Central Homecoming Legacy Lunch

As legacies go, the history of Central High and its graduates is one that won’t be forgotten. Since 2017, Central Middle School has hosted a Homecoming Legacy Lunch for anyone who has walked the halls of the campus. On October 13 the ‘old gang’ gathered once again to share memories from a historical perspective.


“There is an incredible energy around the Bearcat family in this community. It is rich, it is steadfast, and it’s immovable,” proclaims Central Middle School Principal Dr. Monique Lewis. “The Bearcats from as far back as 1948 are here and I’m honored to be able to continue the legacy.”

Academy Sock Donation

Academy Sports and Outdoors once again donated 22 pallets of socks to Galveston ISD. It is estimated that this is close to 14,000 pairs of socks. The pallets of “broken socks” came from Academy’s Katy, Texas distribution center. "Broken" means the packages may be ripped, a few may be missing/mismatched, etc. They were delivered to the district’s Family & Community Engagement (F.A.C.E.) program which will ensure that they are distributed to students who are in need. This is the same size shipment of socks that Academy donated to the district in April. Thanks Academy!

October is Dyslexia Awareness Month!

“Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurobiological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge.”
