We can proudly say we are finished with the murals at Victoria Christian Assistance Ministries (VCAM), 108 N. Liberty. We would love for you to take a tour and see what our TPSP students have done for their “In the Community” project. Our students have not only used their talents for this gift to our community, but learned quite a bit about what it means to be without food or shelter, and those in our own area that are helping that cause. Susan Whitefield is the Executive Director of VCAM, and will be happy to show off the building. Thank you!

Two West HS students, Megan Wilmon, a senior, and Alysia Gomez, a sophomore, competed in the UIL piano solo competition on Sat., Feb. 8th, at East HS.
- Megan earned a I rating on her Debussy piece and
- Alysia earned a II playing Beethoven.
This is the first year any VISD piano keyboard students have entered the UIL competition so we are very proud of both Megan and Alysia for their hard work and dedication to learning their pieces!
We placed in 4 out of 5 entries. The entire contest had over 500 entries in various categories. 2 and 1/2 days worth of folklorico style dancing, represents almost all states of Mexico.
It was a great opportunity for the students and much exposure to lots of dance from many states in Mexico. It truly enhanced their understanding of the culture and this beautiful genre of dance.

Additionally, Crystal Dowdy has been running the local Solo & Ensemble competition at Howells Middle School for several years now. Running this annual event requires much work and Crystal Dowdy does so with a song in her heart.
