Leopard Pride News
It's a great day to be a Leopard!
We appreciate our staff!!
As a token of appreciation, Dr. Stewart, our police officers, and our Board of Trustees cooked up a delicious hamburger lunch for our employees. The weather cooperated and it was a perfect, beautiful day for our teachers to take a break from professional development and enjoy each other’s company for a long lunch!
United Way Celebration
On Wednesday, we celebrated the 2019 Cooke County United Way campaign with a room full of volunteers, businesses, and community members who join GISD in supporting the United Way. As a pacesetter, our students and staff helped the campaign by raising more than $15,000. Today the campaign grand total of more than $374,000 was announced!
Today GISD district and campus leaders received the following awards:
Pacesetter (campaign pacesetter)
Presidential (increase from last year)
Small Business Award (100% participation/less than 25 employees): Special Services and Head Start
Arley Daurity Award (100% participation/more than 25 employees): Edison Elementary
Mr. Ewart and the jazz band made us proud with their awesome performance, Mrs Boswell’s painting and decorations were a hit, and Avery Crutsinger represented our students as a Junior campaign Chair. As a district, we proudly support the CCUW!
