February is Kindness Month

Each day we are encouraging our Explorers to show random acts of kindness to one another by giviing someone a smile, a short kind note, or pay someone a compliment. Kindness is free and helps make the world a better place for everyone.

Campus Spelling Bee

This year our Galvan Spelling Bee will be closed campus due to the circumstances we are in this year. The Spelling Bee will be held in the school library at 9:00 am Monday, February 8, 2021. Best Wishes to all our Participants.

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. Our priority is Safety First for our school community and everyone's support and cooperation is greatly appreciated!

Valentine's Day Reminder

This year Valentine's Day will look different for our Explorers due taking extra precautions by not having anyone bring Valentine cards or any other items to school for safety purposes. Everyone's support is greatly appreciated to continue practicing the CDC guidelines to protect our Explorers, Faculty, and Support Staff.

Everyone have a great and safe week!

Your Proud Principal,

Diana S. Ybarra
