On Saturday we got to attend the Texas PTA Reflections State Awards Ceremony in Austin. Tinsley received the Award of Merit for Dance Choreography in Grades 3-5. She choreographed a dance to “Be The Change” by Britt Nicole (@itsbrittnicole). The theme was “Within Reach”. There was another award recipient from Lubbock ISD (Roscoe Wilson) at her ceremony. It was such an honor to be there among all of the talented musicians, artists, dancers, writers, photographers, and videographers. Texas had the most entries out of all the states and in her age group alone there were two National winners. This is an amazing program- I highly recommend for your child to participate next year- ask your PTA about the Reflections Contest! Thank you Texas PTA, Lubbock ISD, and Ramirez PTA. #thetexasdrakes #joseramirezelementary #lubbockisd #wearelubbockisd #ptareflections2018 #brittnicole #brittnicole #wearelubbockisd #thetexasdrakes #lubbockisd #ptareflections2018 #joseramirezelementary
Tinsley had a fun time at the Lubbock ISD’s Camp Invention last week. She dissected a robot, worked with two robots, designed and built her “dream mansion”, created a telescope, created a new game, played lots of games, explored with science concepts, and met new friends from other schools. We are so thankful to be a part of a school district that provides opportunities like this in STEM for elementary students. Blanton is ready to go next year! #thetexasdrakes #lubbockisd #campinvention2018 #wearelubbockisd #wearelubbockisd #thetexasdrakes #lubbockisd #campinvention2018

The Proclamation to the State Board of Education Student Hero Award came in the mail a few weeks ago. It was read at the State Board of Education Meeting a few weeks ago. In May at Tinsley’s school awards assembly, she was awarded the State Board of Education Student Hero Award for Region 15. There are 15 regions in Texas, and each region gives out an award each year. What an honor! The SBOE Region 15 Representative came to Tinsley’s school from Amarillo to give her the award. So proud to help put Lubbock ISD on the state map. So proud of Tinsley! #thetexasdrakes #lubbockisd #wearelubbockisd #joseramirezelementary #texasstateboardofeducation #studentheroaward #wearelubbockisd #studentheroaward #thetexasdrakes #lubbockisd #texasstateboardofeducation #joseramirezelementary
Week 5 of Tinsley’s summer was spent taking competitive swimming lessons from Lubbock ISD. Tinsley enjoyed reviewing and refining her competitive swimming skills. She had fun and did great! I have posted before about it, but if you are a Lubbock ISD Student (starting going into first grade), you can take swimming lessons from the Lubbock ISD swimming coaches. They are very affordable and super- great lessons. I HIGHLY recommend them! #thetexasdrakes #lubbockisd #peteragusaquaticcenter #peteragusaquaticcenter #thetexasdrakes #lubbockisd

On May 24 Ramirez Elementary had their School Awards Assembly and their Class Awards/Party. We are so proud of Tinsley- at the School Awards Assembly she was recognized for receiving one of the PTA Student Scholarships- she is using her scholarship to attend the two week Summer Workshop at Christ in the Arts. She was also recognized by LISD for improving on her MAP testing. There were 110 students in her school alone that received that medal recognition! She was also recognized for being a part of the Duke TIP program. In her classroom she was recognized for participating in the Six Flags Reading To Success Program and her classmates voted her to receive the International Baccalaureate attitude of Reflective award. During the school awards assembly she was also recognized by the Region 15 representative from Amarillo as the recipient of the State Board of Education Student Hero Award for Region 15 (which has about 10,000 students). She was nominated for this award by the Ramirez PTA president- such an honor for her to represent Ramirez Elementary, Lubbock ISD, and a Region 15. #thetexasdrakes #joseramirezelementary #lubbockisd #sboestudentheroaward #stateboardofeducation #ramirezpta #thetexasdrakes #lubbockisd #ramirezpta #joseramirezelementary #stateboardofeducation #sboestudentheroaward
On May 18 Tinsley ran for Student Council Secretary. She ran for Treasurer last year and did not make it, but wanted to try again. I was so proud of her, in a week of two days of STAAR testing, ballet rehearsals, and performances every night, she still made time to make her posters herself and write her speech. In fact, I was amazed that she wrote her speech in 6 minutes! I was so proud of all of the third and fourth graders at Ramirez- they had 28 students run for office- a tribute to the International Baccalaureate principle of Courageous! Even though she did not win, we are so proud of her! #thetexasdrakes #joseramirezelementary #lubbockisd #internationalbaccalaureate #joseramirezelementary #thetexasdrakes #lubbockisd #internationalbaccalaureate
The last two months of school Blanton and I went to eat lunch with Tinsley each week to see her and to help Blanton to get adjusted to Ramirez and kindergarten next year. One day Blanton wanted to wear the uniform that he will wear to school next year. He was so excited to be twinning with Tinsley. Three weeks ago the CDRC went on a Kindergarten Field Trip to Ramirez. The preschoolers got to ride a school bus; visit a kindergarten classroom; visit the library, art, music, P.E. and Mandarin Chinese classes; eat lunch in the cafeteria; and each brought a book home. Blanton was SO excited about kindergarten after his field trip. Thank you CDRC for including this as a field trip for your children. Thank you Ramirez for rolling out the red carpet for the CDRC! Kindergarten here we come! #thetexasdrakes #ttucdrc #joseramirezelementary #lubbockisd #ttucdrc #joseramirezelementary #thetexasdrakes #lubbockisd

Yesterday was the Ramirez Field Day. Wow! Coach Inmon really made it an amazing Olympic themed day. They competed as classes, grades, and some individual events. Tinsley chose to do the Softball Toss and won her event! Each class represented a country, Tinsley’s class was Brazil. They each made beautiful flags in art for the closing ceremony. These three fourth grade teachers rocked- they all went down the water slide with their classes! It was such a fun, community-building day. Thank you to all of the specialists and volunteers that made it happen. #thetexasdrakes #joseramirezelementary #lubbockisd #fieldday #joseramirezelementary #thetexasdrakes #lubbockisd #fieldday
On May 10 the Lubbock ISD School Board recognized all of the OAKE singers (28 total). Lubbock ISD had the most students in the OAKE National Choirs than any other school district in the nation! It was an honor to be a part of the 7:00 AM school board meeting. I loved how they ended the meeting- they told the students that they wanted to see them back being recognized for state and national awards in their future- a good challenge! Super proud of Tinsley and her hard work and thankful to her music teacher Ms. Newman for her dedication to her Ramirez students. Due to this experience, Tinsley now knows that she wants to pursue choir in middle school and high school. #thetexasdrakes #lubbockisd #oake2018 #joseramirezelementary #oake2018 #joseramirezelementary #thetexasdrakes #lubbockisd
