Retiring GISD employees Proctor, Turner to be honored with reception
Everyone is invited to retirement reception honoring Vera Proctor and Earnestine Turner who will both be retiring at the end of this school term after serving in paraprofessional positions at Gause ISD for many years. I don’t think there is anyone employed at the school now that has been there longer than these two ladies. This celebration of their years of service will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, May 3 in the Gause School Community Library.
A reminder to g raduat ing seniors from Gause, the Community Improvement Program scholarship applications are due to be by Saturday, April 30.
Twenty-eight Gause ISD students recently participated in the Nature Festival photo contest. Those who received ribbons in their respective categories were: Derek Walton, first and “most creative title”; Brittany Czajkowski, second; Seth Vinton, second; Justin Blakely third; Cameron Cooper, third; Dakora Taylor, third; Elexis Welch, third. All photos are on display in the school cafeteria.
School students are busy this week taking the TAKS tests. Glad to repor t that James Rasco is on the road to recovery after spending most of last week in intensive care at the hospital in Bryan.
