Denton High School will host its annual Orchestra String Fling at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 7, giving attendees a glimpse at about a dozen award-winning student orchestra groups. The event showcases orchestras for Denton High and its feeder elementary and middle schools.
Discovery Education honored two Denton ISD elementary principals for their outstanding work. Adkins Elementary’s Emily McLarty and Newton Rayzor Elementary’s Dr. Happy Carrico were named to Discovery’s 2014 Great Principals list on Nov. 2, a list that included just 73 campus leaders from across the nation.
Newton Rayzor Elementary was recently awarded a $3,000 grant from the Dollar General Literary Foundation, which the school will spend on technology to aid in reading. Dina Wuenschel, an interventionist teacher for bilingual reading and math, applied for the grant to help her bilingual students and those learning English.
