FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

GALENA PARK ISD SETS DATE FOR “TAKE OUR CHILD TO WORK DAY”

            Galena Park ISD is joining several school districts in the greater Houston area by setting Wednesday, June 6 as the date for “Take Our Child to Work Day” activities instead of the national date of April 26. Students will not be excused from school April 26 to participate in the national “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.” The district chose the June 6 date because it does not interfere with the regular instructional day which is of the utmost importance for GPISD students.
            There are many opportunities for students to examine career choices during the course of the school year,” said Dr. Mark Henry, superintendent of schools. “By celebrating ‘Take Our Child to Work Day’ in June we are providing students, community members, businesses and families a chance to investigate career choices without interrupting students’ valuable instructional time.”
