ATTENTION 6TH GRADE PARENTS: Your student will need vaccinations for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year. Students all across Texas will need a Tdap and a Meningitis (MCV) in order to register for 7th grade. If you have already done so, please turn a copy into Nurse Flowers prior to the end of school. Also, since most 6th graders will be getting a physical for sports, parents can schedule the vaccinations at the same time as the physical (let your provider know this when you make the appointment). If you have any questions, please call Jenny Flowers, RN/School Nurse at 729-4185.

The GISD Board of Trustees signed a Resolution to encourage District employees and eligible students to participate in the election process. “Educators and their allies think about the 5.4 million kids in Texas schools every moment of every day, but the moment when they have the most power is when they cast their vote! Share the Oath with: teachers, counselors, administrators, cafeteria workers, bus drivers, custodians, aides, school board trustees, PTA members, other district employees and their families, and community members. All of these people are considered educators as they support and enrich the educational experience of our children.” from the Texas Association of Community Schools letter regarding Texas Educators Vote Update (10/19/2017).
