In fact, 46 Garland ISD schools earned an A or a B. The district recognized top-performing campuses with special assemblies, celebration banners and commemorative pins in the fall. Each campus received a celebration banner from the Board of Trustees and Dr. López to display proudly by the school’s entrance. Students also presented every campus employee a commemorative pin. Follow the hashtag #MadeTheGrade on Twitter to view photos and videos of the A/B assemblies. See highlights via GRS-TV as well at youtube.com/garlandisdnews.
