School Board Recognition Month

January 2018 is School Board Recognition Month—the theme for the month is Helping Kids Soar for Success. This is a great time to focus on the crucial role the elected board of trustees plays in our communities and schools. Please take some time to show our school board members you appreciate their dedication and hard work.

Giddings ISD would like to take this opportunity to thank these local leaders for devoting time to serving our local schools as well as supporting our students and staff. Thank You, Mr. Mark Johnson, Mrs. Pat Jackson, Mrs. Mary Ellen Whitsel, Mr. Roy Kruemcke, Mr. Martin Rangel, Mr. Spencer Schneider, and Mr. Jason Locke for your service and your role in helping students in GISD soar for success.

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.
