Gladiator News

Dr. Hector P. Garcia Middle School ~ Northside ISD

February 5-9, 2018

This week our current sixth grade students received information from their counselor, Mrs. Nieto, on course registration for their 7th grade year. They took home a copy of the course selection worksheet to discuss with parents. Students should return the completed form to their PE coach. (For students that are not enrolled in PE may return their form to the counseling office.)

A copy of the course selection worksheet for 2018-2019 seventh graders can be found here:

For more information, contact Adrianna Nieto in the counseling office.

Our current 8th grade students received information on course registration for high school from Brandeis and O'Connor counselors. Ask your child about which endorsement their interested in and what classes are available at their perspective high school. Check our website for high school information:

Thank you PTA and parents for providing goodies for our staff this week. It was much appreciated!

It's a GREAT day to be a Gladiator!

Counselor Appreciation

February 5-9 is National School Counseling Week. Please remember to show our counselors how much they are appreciated! They go out of their way to ensure our students have a trusted adult they can confide in and have a safe place to go, if needed. They get to know the students on a personal level and advocate for them in many ways.

Our counselors truly are the best!

Adrianna Nieto- 6th grade

Nanette Yzaguirre- 7th grade

Julie Minnis- 8th grade/Head Counselor

Thank you for remembering these special ladies!
