Welcome Explorers to the last grading period

Welcome back Face2Face to our remote learners who are joining us for the last grading period to finish off the year strong! Parents and Guardians, your patience during drop/pick off is greatly appreciated as we have another wave of students join us for the 6th grading period. Safety First is our priority for our Galvan Family during transitions.

STAAR May 11th and 12th Reminders

Kinder thru 2nd Grade Students will be Asynchronous from home these dates. Please make sure make arrangements for your children to work from home.

Grit, Purpose, and Hope is the Capturing Kids' Heart theme for April

Wednesday our Explorers have the opportunity to dress up to the movie "Finding Nemo" to continue promoting perseverance! We are encouraging our Explorers to continue the passion and perseverance to do their best as we end the school year!

Safety Reminders

Please make sure to self-screen your family daily to avoid the spread of COVID-19. If your child has any of the Covid Symptoms please contact our school Nurse Ms. Diaz at 361-878-2800 before returning to school each day.
