Chili Cook-Off At Hopkins

What better way of celebrating Texas Independence Day than to have a cook-off of the "official state dish of Texas"...CHILI!  Along with the chili, the school had all the student projects that celebrated the Republic of Texas and the State of Texas.  Each grade level had a special cheer for the chili cook-off judges as they tasted each grade's hot entry to the contest.  The panel of judges included Kirby Mayor Tim Wilson, Kirby Fire Department Chief Kevin Riedel, Officer Carmona from the Kirby Police Department, Carmen De La Rosa, Children's Minister of LifeChurch San Antonio and Carlos Cabasos, Assistant Principal at Kirby Middle School. After lots of water to cleanse and sooth the palette from some spicy, but delicious entries, the winning chili came from the 2nd grade called "Chili, Chili, Bang Bang."  2nd place went to Kinder with its "Chil-garten Champion Chili."  3rd place was the 1st grade entry called "Great Bowls of Fire."  Congratulations everyone...now where are the Rolaids?

It's History...In Person At Coronado ES

History can be such a fascinating subject if it's presented right...well how about having the history makers tell you what happened themselves.  Bill Perryman of History In Person Theater is known across the state for his presentations that make history come alive.  He paid a visit to Coronado ES as George Washington and the students loved it.  Nothing like hearing about the crossing of the Delaware River and being the first President of the United States to keep your audience hooked.  Mr. Perryman is well known not only for his wonderful portrayals of historic figures, but he also is an excellent presenter, teacher and local tour guide.  Our many thanks for his visit.
