Home of the Eagles
"When it rains, most birds head for shelter; the Eagle is the only bird that, in order to avoid the rain, starts flying above the cloud."
The Texas ABC's

GISD Art Showcase
Students at Steadham were proud to show off their artistic abilities at the Garland ISD Elementary Art Showcase, held at the South Garland Branch Library. Grades 1st through 5th were on display at the Grand Opening on March 28.
GISD will be hosting a STEAMposium. This is an interactive science, technology, engineering, art & math event with a keynote speaker and an award ceremony on Saturday, May 16. Parents, students, and staff are invited to attend this upcoming event.
STEAMposium T-Shirt Contest
Every GISD campus had an opportunity to design a STEAMposium T-shirt. Steadham voters chose a design submitted by our Fifth Grade Art Club. This Steadham STEAM T-shirt will be displayed at the STEAMposium event on May 16 for judging an recognition.
Participants develop those difficult to teach skills…team-work and self-confidence while effectively staying engaged and learning in a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) culture.
GISD is cultivating a culture of “Students and Teachers Engaging Active Minds” by providing prekindergarten through 12th grade STEAM challenges that align with the district's Strategic Plan to support student-centered critical thinking, creativity, innovation, problem solving, collaboration and communication.
The challenges culminate with the GISD STEAMposium, an interactive full-day event at the Curtis Culwell Center with a keynote speaker and award ceremony.
GISD Launches STEAM Education Initiative
Garland ISD is joining hundreds of school districts nationwide by implementing the innovative educational framework known as STEAM, which stands for science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. Championed by educators, public officials and researchers across the country, STEAM’s official concept is that science and technology interpreted through engineering and the arts, all based in mathematical elements, is an adaptable program that supports a rigorous, 21st-century education.
GISD launched its STEAM program this year with a four-phase plan that includes a STEAM Engineering Challenge, the Science Fair, VEX Robotics competitions and Maker Creator challenges. Fueled by the district’s Strategic Plan and the desire to motivate more participation in the annual Science Fair, the initiative was devised and kicked off in a relatively short amount of time.
