Please see the flyers below for additional information, including participating community partners and event specifics.
Thank you for your help in prioritizing student health and safety in every way possible.
Save the date and join Galveston ISD's administration and Board of Trustees as we honor a true Ball High School and Galveston living legend - the one and only Roger "Bo" Quiroga.

A Special Treat!
Look what we found!
In researching Ball High, an unknown and undiscovered picture surfaced. This is the BHS Class of 1905. The original was pretty beat up so the original was taken to our photoshop class. Ms. Hayden put one of her students (Alianna Sierra) on the task and it came out perfect.
Amazing work Alianna, and thank you Mark Kelso for sharing this with us to share with the GISD Community.
