Dear Galena Park ISD Family and Friends,
The Spring 2024 semester is in full swing! I am thrilled to announce that February 6, 2024, will mark the 100th day of school in Galena Park ISD. This day is an important milestone for students. We look forward to many more days of excellence throughout the 2023-2024 school year!
The month of February is Black History Month, and throughout Galena Park ISD we will honor and celebrate the historical contributions and achievements of African Americans. We encourage everyone to take time to learn about and appreciate the important role that African American individuals have played in shaping our society.
February is also Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month. In Galena Park ISD, we recognize the importance of vocational education and the opportunities it provides for students to gain valuable skills and experiences that will serve them well in their future careers. Our commitment to CTE has led former GPISD students to exciting and thriving careers!
National School Counseling Week takes place from February 5th to February 9th. This year’s theme is “School Counseling: Standards-Based, Student-Focused,” which describes the school counseling programs within GPISD. In fact, our standards are so outstanding that four school counseling teams will be recognized for reinforcing excellence in students.! Please take time to acknowledge and thank our school counselors for their hard work and dedication in supporting our students’ academic and personal growth.
Finally, our students will enjoy a long weekend from February 16th through the 19th. Staff will participate in professional development on Friday, February 16th, and the district will observe Presidents’ Day on Monday, February 19th. Classes will resume on Tuesday, February 20th, to continue our mission of preparing students to become productive citizens and lifelong learners.
John Moore, Ed.D.
