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."

Family Reading Night
Steadham Family Reading Night was October 30, 2014. All grade levels participated in a variety of ways. Kindergarten teachers dressed up and read There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat. Parents joined in by coloring, cutting and pasting to an "Old Lady" cut out. First grade celebrated the family event by reading Splat the Cat. Students in Third grade read books with their parents while using context clues to determine the meaning of any unfamiliar words they may not have known. After all classroom activities, all students took part in a "Book Walk" in the gym while enjoying hotdogs and drinks.
The primary mission of Garland ISD is to promote a safe learning environment for all students. Our goal is to educate students, teachers, parents and the community about a safe and effective way of using technology resources for educational purposes. Many safe search websites are available to students when online. Teaching students about being safe on the Internet is an important part of the 21st century classroom. GISD has put together an online course with materials and video to support this instruction. Parents can also access these materials to support their own discussions with their children about cybersafety.
Use the Guest Login option to access the Cybersafety course.
