Fort Worth ISD trustee Wallace Bridges, Superintendent Angélica M. Ramsey, Forest Hill Mayor Stephanie Boardingham and Principal Delain Sandifer welcomed friends at a festive event Friday, Sept. 30, celebrating David K. Sellars Elementary School’s “A” accountability rating.

David K. Sellars Elementary students remained committed to excellence and worked hard to achieve the A rating. Accordingly, “Mattic Mustangs Maintain Momentum:  Celebrating an ‘A’ Rated Campus” was the theme for the celebration last Friday. 

Remarks were presented at 5:30 p.m., and fun, music and refreshments followed.

The Forest Hill Police kindly grilled and served hotdogs to more than 200 attendees.

A group of students performed as part of the district’s continued National Hispanic Heritage month celebration, and the O.D. Wyatt Drum line and Sellars cheerleaders energized the crowd. Take a look at the event photos and video.

Early in the 2021-2022 school year, beloved Sellars Principal Steven Mattic passed away.  Many of his family members were present at Friday’s festivity, including his mother, who shared a beautiful tribute to him. She spoke about his love for the campus, staff, and students.

“This celebration of achievement is exactly as he would have wanted it,” she said.
