TEACHER of the YEAR for Granger Junior High!!!

Hi,

I just wanted to take a moment to express my thanks and gratitude for the honor of being the TOY (Teacher of the Year) here at Granger. I was very surprised to receive it and am immensely appreciative and humble to be recognized in the company of so many excellent educators. I think we have a full staff of Teachers of the Year at Granger every year. I love being part of this staff, and admire you all for your dedication to our students and the education craft.

Thanks again for this accolade.

Incoming 7th graders to visit Granger

At the moment, we are working on preparing and setting dates for our six feeder elementary schools to come and visit as they do every year. We look forward to this day because it allows us to meet our future students and also allows your students to experience what life as a Granger student is like.

Prepared for them on this day are performances by our GRIFFFIN Band, our Award Winning (Hip Hop) Free for All Dance Troop, Cheer, Robotics, and Color Guard Team. In addition, visiting students will get to meet our administrator, counselors, teachers and staff. Along with this visitation is a tour of our campus, classrooms visits, and meet and greet with school club members. As you can see we have a full day installed for them.

Mr. Garcia
