Black History Month

 In Honor of Presidents day let's talk about Barack Hussein Obama.  He is an American attorney and politician who served as the 44th president of the United States from 2009 to 2017.  He was the first African-American president of the United States. He previously served as a U.S. senator from Illinois from 2005 to 2008 and an Illinois state senator from 1997 to 2004.  Obama's election in 2008 signified that our country was moving in the right direction -- a country who once had African slaves had finally elected an African-American to be president. 


Wednesday 2/23


Today’s American history fact is about Kamala Harris, who is an American politician and attorney.  She is the 49th and current vice president of the United States. Kamala Harris was born in Oakland , California and her mother was Tamil Indian and her father is a British Jamaican.  She is the first female vice president and the highest-ranking female official in U.S. history, as well as the first African American and first Asian American vice president.



Today’s American history fact is Colin Luther Powell was an American politician, statesman, diplomat, and United States Army officer who served as the 65th United States Secretary of State from 2001 to 2005. He was the first African-American secretary of state.  Powell was born in New York City to parents who had immigrated from Jamaica. He also participated in ROTC and received a commission as an Army second lieutenant upon graduation in June 1958. He was a professional soldier for 35 years, during which time he held many command and staff positions and rose to the rank of four-star general. He was Commander of the US Army Forces Command in 1989.




Today’s American history fact is Condoleezza Rice is an American diplomat, political scientist, civil servant, and professor who is the current director of the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. Rice served as the 66th United States secretary of state from 2005 to 2009 and as the 20th national security advisor from 2001 to 2005. A member of the Republican Party, Rice was the first female African-American secretary of state and the first woman to serve as National Security Advisor. Until the election of Barack Obama as president in 2008, Rice and her predecessor, Colin Powell, were the highest-ranking African Americans in the history of the federal executive branch (by virtue of the secretary of state, was standing fourth in the presidential line of succession)

Track

Our Sub Varsity Track teams competed at the Langham Creek meet last night and came away with a clean sweep. All 3 teams were in a 212 zone, scoring major points against some tough opponents. The Varsity Teams will compete at Cy Springs High School in the CFISD Invitational tonight, so come out to watch.

Boy's Track

The Freshman and JV boys were meet champions yesterday at Langham Creek sub varsity meet!

Women's History Month

Throughout our history, despite hardship, exclusion and discrimination, women have strived and sacrificed for equity and equality in communities across the country. Women were stewards of the land and continue to lead the fight for climate justice. They also fought to end slavery, advocate for civil rights and pass the Voting Rights Act. Suffragists helped pass the 19th Amendment to the Constitution so that no American could be denied a vote on the basis of sex. Every March, Women's History Month provides an opportunity to honor the generations of trailblazing women and girls who have built our Nation, shaped our progress and strengthened our character as a people.


Today's work in America is being led by the most diverse and gender-balanced Cabinet in American History, including the first woman and woman of color to serve as Vice President; the first woman ever to serve as Treasury Secretary and Director of National Intelligence; the first Native American woman to serve as a Cabinet Secretary; women are leading the Departments of Commerce, Energy, Housing and Urban Development, along with the Small Business Administration and the Office of Management and Budget. Women of color are representing America on the world stage as United States Ambassador to the United Nations and the United States Trade Representative as well as leading the Council of Economic Advisers in the White House. So Women, please believe that you can, because one day you will!

Black History Month

Music is known as the great unifier, and not only are we unified in our lifetime, through music, we are unified across millennia and generations.  One of the most influential musicians in any genre, Michael Jackson’s impact is undeniable – though his later career was dogged by controversy. Jackson started out with his brothers in the Motown act Jackson 5, before going solo and releasing timeless albums such as the R&B-infused Off The Wall and more traditional pop records the likes of Thriller and Bad. Throughout his life, Jackson was always at the forefront of musical trends, and he redefined the music video format with Thriller, which remains one of the best music videos of all time. His discography more than earns him the title of King Of Pop.


Music does not discriminate against culture, religion, gender, sexuality. race or even time and, therefore, not only is it a great unifier it is also a truly universal language. Drake is an artist who has fans of all backgrounds dancing to his music.  He is a Canadian rapper, singer, and actor. He is among the world's best-selling music artists, with over 170 million records sold. Drake is ranked as the highest-certified digital singles artist in the United States. He has won four Grammy Awards, six American Music Awards, a record 29 Billboard Music Awards,and holds several Billboard Hot 100 chart records. Drake has the most top 10 singles (54), the most charted songs (258),[17] the most simultaneously charted songs in one week (27), the most Hot 100 debuts in one week (22), and the most continuous time on the Hot 100 (431 weeks). 


Darius Carlos Rucker (born May 13, 1966) is an American singer and songwriter. He first gained fame as the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of rock band Hootie & the BlowfishRucker signed to Capitol Nashville as a country music singer, releasing the album, Learn to Live that year. Its first single, "Don't Think I Don't Think About It", made him the first black artist to reach number one on the Hot Country Songs charts since Charley Pride in 1983.  In 2009, he became the first African American to win the New Artist Award from the Country Music Association, and the second African American person to win any award from the association.

