Families in Need of Assistance - See Information Regarding The Reindeer Project and Return Required Form by October 27th

In an effort to help reduce the worry, anxiety and financial burden that Christmas can bring to families in these difficult times, we have partnered with The Reindeer Project, a program sponsored by First Christian Church of Rowlett and supported by several other churches and organizations.  Please consider your situation carefully and if you are in need of assistance with Christmas for your children (ages Birth - grade 12), complete this form and bring it back to the school counselor.  

A representative of The Reindeer Project will contact you to set up an interview/registration time and place after this form has been returned. If you have already registered for assistance elsewhere, please do not apply. Thank you for your honesty and consideration in this matter. The program is open to GISD students and their families.

Please fill out this form and give it to your child’s school counselor as soon as possible, but no later than October 27.
