  • You’re Invited!
    During the 2013-2014 school year, GCISD piloted a program known as Restorative Practice on three elementary campuses. This year, the program is being implemented at all elementary schools across the district.  Restorative Practice is a proven method to help strengthen connections between students and teachers and create engaging classroom environments that foster academic and social growth, innovation, collaboration and positive behavior.

    On October 22 at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. at Grapevine High School Auditorium, representatives from GCISD and The Institute for Restorative Communities will host an information session for parents about the restorative practices model. At this information session, counselors and trainers will discuss the restorative practices used in GCISD (circle up and restorative chat) and will also share personal success stories and answer any parent questions. If you would like to learn more about Restorative Practices before October 22, please visit the Restorative Communities website and watch a video featuring GCISD student success stories
    This is an exciting addition to our campus for students! I hope to see you on October 22.

  • NEW CAMPUS POLICY REGARDING BIRTHDAY TREATS @ SCHOOL - Due to an excessive number of scholars that have reported food-related allergies, we are changing our policy about birthday treats at school effective immediately. Edible birthday treats are no longer allowed to be sent to school for celebration of student birthdays. However, if parents would like to send a non-edible treat (stickers, pencils, etc...) they are welcome to do so, but they must include ALL scholars in the class. Additionally, if parents are sending in non-edible treats, they have been asked to send them to the teacher, to be distributed at your discretion. Thank you!

    • Dr. Note Required
      Don’t forget…if you check your child out of school early for a doctor’s appointment, a note from the doctor/dentist is required to excuse your child’s absence.
      Early Pick Up=Partial Day Absence=Unexcused (without a doctor’s note)
