  • Watch D.O.G.S (Dads of Great Students)
     
    The Watch D.O.G.S program is the father involvement initiative of the National Center for Fathering.  The goal of the program is to help every school in America be positively influenced by the committed involvement of fathers and father figures in the lives of their children and students.  The volunteers perform a variety of tasks during their volunteer day, including monitoring the school entrance, assisting with unloading and loading of buses and cars, monitoring the lunch room, and helping in the classroom by working with small groups of students on various tasks.(http://www.fathers.com/watchdogs)
     
    We had many dads join us for the Watch D.O.G.S Kickoff on Saturday, September 6th! If you couldn't make the meeting, you can still sign up to be part of the Watch D.O.G.S. program. Contact Miss Ofelia in the office to schedule a day.

  • Report Bullying
     
    GCISD is proud to provide an additional resource for reporting bullying, violence or mistreatment of any kind. Friends for Life, a program from Crime Stoppers, is an anonymous reporting method that you or your child can find on your counselors website. Once on the website, there will be a link to the reporting website or a phone number for calling or texting in a report. Off-duty public safety dispatchers operate the call center along with other trained personnel who take calls, texts and onlinesubmissions and disseminate the tip information to the appropriate campus and district contacts for investigation. Once again we would like to reiterate that this is an anonymous reporting method. This is just one more way GCISD aims to ensure student safety.

  • It's the LAW!
     
    A new law took effect September 1 with regard to the use of mobile devices on school property. It is important that our Silver Lake families know and understand the new law as it pertains to operating a vehicle on GCISD property. More details, includingthe exact wording of the law, are provided below:
    The Bill prohibits the use of a wireless communication device while operating a motor vehicle on school property.
    BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF TEXAS: SECTION 1. Section 545.425(b), Transportation Code, is amended to read as follows: (b) Except as provided by Subsection (c), an operator may not use a wireless communication device while operating a motor vehiclewithin a school crossing zone, as defined by Section 541.302, Transportation Code, or on the property of a public or private elementary or middle school unless:
    (1) the vehicle is stopped; or
    (2) the wireless communication device is used with a hands-free device.
    SECTION 2. The change in law made by this Act applies only to an offense committed on or after the effective date of this Act. An offense committed before the effective date of this Act is governed by the law in effect on the date the offense was committed, andthe former law is continued in effect for that purpose. For purposes of this section, an offense was committed before the effective date of this Act if any element of the offense occurred before that date.
    SECTION 3. This Act takes effect September 1, 2013.
     
    Thank you for observing this new law, designed to keep our school children and staff safer!
