  • REAL School Garden coming to Cannon Elementary: A GCISD STEM School

     

    Cannon Elementary: A GCISD STEM School has been selected as a recipient of a REAL School Garden for the 2015-2016 school year.

     

    REAL School Gardens is a non-profit organization that creates learning gardens and then trains teachers on how to use them to provide hands on learning experiences that engage students and increase academic achievement. The gardens enhance learning in science, math, language arts and other core subjects, which is a perfect alignment for Cannon’s STEM focus said Principal Tona Blizzard.
     

    “Everything we do has a STEM focus and we look forward to incorporating our lessons into this outdoor learning environment,” Blizzard said. “To better align with our STEM curriculum, we have been working with the design architect to incorporate alternative energy sources such as solar beds and a rainfall collection system.”

     

    A community partner helps fund each REAL School Garden, and the Cannon garden will be sponsored by Mercedes-Benz Financial Services. Volunteers from Mercedes-Benz will be on hand, along with parents, staff, students and community members to assist with installing the garden.

  • GCISD Finance earns Platinum Leadership Circle Award
     
    platinum The GCISD Financial Services department again received recognition for its high level of transparency, earning a 2015 Platinum Leadership Circle Award from the Texas Comptroller's Office. Created in 2014, this is the second year the Platinum designation has been available. According to the Texas Transparency website, the Platinum designation "spotlights entities that go above and beyond providing financial transparency." This is also GCISD’s fourth consecutive year to earn a Leadership Circle Award.
     
    “I am very proud of the GCISD finance team for once again receiving this award," said DaiAnn Mooney, GCISD chief financial officer. “It validates that we place significant value and high priority on  financial transparency and the good stewardship of taxpayer money.”
     
    The district earned this award by scoring 23 of 23 possible points on the program's ratings criteria--a perfect score. The Texas Comptroller's Leadership Circle program recognizes local governments across the state that strive to meet high financial transparency through online resources. Recipients of this award demonstrate transparency by providing citizens with a clear, consistent picture of spending and sharing information in a user-friendly format.
     
    The platinum insignia (shown at right) has been added to the Texas Transparency website.

B.E.S.T. Report

  • Memorial Day

    Posted by Heather Willden at 5/22/2015
    It's not just a day off.
     
    On Monday, America will come together to observe Memorial Day, a day we set aside to honor those who have died in defense of our country, and those who have passed on from our lives. I hope we all take time on Monday to pause and realize how fortunate we are to live in this country, and enjoy the freedoms paid for by the sacrifices of others.
     
    This month marks the 40th anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War. All wars are controversial at some level, but Vietnam was especially so. Too many of our servicemen and servicewomen did not come home -- 58,209 were killed and 25,493 of those were 20 years old or younger. And unfortunately, many of our Vietnam Vets who survived did not receive the welcome home they deserved for serving our country. But today, and each day forward, we have a chance to say ‘thank you.’ Thank you for your service and thank you for your sacrifice.
     
    I know you will take the time to express your gratitude to veterans you meet. In GCISD, we teach patriotism, love of our country, and respect for those who have served in any of our armed forces. That's another aspect of GCISD that makes us the B.E.S.T.
