Thank you GHNO Families!
Should you see the circle CI sticker, make sure and thank your fellow families for supporting GHNO!

 Big thanks to the families who headed the call, we bumped up to a 50% family participation rate, which means about 1/2 of our families have made a gift this year (typically we are at a 64%).

 Every gift counts and matters to us, if you have yet to make a gift this year, you can do so here.

We recognize this year has had its struggles, which is why your support is more important than ever!

  • The Texas Public Charter School Association has been tracking the non-discrimination bill -- HB1348 – that would prohibit cities and municipalities from creating a separate set of rules for charter schools to open and operate. The bill has been sitting in the House Calendars Committee for nearly a month, after which it must be scheduled for a vote on the House floor. Stay tuned for updates and action alerts on this priority legislation through the Texas Public Charter School Association by signing up here.
