Dear Gladiator Families,

Hello Gladiator Nation!!


Hope this newsletter finds you enjoying some great fall weather!! We have had a busy week, here in the Gladiator Nation! We began Fanny Pack Friday, had a musical performance by Mr. Galvan, had the National Anthem at our Football game, and had theatre performances! It was so much fun to see everyone out enjoying all the great things we do here! We have a new staff member: Mr. Mateo Macias! He is our new Associate Principal and comes to us from Krueger Middle School In NEISD. We are happy to have him!


We will be administering STAAR interim assessments this week on Tuesday and Wednesday through ELA classes. These assessments are given online so your child will need to bring their school issued device as well as the charger.


Fanny Pack Friday's have begun! We have had so much fun presenting this out to our students! Here is the official video link: https://youtu.be/fck37_v8IhU
