Thank you for helping GPISD students soar to success.
CommUNITY Church donated hundreds of bikes to students and with the help of Sterling Wood Church, the bikes were assembled and delivered to each of our elementary campuses!
The students were so excited to receive their new bikes and were all so excited to take their new bikes on a joy ride around the gym!
Thank you so much, CommUNITY Church and Sterling Wood Church!

January Character Education - Perseverance
The mission of Galena Park ISD is to prepare students to become productive citizens and lifelong learners.
We feel that by engaging our students in exciting lessons that explore and incorporate higher level thinking skills, we can assure success for all of our students.
Please support our efforts by discussing and incorporating the monthly character education theme at home. The Character Education Themes for January is Perseverance.
Perseverance is the ability and self control that pushes you to work through challenges. Having perseverance means that when you are facing a challenge, you use your mind and your body to overcome it. Perseverance means you are able to wait and work through difficulties, whether they have to do with your mind, your body, or your emotions. Perseverance is the ability to do your best toward a goal, even though it’s a big challenge.
