For the month of February, Kimberly Williams, of GJM 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 on her behalf. "Our son Elijah is in 5th grade at GJM and was born with multiple heart conditions. About a month ago we had a small scare, and Elijah was not feeling very well after PE and recess. The first thing nurse Williams did was take his blood pressure and it was indeed elevated. Elijah came home and was able to calm down and allow his levels to regulate, but ever since that day nurse Williams goes out of her way not just once, but twice a day to check Elijah‘s vitals. She then sends them to me so we can keep a log to report back to his cardiologist. She is such a great asset to GJM and I hope all of Ingleside ISD realizes the blessing we have in her. The extra care she shows in these situations makes it so much easier as parents to know that daily our child is being cared for at school just as he is at home! She has also taken on the load of being the PTO president and has helped facilitate the school to have so much fun. She does pickle and popcorn days, she attends little league games and watches some of the students from GJM. She, with the help of others, orchestrated the fall festival earlier in the school year and it was a huge success. She embodies what it means to be a recipient of the Family Matters Award." 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 the district website at www.inglesideisd.org ,under the 'About Us' section of the Menu. Congratulations, Nurse Williams! We're so happy you're a part of the Family at IISD.

For the month of January, Cecile Majek, of the Technology Department 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 on her behalf. "Cecile works in the technology department at the Ingleside ISD administration office. She is responsible for "shutting down your computer and restarting it" all district campuses. After her first Dr. Pepper in the morning, sometimes it takes two, a sociable and vivacious being is created. In addition to solving everyone's technological needs Cecile has a number of other versatile roles, literally. An officer of our very own Ingleside PD was unable to have lunch with her daughter at IPS and reached out to Cecile to check her availability. A Sonic lover by heart, Cecile dropped everything and was excited to share a meal with the little one. On another occasion Cecile was at the right place at the right time when a parent went into distress on campus. Her EMT knowledge was successful in safely stabilizing a parent until paramedics arrived. Most recently, Cecile was able to thwart student's and staff's Christmas plans at GJM, LTMS, and IHS with her mischievous acts as the Grinch. After finally being "arrested" for her not so nice behaviors the Grinch turned a new leaf. In the coming days to follow she was able to make little kiddos smile from ear to ear, in the wee morning hours, as she greeted them at IPS with her rosy cheeks as Elf on The Shelf." 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 the district website at www.inglesideisd.org ,under the 'About Us' section of the Menu. Congratulations, Cecile! We're so happy you're a part of the Family at IISD.

Thus, we are closely monitoring the latest weather forecasts. At this time, Ingleside ISD is planning to remain open and classes will be held as regularly scheduled tomorrow, January 16th. We understand that winter weather can present challenges, and we encourage you to take necessary precautions to ensure that your child is bundled up and dressed appropriately for the weather. Our school buses and transportation services will be in operation, but we ask for your patience and understanding as we safely transport students in colder than normal weather conditions. Should there be any future updates concerning this matter, we will communicate accordingly with parents, staff, and our community through our official district messaging tools, which include district email/text alerts, website postings, social media announcements from official IISD platforms, and local news and radio stations.
