Ingleside ISD has been made aware that information will be presented on Tuesday, January 24 to the Ingleside City Council regarding a request for a permanent zoning designation. This request could possibly affect the Ingleside school district, as the proposed development will initially include building and operating a Micro Liquified Natural Gas (micro-LNG) production and LNG related facilities. The buffer zone around the school district is recommended to be 200 feet south and west of Ingleside ISD. To learn more about this proposal, the Ingleside City Council Meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 24th at 6:30 PM. City Hall is located at 2671 San Angelo St. The black outlined area on the map below is the area that is being considered for rezoning. The two arrows indicate where Ingleside High School and Leon Taylor Middle School are located.

For the month of January, Maria Deanda of Gilbert. J Mircovich Elementary was selected for the Family Matters Award! She was recognized during our School Board Meeting, where she was celebrated for her outstanding efforts. She was also awarded $100 from the Ingleside ISD Education Foundation. Below is an excerpt from the nomination that was submitted by a parent on her behalf. "Ms. Deanda is an amazing teacher. Two out of my three children had her and absolutely loved her and excelled in her class. She went the extra mile by staying in contact with me and wanting my daughter to genuinely do well in school and life as she started the process of getting my daughter in the Special Education program. I can honestly attest that Ms. Deanda has been the only teacher that has listened and acted on my concerns for my children's academics, this puts parents at ease knowing that she truly wants what's best for children. She makes learning fun which absolutely makes students look forward to learning. I truly wish all teachers were just like Ms. Deanda and we were blessed to have her be a part of our children's elementary experience." We encourage you that if you witness an employee who goes above and beyond and demonstrates actions or qualities that are worthy of celebrating, to tell their story and help us recognize them! The nomination form is located on our website under the 'About Us' section of the Menu. To learn more about the Family Matters Award, visit our website at www.inglesideisd.org Way to go, Mrs. Deanda! We are so glad you're part of the family at Ingleside ISD.

These students formed a team and traveled to Tilden, TX over the weekend to compete in the High School BBQ Inc. - HSBBQ Competition.

LAW ENFORCEMENT APPRECIATION DAY: Law Enforcement Officers have chosen a profession that puts their life on the line every day for their communities. They’ve answered a call to public service that is demanding and takes them away from their families for long hours. Rarely do they know what their days have in store for them. On National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, we have an opportunity to thank them for their service and offer a token of respect. We are thankful for all the men and women who serve at the Ingleside Police Department. We are especially thankful for our School Resource Officer (SRO), Cynthia Calderon! Thank you SRO Calderon for keeping us all safe at IISD!

YOU'RE A *NICE* ONE MR GRINCH: Gilbert J. Mircovich Elementary had some extra help while the GJM PTO passed out Candy Cane Grams. Santa and the Grinch made sure to ask each boy & girl to behave, listen to their teachers, and be safe while on Winter Break. Even though the Grinch wanted to keep the candy canes for himself at first, our student's smiles made his heart grow three sizes & he passed them out to every classroom. Holiday cheer has made it's way around the school!
Students from Ingleside Primary School had a hands-on learning experience with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) activities through the Port of Corpus Christi's PORT-Able Learning Lab, a mobile STEM Laboratory. Representatives with Learning Undefeated were on site to collaborate with Ingleside Primary students while encouraging a world of future career possibilities and to spark interest in STEM careers.
IF YOU BELIEVE IT, YOU CAN ACHIEVE IT: Students in Mrs. Smith's class at Ingleside Primary School got to participate in a special activity with the Port of Corpus Christi's Learning Undefeated team for some hands-on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) activities. Their task was to work with a team as engineers to build a house for the little pig that wouldn't blow down. They had formulate a plan, work within a budget, meet deadlines, and use creativity to put materials together to meet their assignment at hand. That moment when ALL teams' houses built withstood the test of functionality....PRICELESS.
OUR FAMILY MATTERS: This year, Ingleside ISD has started an employee recognition program, the Family Matters Award. This award is designed to recognize IISD employees who are demonstrative of going above and beyond their normal job responsibilities to help a student, parent, volunteer, community member, or a fellow employee. This award is given each month to an employee that is selected by a committee who reviews each nomination. Our recipient for December is Nurse Shelley LaDuque of Ingleside High School. She was recognized during our School Board Meeting, where she was celebrated for her outstanding efforts. She was also awarded $100 from the Ingleside ISD Education Foundation. Below is an excerpt from the nomination that was submitted on her behalf: "It doesn't matter if Shelley is charting or fixing to take her lunch break, she sets everything aside without hesitation to care for students, and staff, even before herself. The staff as a whole will tell you that she’s the best school nurse that supports the “whole” student—mentally and physically. Shelley also wears many hats at Ingleside High School, where she helps with the metal detectors in the morning and with lunch duty, to name just a few things she helps out with-which is in addition to taking care of the all students at the High School. She also takes a proactive approach in making campus decisions that support students. She can be checking someone's temperature one minute and then a short time later counseling a student on their family crisis. The range of care with the level of caring behind it that she provides is unmatched. Nurse Shelley is always going above and beyond her assigned duties. She is willing to help do anything on campus that the High School asks her to do. These are just a few things to give as examples, but because of Nurse Shelley, all of our students are healthier, stronger and all-around great students. " We encourage you that if you witness an employee who goes above and beyond and demonstrates actions or qualities that are worthy of celebrating, to tell their story and help us recognize them! The nomination form is located on our website under the 'About Us' section of the Menu.
