GALENA PARK ISD SETS DATE OF JUNE 3 FOR
"TAKE OUR DAUGHTERS AND SONS TO WORK DAY"


         Galena Park ISD is joining several school districts throughout the greater Houston area by setting Wednesday, June 3 as the date for “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day” activities instead of the national date of April 23. Students will not be excused from school April 23 to participate in the national “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.”
         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 Daughters and Sons to Work Day’ in June we are providing students, community members, businesses and families a chance to investigate career choices at a more appropriate time in the school year.”
