THERE ARE ANGELS AMONG US!

Check out Gulfport High School's latest mural they have hanging in the Arts building. I challenge all of our staff to take a photo there and post it on social media so everyone can see the angels among us. Every student needs an angel! Watch the video below, while thinking of your most challenging student(s) and know that YOU are the angel who makes a difference in the life of that child and many more. You never know what someone is carrying in their backpacks and some are very heavy. Words can't express how much we appreciate our teachers. Thank you GHS teachers and art students. I can't wait to see all of your photos posted.
