Stephanie Long (middle), district leader volunteer for The Humane Society of the United States, presents 35 books, “The Life of Gus – The Dog with the Big Head,” by Sandee Roquemore-Maxwell, to Christi Leath (left), director of advanced academics and special projects, and Dr. Randal O’Brien, Goose Creek CISD superintendent, for Goose Creek CISD elementary campuses. The book is based on the true story of Gus, the street dog from Houston who is now the ambassador for strays worldwide. It is their hope that teaching children about being kind to others and to animals will lead to taking that kindness and compassion with them into their adult years. Roquemore-Maxwell also is working with an illustrator to create coloring books for distribution primarily in areas where pet owners do not have access to care for their pets.

Walking Trails Open at Four Elementary Schools

 

The recent ribbon-cutting ceremony for the walking trail at Bowie Elementary also signified the official opening of walking trails at Carver, Harlem and Lamar elementaries.

The walking trails are one of the projects to encourage physical activity in the schools as well as in the community.
