Dads Take Pledge

Gaines Academy had a wonderful turnout for their Dads Take your Child to School Day. After a welcome from administration, the SGA Chorus sang and the Student Council president, Lopez Bourjolly, spoke about the importance of making memories with your child. As the students and their caring adult, ate a light breakfast, they enjoyed a reading activity and signed the Pledge for Fathers and Men.

Gaines Visits Gaines

Gaines Academy students were so excited to welcome their school’s namesake, Dr. Samuel S. Gaines, on Wednesday morning. Dr. Gaines was greeted by a tunnel of enthusiastic elementary students while being serenade by the SGA spirit band and choir. As the guest for the SLPS’ monthly Speakers Bureau program, Dr. Gaines both inspired and entertained SGA’s middle school students with his message of encouragement.
