Full day and tuition-supported are only available at specific campuses. Please use the flowchart to determine the program for your child.

Perry Robotics Club Competes at Oklahoma Regional Competition

The Perry Robotics Club traveled to Norman, Oklahoma this past weekend (March 25th) to compete in the multi-state Oklahoma Botball regional competition. Botball is an extremely challenging autonomous robotics competition for middle school and high school students. There are no division lines and middle school students must compete directly against high school students. The students have nearly 2 1/2 months to design, build, program, document and test up to two robots to compete in a very challenging competition. The robots the students build are 100% autonomous (no remote control) and are programmed by the students in a real-world programming language called "C". The competition is divided into three parts: seeding rounds, double elimination and a documentation and oral presentation. These scores are combined to get a team's overall score. DeWitt Perry sent 4 teams including a team composed exclusively of Perry alumni from Turner and Creekview called "Perry 2.0". When the dust settled, of the top 5 teams (out of 48), 3 were from CFBISD
