Thought Exchange

Dear Parents, Staff and Community Members,

As you are aware, our school community recently took part in an online learning process. We’ve reviewed your thoughts and priorities and now want to share the results with you.

Visit the Results Website to learn about the top priorities in our school and the top priorities of the District.

From the 1,585 stakeholders who contributed, we learned about what you, the stakeholders in the district, identify as priorities for GCISD. We will use this information as we move forward in the second half of our district's 10 year strategic plan, LEAD 2021.

Again, thank you so much for contributing to the success of our schools and District. Your participation in the process was invaluable.


Dr. Robin Ryan
GCISD Superintendent

Spring has Sprung?!?!

The Bransford Garden Club will begin our spring meetings on Wednesday March 1st at 7 am. This spring we will continue to learn more about growing our own vegetables by planting, caring for, and harvesting green beans and squash. We will also learn about the importance of bees and other flying insects with our butterfly garden. We look forward to seeing all of our little gardeners the first Wednesday of each month at 7 am: 3/1, 4/5, and 5/3.

If you as a family or Bransford organization would like to help with the garden, but can not make our meetings, you still can! We welcome your help by watering and weeding our garden on the weekend. Here is the sign up genius for the spring:
