Bells ISD meeting focuses on campus improvement

BELLS — In last month’s Bells Independent School District Board of Trustee’s meeting, the topics of setting new goals for the District’s students and faculty and improving student success were raised. This month’s meeting, held Monday night, focused on how to reach those goals with campus improvement plans.

Little cabin offers big lessons for SHS students

Out behind Sherman High School, there is a cabin. It’s a little snug at 460 square feet, but there is plenty of room for one or two people to live, cook, sleep and bathe. The fireplace and ceder trim give it the feel of a hunter’s retreat, and not a square foot is wasted. It is impressive that such a small space feels so liveable but even more impressive that the cabin was designed and built by high school students.

Learning is on the menu at Bearcat Bistro

The Bearcat Bistro is perhaps as intimate and trendy a place to eat lunch as there is in Sherman. The restaurant seats 40 people at the most. The walls are covered with paintings from local artists and hand-arranged floral bouquets adorn the tables. The menu changes constantly, allowing the talented young chefs to explore different cuisines. And it’s easy to hear the bell, so none of the chefs will be late to algebra.

DISD dedicates Henry Scott Middle School

The old building at 1901 South Mirick Avenue in Denison has been a school for 60 years. Generations of Denison residents attended high school there, until the new and improved campus opened this year. The building now has new students, a new interior and, as of Thursday evening, a new official name: Henry Scott Middle School.

SHS students get ready for homecoming

Tuesday may have been a crisp, cool first day of autumn, but you couldn’t tell that inside Sherman High School. The hallways and classrooms were filled with students who looked as if they had just stumbled in from a tropical vacation. Loud Hawaiian shirts, leis, flip flops and wide-brimmed hats were ubiquitous, and old cameras and binoculars dangled from necks.
