Senior Citizens Take a Closer Look at Mansfield ISD Schools

Remember the excitement that surrounded “show-and-tell” days in elementary school? It was a chance to take the stage and share something really cool with your classmates. In a way, the MISD Senior Tour is like a mega show-and-tell session for Mansfield ISD. It is an opportunity to give senior citizens from our community a closer look at some of the awesome things taking place in our schools.

Thirty-five senior citizens joined the second annual Senior Tour on Wednesday, May 22. The event covered a full school day, with scheduled visits to Ben Barber Career Tech Academy, Mansfield High School, Mary Orr Intermediate and Erma Nash Elementary.

Each stop on the tour featured an action-packed program, organized by MISD staff and students. The campuses rolled out the red carpet (literally) for the guests, and greeted them VIP-style with orchestras, cheerleaders, drum lines and lots of fanfare.

Throughout the day, the seniors had the opportunity to check out dozens of academic and extracurricular programs, including band and choir performances, science labs, math pentathlon games, tech apps, and even a Whiz Quiz “Challenge of the Decades” against the campus champs at Mary Orr.

On behalf of the Mansfield ISD Administration, thank you those who attended and helped coordinate this wonderful district event. The third annual Senior Tour will take place in 2014, featuring visits to several other district campuses. Stay tuned for details next spring!
