Nixon-Smiley CISD is not supporting or encouraging any social media “Adopt a Senior” campaigns. We are very concerned about the safety of our students and worry that posting pictures and/or sharing personal information, including home addresses, could be risky. However, we do strongly encourage anyone who wants to provide a gift or card to our Seniors to work with our local merchants who set up Senior Registries. In the past, this has included Main Drug, The Flower Tubb, and Western Store Nixon. Using this option would not only show our Seniors that you care, but it would support local businesses. We will let you know when those registers are ready and how to participate. If any other local businesses are participating, please contact the superintendent at cathy.lauer@nixonsmiley.net so you can be included in future press releases.
