Attention Teachers!

Teachers may now print their own “Learner History” transcript. This is an easy way to document learning sessions attended for T-TESS and/or “Flex Day” purposes.


In addition, teachers need to fill out the form that is on the black file cabinet by Mrs. McClard's office door for their hours. Please remember teachers must fulfill the 6 hours of training toward the January 2, 2017 flex day. Teachers who attended training within GISD received a certificate of attendance that reflected the total hours, and those sessions were also loaded into Oracle and should be in their learner history.

For sessions outside GISD to be approved, teachers must submit a copy of a certificate to gisdlearning@garlandisd.net. The certificates must show the name of the session, date(s) and total hours of learning. The teacher will receive an email once the session is approved.

Parsons Step Club

Rather than focus on a number we have decided to focus more on the benefits of walking and exercise. With that being said the 999,999 + 1 Miles club is now the Parsons Step Club. We invite everyone to join and send in their total steps for the week to Mr. Bill on Mondays. The previous week's results will be posted in the Paw Print every Monday. Let's get moving!



Total Miles Walked Last Week: 379
