We had a great turnout for the 2016 Fish Camp this morning. The Student Council helped show the incoming freshman the ropes at GHS. They led the fish on a scavenger hunt throughout the campus, where they found QR codes and clues to the next stop. Theater students did a fun skit explaining dress code, they learned the pep rally chant, and Olympic themed games were played. Welcome the GHS Class of 2020!

Due to the demand for continuation of the adult literacy program at GISD and desire to keep the service local, Edison Principal Pablo De Santiago reached out to North Central Texas College Gainesville campus to continue the program for Fall 2016. NCTC accepted the challenge to offer these classes for free to Cooke county residents and have opened up two class sessions for this fall semester.
GISD is able to report that each campus within the district has achieved Met Standard, the highest rating schools can earn on the state’s accountability system, and the district as a whole exceeded targets in all four indexes. Congratulations to the students, teachers, and parents on a successful year at GISD!
