“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.” – Helen Keller
Many different research studies have found that engaging students in the learning process and in their community increases their focus, attention and motivation. The goal of the FISD Office of Engagement is to develop and institute programs and events that engage students in their interests and keep them involved with the school community and their fellow peers. The model is based on the Student Affairs Department at the collegiate level and those programs are being adapted to be accessible by all students in K-12th grade.
As we begin this journey to engage the students of Forney ISD we are starting with a few different areas. We will be expanding the esports program into the middle school level to give more students access to the benefits of technology, communication and teamwork. We will also be adopting the Summer STEAM Camps program to make them accessible throughout the year as after-school programs. In addition, we are launching an intramural sports program to engage students in after-school athletic activities that they may not have access to at this time.
To get involved, simply click on the left-hand side of the page on the program you are interested in learning more about. When you are ready to register for an intramural sports program or STEAM Camp, you can click on the link on the page and you will be redirected to our registration site. Through this site you can register for all of our programs (with the exception of esports) and submit payment through the online payment portal.
