Welcome to Shugart Elementary School
Parents as Partners
Parents, have your heard about the GISD STEAM Challenges? STEAM Challenges are collaborative projects that allow students to gain hands on experiences in the following subjects: Science,Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. We know you want to help our students do well. So, help us by donating the following items: bubble wrap, shoe boxes, cloth (scraps), and 1 m masking tape. Donations can be dropped off in the front office.
Fall Picture Day is Tuesday, October 28th. Students may wear special clothes for their portraits, but the clothes must be school appropriate. Parents can order pictures either by bringing back the envelope that will go home next week in their child's Cowboy Chronicles, or by ordering online at mylifetouch.com using Picture Day ID LD604281Q0.
The Voting has Begun
Each year, Shugart sponsors a pumpkin decorating contest. Students and staff are encouraged to showcase their creative skills by decorating a pumpkin. We vote by bringing loose change for the pumpkin we like most. The money raised is used to help fund our fifth graders annual Pine Cove trip.
Red Ribbon Week is Coming
Shugart Elementary School is working in conjunction with Garland ISD to promote Red Ribbon Week. During the fourth week in October, the Sheriffs will participate in school wide events. Our mission is to promote the importance of living a drug free life. Check out our Red Ribbon Slideshow.
