Exciting Things Happening at Northplace Church, our Partner!
I want to make you aware of many exciting things that Northplace Church is planning for your GISD community:
1. We know that some families are choosing to keep their kids at home this semester due to the concerns of COVID, classroom sizes, etc. We know that thus far, the virtual school has been a great success for the majority of families but there are still some families that have struggled for various reasons. One of them being poor internet connections. In response to these families, Northplace Garland is opening Remote Virtual Classroom (RVC). We are compliant with COVID restriction and maintaining physical distancing and keeping our classrooms very small. We are staffed and parents can drop off their students or do school in our building. Our doors will open from 8 AM - 3 PM, Monday - Friday. If you would like to know more about our RVC please reach out to Mrs. Reynolds, her information is below.
2. In partnership with Dallas County Community Colleges, beginning on Tuesday, October 6th, we will start our Adult Education Program. Every Tues & Thur evening (6 PM - 8 PM) we will offer the following classes, Adult ESL, GED, and El Civics (citizenship preparation). If you might be interested in this program, please reach out to Mrs. Reynolds.
