Online registration begins soon, transfer window open

Online enrollment for all students for the 2018-19 school year will begin April 16, and applications for transfers are now available.

As with last year, the online enrollment process is handled through PowerSchool, which means the majority of information will already be filled out for returning students. Families of returning students should wait to receive a snap code via email before enrolling for next year.

For those interested in applying for a transfer to another Northwest ISD school, the transfer application process is now open and will last through May 15. Please note that students who are entering fifth and eighth grade and slated to be rezoned in 2018-19 have the option to stay at their current schools if desired. Those students will still need to submit a transfer application. 

These are the only transfer applications that, barring attendance or disciplinary issues, are automatically approved; all other applications are considered on a case-by-case basis.

Eaton High School's one-act play company has advanced to the regional round of the UIL competition, the school's best result so far in its brief three-year history.

Competing in the 5A Area 2 contest on Friday, March 30, Eaton performed "The Insanity of Mary Girard," a play by Lanie Robertson. In addition to the group advancing, several individuals received accolades for their work. For acting, senior Cassie Weaver was named to the all-star cast, while senior Joe Rhoads and junior Clark Jones were named as part of the honorable mention all-star cast. Junior Madison Shelby was named best technician for her work on the play.

By advancing, Eaton is one of just 144 schools remaining at the regional level of competition for a chance at qualifying for the state competition. When the UIL's one-act play contest began, 1,246 schools across Texas performed. Eaton will compete at the 5A Region I competition at Texas Tech on Monday, April 16, for a chance to advance to the state competition.

The Northwest ISD TechnoCamp logo

Registration for seven summer technology camps hosted by Northwest ISD is now open, providing students with opportunities to learn about popular topics at all elementary and middle school grade levels.

Three $95 camps are available for elementary-aged students, while four $160 camps are available primarily for middle-school-aged students. The latter camps are more expensive because they come with kits students will keep, such as drone or Raspberry Pi kits.

Each camp lasts three hours per day and takes place Monday to Thursday over the summer, with dates varying by camp and session. All campers will receive a free T-shirt as part of their participation in a TechnoCamp.

All camps will be held at Pike Middle School, located at 2200 Texan Drive in Justin/Fort Worth, featuring both morning and afternoon sessions. To learn more about each camp or register for a camp, visit technocamp.nisdtx.org.
