GPHS Parent Connections

November 2019

Each month the administrative team will send you the GPHS Parent Connections with information about events on campus for the month. Please see the September edition below.

Galena Park High School has a long-standing tradition of excellence. Our staff and community understand that education is the greatest gift we can give the next generation. This year our focus will be on continuing the traditions that have made GPHS an excellent learning institution. We will continue to challenge and encourage our student body to achieve the highest levels of success in academics, athletics and community involvement.

A Stanford dean says your 18 year old should be able to do these 8 things . . .

Now is the time to start working on "adult skills" with your child.
