NJHS inductions, sports banquet Thursday at GISD

By WANDA LEE Reporter correspondent
The TAKS tests are over (except for retakes) and school students are teachers are counting down to summer vacation. It seems as if this school year really went by quickly, of course, since I’m not a student or teacher, they probably see it different than I do.

Lots of activities are taking place before the final days of school. On Thursday, May 6, the National Junior Honor Society will have its induction ceremony at 2 p.m., then the sports banquet will be held at 6 p.m. A cheerleading clinic was held the first of the week and tryouts will be held later this month.

An Art Show will be held at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 13 in the school library. I’ll have more on this and other activities at Gause ISD in later columns.

Gause Community Improvement Program (CIP) met May 3 for its monthly meeting. Old business was reviewed and final plans for the CIP sponsored Teacher Appreciation Lunch for Gause ISD on May 4 were finalized.

The next meeting will be held Monday, June 7. Plans for Founders Day will be discussed. All residents are urged to attend and become a part of this community organization.

Over 40 members and friends of the Gause Baptist Church were at Reed Arena on the Texas A&M campus in College Station Friday night to attend a Casting Crowns concert. They report an enjoyable time.

Ivan and Jean Crouch of Many, Louisiana visited with relatives here recently.

Jaxon Hayles and his mother, Kristi Lee, spent the weekend in Conroe and the Houston area. On Saturday they attended his brother Tristan’s baseball game and then Jaxon spent the night w ith Tristan and his family, while Kristi visited with other relatives.

Our grandson Connelly Cooper had an exciting day recently when he got to meet someone he admires–Keith Warren, professional hunter and host of his own TV show (I didn’t know who he was either). The meeting was planned and took place at the Double G Archery Shop in Georgetown. Connelly and Keith shot archery and visited for about three hours.

Connelly came home w it h some gifts and an afternoon he will remember forever. Connelly received a picture of the two of them together last week. Connelly’s dad Chris, brother Cameron and Paw Paw Wayne went along and Cameron just happened to take his bow along and got it autographed by Keith.
