Cherry, Holmes are named National Showcase Schools

   Cherry and Tenie Holmes elementary schools have each received a Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase School award for the 2018-2019 school year from the Flippen Group. 
   Several years ago, both campuses began an initiative to transform their schools into  emotionally safe and relationally connected places for students, staff, and parents. 
   After researching programs used by some of the nation’s most successful schools, Bay City Independent School District chose to join hands with the Flippen Group to bring Capturing Kids’ Hearts to the entire district. Teachers and staff learned processes to increase students’ connectedness with both peers and adults on campus.
