FIREWORKS SAFETY

Keep your family safe.

  • Fireworks can result in severe burns, blindness, scars, and even death.
  • Fireworks that are often thought to be safe, such as sparklers, can reach temperatures above 1000 degrees Fahrenheit, and can burn users and bystanders.
  • Families are encouraged to attend community fireworks displays run by professionals rather than using fireworks at home.

A MESSAGE FROM GALENA PARK ISD'S COLLEGE & CAREER READINESS DEPARTMENT

Summer shouldn't mean taking a break from learning, especially reading. Studies show that most students experience a loss of reading skills over the summer months, but children who continue to read will gain skills. The following resources will allow your child to discover fun activities to encourage them to learn, read and have fun in the summer sun!
