Hero and Cybersafety Week

September 22-26 is HERO and Cybersafety week in Garland ISD. Activities and programs throughout the week will promote a safe learning environment by educating students, teachers, parents and the community about cybersafety, respecting classmates, exemplifying good citizenship, and how to prevent bullying in schools and communities.

Austin answers the ALS challenge

Brandenburg MS called out Austin to raise money and participate in the Amyotrophic lateral sclerosi (ALS) Ice Bucket Challenge.
