Our Great City
Keller ISD will hold its 2015 Commencement Ceremonies on Saturday, May 30, at College Park Center on the campus of the University of Texas at Arlington. UTA's state-of-the-art arena will host the graduates of the four KISD high schools for the second consecutive year. The ceremonies will feature multiple video boards and the events will also be streamed live online at www.KellerISD.net/GraduationLive.
The schedule for this year's graduations is as follows:
The 19th annual Birdville Cemetery Reunion was held on May 16, 2015. This year’s event featured a tour of the historic cemetery led by Bill Reeves with the Birdville Cemetery Association, as well as the living history of the early days of Tarrant County seen through the eyes of Republic of Texas President, Sam Houston, as told by Jack Edmondson. Jack is a retired history teacher who has authored several books and over fifty magazine articles about Texas history. With its first burial dated back to 1852, Birdville Cemetery is one of the oldest cemeteries in Tarrant County. Notable figures resting there include Benjamin Franklin Barkley, who was the first judge in Tarrant County, and Archibald Franklin Leonard, who helped to build and organize Tarrant County.
Residents with loved ones who may need special assistance if they are alone or in an emergency may now register with the Keller Police Department through the Take Me Home Program. Originally developed by the Pensacola, Florida PD, Take Me Home is intended to assist those who are unable to communicate or properly identify themselves in the event they become disoriented and those who may act in a manner that could be misinterpreted by first responders.
The program is a free service for any Keller resident who has difficulty communicating, though it is particularly intended to serve individuals with Autism, Down Syndrome, or developmental or cognitive disabilities as well as senior citizens who may suffer from dementia or Alzheimer’s.
How it Works
Keller ISD AVID programs are excited to host this year's "Every Step for Autism" 5K Fun Run and Walk on Saturday, May 23 at Fossil Ridge High School.
