Primarily benefitting The Let It Be Foundation, the Dance of Hope is a fundraising benefit where many dancers and studios come together to perform and raise money for children in treatment for life-threatening illnesses. This year, senior officer Kilee Shafer will be helping the dance as the DFW co-chair and as part of the planning board, along with fellow Belles Maia Karmis, Sofia Orozco and Yuki Pilon.
Southlake is saying goodbye to a local coffee staple. Since 2020, Beanvoy Coffee Lounge has been serving everything from lattes, cappuccinos, boba tea and iced coffee to local patrons. But it will have made its last pour this weekend when it closes its doors at 2801 E. Southlake Blvd. for good.
The new Miss Southlake and Outstanding Teen were officially crowned over the weekend.

Southlake residents are proud of its brave and selfless first-responders — so much so that they're planning to have its first-ever appreciation and tailgate event next week. At 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 7, Dragon Stadium will host the inaugural First Responders Tailgate and Appreciation event. Prior to the Dragons' next game against Keller, Lady Dragon Soccer, Boys Soccer and the CISD Student Council will come together to host a large-scale pre-game cookout. Parking is free to all first responders.
On the heels of a 51-0 shutout of Keller Timber Creek last week, Southlake Carroll marched into its first district road game of the season on a roll. In a Thursday night contest, the Dragons proved defense travels while blanking out the Haltom Buffalos 62-0 at Birdville ISD’s W. G. Thomas Coliseum. Ranked third in the state, the Dragons have outscored the opposition 264-27 and head into a well deserved bye-week.
The Dragons completely dominated the Haltom Buffalos, holding them scoreless in a 62-0 rout during the first district road game of the season. On a night where 27 defenders logged at least one tackle and nine touchdowns were scored by seven different players, it's hard to pick just one standout performer. This week’s Dragon Pride Players of the Week is The Offensive Line. Averaging nearly 300 pounds across all five positions, they’ve collectively powered a potent clock chewing ground game that averages over 7 yards per carry and has accounted for 19 touchdowns through just five games.
