As part of the student voice initiative, GCISD will periodically feature news articles written by high school journalism students.
Because Principal Laura Koehler wanted to build the community between Grapevine Middle School's STEM
program and the remainder of the campus, the school commenced its first annual 'Hero Con' where students make posters using elements from each of their classes and apply them to everyday heroes.
"We basically kind of took the premise of Comic Con and we came up with HeroCon," Koehler said. "A lot of the kids have been dressing up and are very excited about it, but our STEM students are the ones that put in the work for the different projects that you're going to see."
Most posters are divided into four parts with specific research done in the students' core classes including Math, Social Studies, Science and ELA (English Language Arts).
