Family Impact Days

In Giddings ISD, the theme for the 2017-2018 school year is “Make an Impact,” and it will begin with the goal of encouraging families to foster, re-establish, or even strengthen relationships in the household. Therefore, with this mission in mind, the school will set aside one night per month in which all students in every grade level will not be assigned homework.

It is the hope that this small change in Giddings’s homework procedures will at least bring families back together during the busy week so parents can feel as though they have more time to positively impact their children. Parents, after all, provide the greatest education to their children in nearly all of the most important areas of life. Providing some quality time for parents to do just that, is a top priority of Giddings ISD. Therefore, the 3rd Wednesday of each month, beginning in October, will be “Family Impact Nights” for our school district.

Red Cross Donations at the Football Game vs Navarro

Update: Thanks, buffalo fans for raising $594.00 before halftime of the game vs. Navarro. Your contributions will help continue the Red Cross relief efforts.

The American Red Cross is working around the clock along the Gulf Coast to help the thousands of people whose lives have been devastated by Hurricane Harvey including those who are displaced from their homes within the boundaries of Giddings ISD.

As a result of tremendous support the Red Cross has received, they have shifted their requests to monetary donations which will allow them to get the supplies to those that need it most.

In order to support this cause, the Giddings High School Student Council will be accepting monetary donations at the gates of the stadium during the football game vs. Navarro. Donations will also be accepted at the Giddings High School office during the day on Friday, September 1, 2017. A presentation will be made to volunteers at the local Red Cross shelter at halftime of the game.
