SAN ANGELO, TX -- The San Angelo ISD has announced the selection of five SAISD campuses as Capturing Kids’ Hearts (CKH) National Showcase Schools for the 2020-2021 school year.
The CKH National Showcase School award recognizes campuses that go above and beyond in building a safe and welcoming environment where students are relationally connected and eager to learn.
This year 325 campuses from across the count were selected by the Flippen Group through a process that includes measuring key performance indicators, gathering campus data, and surveying staff and students.
The San Angelo schools that were chosen for the national honor were Bradford Elementary, Fannin Elementary, Goliad Elementary, Holiman Elementary, and Lake View High School.
Lake View High School was one of only 8 high schools selected in Texas.
In the announcement, SAISD commended the leadership of the five principals leading the selected campuses.
- Zach Ramirez of Lake View High School
- Bertha Carrasco of Bradford Elementary
- Cathy Humble of Fannin Elementary
- Shannon Klepac of Goliad Elementary
- Ginger Luther of Holiman Elementary
“We are excited that we were named a CKH National Showcase School, which demonstrates how our school community is strong and centered around relationship building. Everyone involved is dedicated to making connections and striving to create an environment each day that is welcoming and students have a positive start to the day! As the Principal of Lake View school I am proud of this accomplishment and look forward to future success at Lake View,” said Principal Zach Ramirez.
“I am proud to work in a district that is committed to a focus on the ‘whole child.’ These five campuses were some of the first to receive the Capturing Kids’ Hearts professional learning experience in SAISD. The campus leadership teams have been integral in embedding these practices into the school climate and culture in order to elicit this level of recognition,” said SAISD Director of Social-Emotional Learning Lindy Lyles. “I look forward to the continued partnership and the district-wide focus on relationships as the core of our mission to develop future-ready graduates."
