To recognize this long legacy of learning there will be a 50th Anniversary Celebration on September 30 from 9 a.m. to noon.

Everyone who’s enjoyed spending time at Gullett is invited to revisit those days with a special anniversary program and refreshments. AISD dignitaries, former principals, teachers and distinguished alumni will attend.

The schedule will be:
9 a.m. to 10 p.m. ­­– Tour of the school (self)
10:15 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. – Presentation in cafeteria with cake and punch
10:45 to noon– More tours

The presentation will include a slide show, a choir performance and former school leaders. Tours will include history displays, bulletin boards with current student work and central point where alums can connect with each other.