Black History Month

A big piece of Cy-Fair ISD history is the Carverdale School which was a school for black students from 1925-1970. It was located where Highway 290 meets Beltway 8. The school first opened in 1925 in a one-room farmhouse that was donated by a German dairy farmer. Teachers were known for encouraging students to attend colleges such as Prairie View A&M University and Texas Southern University after graduation. They were also committed to offering a range of extracurricular activities, including student council, National Honor Society, yearbook staff, Spanish Club, Future Homemakers of America, Future Teachers of America, choir, band, cheerleading, drill team, football, basketball, baseball and track. The Carverdale Cobras clinched two consecutive state basketball titles in 1965 and 1966. The school closed in 1970 after the district was court ordered to desegregate in 1967.


Frederick Douglass "Fritz" Pollard and Bobby Marshall were the first two African American players in the NFL in 1920. Fritz Pollard became the first African American head coach in the National Football League. Pollard went to Brown University, majoring in chemistry and he was the first black football player at Brown University. Pollard later became the first black running back to be named to Walter Camp's All-American team.


Marlin Briscoe was the first African American to start as an American Football League quarterback in 1968 while playing for the Denver Broncos. Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes - are the only two African American quarterbacks in the NFL's 100 year history to outright win the MVP award. Cam Newton was the co-MVP with Peyton Manning.


African American coaches have enjoyed major success in the NFL, most notable when Lovie Smith's Chicago Bears met Tony Dungy's Indianapolis Colts in Miami for Super Bowl XLI. It was the first Super Bowl featuring two Black head coaches, Dungy's Colts defeated Smith's Bears, 29-17, behind a dominant defensive performance. Dungy was the first Black coach to win a Super Bowl and Mike Tomlin became the second after his Steelers topped the Arizona Cardinals just a couple years later in Super Bowl XLIII.


Little known black history fact: Admiral Michelle Janine Howard is a retired United States Navy four star admiral. Howard has achieved many historical firsts throughout her naval career. She was the first African American woman to command a U.S. Navy Ship and the first to achieve two and three star rank. On July 1, 2014, Howard became the first woman to become a U.S. Navy four star admiral. As Vice Chief of Naval Operations, which she began that same day, she was the first African American and the first woman to hold that post. Howard also became the first female four star admiral to command operational forces.

Black History Month

Imagine a time period where we would not be able to be coached by Mr. Williams.  55 years ago, that would have been the case. In Brown v. Board of Education, the US Supreme Court ruled unanimously that racial segregation in public schools violated the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution. The 1954 decision declared that separate educational facilities for white and African American students were inherently unequal. Cy-Fair ISD did not desegregate until 1967. Since then, CFISD has grown to be one of the most productive and diverse districts in the state.


Ruby Nell Bridges Hall is an American Civil Rights Activist. At the tender age of six, Ruby Bridges advanced the cause of civil rights in November 1960 when she became the first African American student to integrate an elementary school in the South. Bridges and her mother were escorted to school by four federal marshals during the school year that Bridges attended William Frantz Elementary. That first day, Bridges and her mother spent the entire day in the principal's office; the chaos of the school prevented their moving to the classroom until the second day. Because of the support from our government and all of the people who believed in integration, Ruby Bridges and so many others were able to acquire the same education that was available to all American students.

Orchestra

The Cy Woods Orchestra earned 65 Superior ratings and 13 Excellent ratings at last weekend's UIL Solo and Ensemble Contest.  Our students brought their best to Cy Lakes High School. Congratulations on a 212 performance, orchestra!

Black History Month

Yesterday began Black History Month and it was created in 1926. Historian Carter G. Woodson announced the second week of February to be "Negro History Week". This week was chosen because it coincided with the birthday of Abraham Lincoln, on February 12 and of Frederick Douglass on February 14, both of which dates, black communities had celebrated together since the late 19th century. It became a month in February 1976. The primary emphasis was placed on encouraging the teaching of the history of African Americans in the nation's public schools.

Lunar New Year

Lunar New Year is one of the most important celebrations of the year among East and Southeast Asian cultures, including Chinese, Vietnamese and Korean communities, among others.  The New Year celebration is usually celebrated for multiple days - not just one day as in Gregorian calendar's New Year. In 2022, Lunar New Year begins on February 1.

The year 2022 is slated to be the year of the water tiger. The water tiger comes up every 60 years. The water tiger is action-oriented and represents strength, bravery and clearing away evil.

After falling short to Klein on Thursday, our Cats bounced back with a huge win over the 2021 region 3 champs, Memorial High School. A true 212 team effort and goals scored were enough to take down the former state champs. Our Cats are back at it Thursday at their next tourney - GOOD LUCK SOCCER!

Your Lady Wildcat JV team played their tails off in the Grand Oaks Cup last weekend and came out of it with 2 wins over a tough Klein and a feisty Memorial. Your Lady Wildcats look to continue their winning ways this weekend at the I-10 Shootout. 212 Soccer!

Boys Soccer

Your Wildcat Boys soccer started the year strong at Cy Ridge. The Sophomore team hung 3 goals on the Rams and then held on to win 3-2 despite a fierce rally at the end from Ridge. 

JV played a determined and very physical game but we weren't messing around. 4-nil for the Wildcats.

Varsity went down 2-0 in the first half but roared back to even it up 2-2 in another scrappy, physical match.

Way to start the season off right, boys!

Fino Alla Fine!

Girls Basketball

The Girls Basketball team had a home game this week vs. Bridgeland. The freshman team had a tough battle and lost a close game. JV was in a dog fight as well and came out with a huge victory!

The Varsity game was an intense game as both teams were shooting lights out from the 3 pt line. In the end our Varsity girls finished the job and made some huge free throws down the stretch to win the game 48-45.

Thanks to all the students and staff that attended the game!
