September 20- September 24 , 2021
Dear Gladiator Families,
Hello Gladiator Nation!!
I had the pleasure of doing some "principaling" this week! I was able to make it out to both games this week, watched a boys choir performance, watch students assess letters, and much more! Our clubs are beginning to meet, we are going to start Fanny Pack Fridays, begin selling concessions at football games, getting passes ready for library lunch visits and much more. THIS is what I had missed during the past year. All the great things that make Garcia, Garcia!
PE uniforms have arrived!!! You can purchase them through the PE classes!
We have a new Librarian!! Her name is Mrs. Delgadillo! Here is her first HGMS Library Smore!
Please remember we will not check out students after 3:45.
Traffic has improved so much!! Thank you for al your help. Just a couple of reminders: Please do not form lines in the front parking lot. If you are waiting for students, please park, walk to get your student and then you can exit the parking lot. Making two lines in the parking lot is not safe and we will begin asking you to park. This is a safety hazard for many reasons! There is no parking in the front pick up area. If your student is not out when you arrive, we ask you please circle around to get them. This helps our traffic flow. Please do not park along the street in the back of the bus loop or on street right outside our school. This does not allow for buses to enter or exit in a timely manner. Lastly, please do not pick up students in the Primrose parking lot. Not only does this cause issues for customers of the business, but causes a safety issue for students.
Our club list and our Academic Coaching schedule is now available! See images and downloadable attachments below!
Masks continue to be mandatory for any student, staff or visitors to our campus. See the District information here: https://www.nisd.net/news/latest-information-regarding-masks-northside-isd
