Special Game Day

More than 500 students and volunteers from nine separate Spring Branch ISD elementary schools took part in a recent Student Appreciation Game Day. At this event, many young students who had not ever observed a football game in person watched athletes from Northbrook and Spring Woods high schools compete Nov. 10 at Tully Stadium.

One reason for the special event was to expose the young students to future opportunities in sports and high schools that they might attend.
The following elementary schools took part in the special Game Day program: Cedar Brook, Edgewood, Hollibrook, Pine Shadows, Ridgecrest, Spring Branch, Terrace and Woodview.

During the special event, students were even allowed to walk onto the playing field before the game and support team members at Northbrook and Spring Woods high schools.
“In conversations with different students, you heard conversations like, ‘That is going to be me one day playing for Spring Woods High!’Another student said, ‘I think that I want to be Tigerette!” reports one event organizer, Health-Fitness instructor Samuel Karns.

SBISD’s Athletics and Health-Fitness departments partnered to create the special Game Day event.
In a separate event earlier this fall, 10 students from five elementary schools attended the District XC (Cross Country) Track Meet. Students attended from the following elementary schools: Bunker Hill, Meadow Wood, Nottingham, Rummel Creek and Westwood.
