School Board Appreciation Month
At the January 22 Board of Trustees meeting, the Board was recognized for their volunteer service to our students and staff. The Board is always helping our kids at GISD soar to success. The room was decorated with beautiful kites made by the GHS art class and each member received a hand painted glider from Mrs. Rice, GHS art teacher. Chalmers students signed kites made by their art teacher, Taryn Winters and provided those to each board member. The board was also treated to the winning dish from the GHS Top Cat cooking competition prior to the meeting. The video shown below was created to show students at every grade level soaring to success thanks to our Board.
Those serving Gainesville ISD on the 2017-18 Board of Trustees are: Corey Hardin (President), Mike Schmitz (VP), Doug Wade (Secretary), Mike Rosenberg, Will Presson, Phil Neelley, Marvin Royal. To learn more about the Board members, click HERE.
