Gladiator News

Dr. Hector P. Garcia Middle School

September 11-15, 2017

Greetings Gladiator Community,

Football and volleyball games begin this week! Our first match up will be against Folks Middle School. Students are invited to attend the games. They need to report to the cafeteria after school to purchase their ticket, which is $2.00. Concessions will be available during the games as well. We encourage all our spectators to sport Garcia gear or colors. Adult tickets are $3.00. NISD employees and Gold Card members are free.

We invite all parents to attend Navigating Middle School on Monday, September 18th from 6:00-8:00 p.m. We will offer a variety of sessions to help parents navigate the middle school experience! Please join us!

Thank you for your patience as we make adjustments to our drop off and pick up procedures. Please review the map below for detailed information regarding drop off locations and no parking areas. As a reminder, parents should not park on Tall Heights in the Grandview subdivision. Grandview residents have reported that a large number of cars are parking there and asked us to ensure the community is aware it's a no parking area. We will inform students of this information as well. We appreciate your cooperation.

Attention 6th grade parents. The 6th graders are having trouble with the combination locks, particularly during PE. It would be extremely helpful if you could practice with your child at home. Thank you!
