Driscoll ISD School Health Advisory Committee held a meeting on January 19,2012. There were many new and exciting topics discussed. Each department gave a detailed report of activities that had been done since the school year began, as well as upcoming events. A report on the ACE afterschool program was given with suggestions from other committee members for additional activities. An overview of the PE department was discussed with emphasis on preparing for the upcoming Fitness Gram. The Community members all expressed a desire to work closely with the school in efforts to create a positive environment for the students.
