Gladiator News

Dr. Hector P. Garcia Middle School

September 4-8, 2017

Greetings Gladiator Community,

This week we welcomed 1467 students into our building! Everyone is learning the routine and routes around campus. The students are friendly and helpful towards each other, it is a pleasure to watch. We are fortunate to have such well mannered students attend Garcia Middle School, thank you!

This newsletter is packed with a lot of information. For those of you that are new to our campus, I send this out weekly to keep you informed about what is occurring on campus. HGMS is a busy place, so we want to make sure parents are in the know about what's coming up! Make sure you have signed up to receive our Remind messages: text @hgms1 to 81010 or (281)823-9732.

Open house for 7th and 8th grade will be held next week. The 7th grade will be on Thursday, September 7th from 5:30-7:00. The 8th grade will be on Wednesday, September 6th from 5:30-7:00. Both nights will be a come and go event. You will need a copy of your child's schedule so you can visit each classroom and meet the teacher.

If you are a returning parent, you might have noticed we have made some changes to the morning drop off procedures the last few days. Creating the two lane drop off seems to be expediting the process, so we will continue with this practice. I have included a map to visualize the procedures. Since we are creating a two lane road we need to discontinue any parking/loading beyond the cross walk. You are welcome to park in the parking lot or wait in the lane before the cross walk for your child. Parking beyond the cross walk prevents the flow of traffic. Thank you for your patience while we work to relieve some of the traffic congestion.

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!
