Happy New Year
Dear HMS Families,
Welcome back! I hope you had a restful and fun-filled winter break. It was a pleasure seeing students on Tuesday. We look forward to continue the great work our students are doing and finishing out the school year strong.

2014-2015 School Report Card from Texas Education Agency
Here is a copy of our HMS 2014-2015 School Report Card (SRC) from the Texas Education Agency (TEA). The School Report Card is given yearly to all public schools in the state of Texas. The purpose of the SRC is to inform parents and guardians about each school's individual characteristics such as student enrollment, class size averages, and financial expenditures, as well as, student performance on the STAAR. More information about School Report Cards can be found on the TEA website. GCISD School Report Cards are posted on our website along with Accountability Summaries and Texas Academic Performance Reports. There are also copies of the School Report Card at the front desk. Please contact the school if you have any questions.
