Promising Practices Packed the House

B and G Club

The Galena Park ISD school community packed the house to cheer on the Boys and Girls Clubs from every campus as they were recognized for receiving the 2023 Promising Practices Award. Promising Practices Awards highlight organizations that are moving away from conventional practices by developing and implementing innovative approaches. Galena Park ISD’s Boys and Girls Clubs demonstrated significant impact and are fully aligned with one or more of’s eleven Principles Framework for Schools: A Guide to Cultivating a Culture of Character. This year’s character development practices and initiatives included peer mentoring, service-learning, and conflict-resolution approaches. Many of the Promising Practices also involve parents and the local community. GPISD’s commitment to developing a comprehensive character initiative ensures students have access to a positive and appropriate adult role model through Boys and Girls Clubs, which are present on every campus. 

A certificate was presented to Ms. Vanessa Squirrel, Director of School Culture and Climate, and each campus sponsor on behalf of the Board of Trustees and Dr. John Moore, Superintendent of Schools.
