TAPR PUBLIC HEARING
Monday, February 18, 2019
at the February Regular Board Meeting
in the Board Room located at 1202 N. Ellis, Groesbeck, TX
The Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR) pull together a wide range of information on the performance of students in each school and district in Texas every year. Performance is shown disaggregated by student groups, including ethnicity and socioeconomic status. The reports also provide extensive information on school and district staff, programs, and student demographics.
ATTENTION 6TH GRADE PARENTS: Your child will need vaccinations for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year. Students all across Texas will need a TDAP and a Meningitis (MCV) in order to register for 7th grade. If you have already done so, please turn a copy of your child’s vaccination record into Nurse Flowers prior to the end of school. Also, since most 6th graders will be getting a physical for sports, parents can schedule the vaccinations at the same time as the physical (let your provider know this when you make the appointment). If you have any questions, please call Jenny Flowers, RN/School Nurse at 729-4185.
The Groesbeck ISD Innovation Plan Committee will host a public meeting to answer questions regarding the proposed Innovation Plan. The meeting will be held Monday, February 18, 2019, at 6:00 PM in the Groesbeck ISD Board Room, 1202 N.Ellis, Groesbeck, TX 76642. All interested parties are invited to attend.
For more information, visit the GISD District of Innovation website.
SENIORS AND SENIOR PARENTS
To the Parents of All Seniors:
If your child is planning to attend college after graduation, they will need an updated Meningitis booster shot in order to enroll. The booster is given every five years. If you have any questions, please call Jenny Flowers, R.N./School Nurse at 729-4185.
Should you receive contact from outside companies regarding school fundraisers, please remember that if it is a valid school fundraiser, they will have an approved fundraiser form from the district. Fundraiser events are also listed on the district calendar. Questions please call Darla Wurtz at 729-4146.
September is Attendance Awareness Month and as a part of that recognition, the students of Groesbeck ISD Kindergarten through 12th grade participated in a poster contest to bring awareness to the importance of school attendance. Students submitted posters to illustrate the theme “Every Day Counts”. The top three posters from each grade level were submitted to the District Office, and a panel of outside judges chose the 1st place winner for each grade level. The winning posters will be displayed on the district’s website through the school year. So watch each month for different grade levels being displayed.
Congratulations to each of these students, and a warm thank you to everyone who participated.
See the posters below:
8th Grade – Marquis Mitchell
9th Grade – Kaitley Edwards
Effective September 1, 2018
