Dear Gladiator Families,

Hello Gladiator Nation!!


It was soooo great to be able to attend our football and volleyball scrimmages this past week! It was great to see families, have students in the stands, and show off our new gym floor! It looked like both our sports teams are ready for the regular season to start!! We can't wait. It seems we shared an old "Dress Code Reminder" image in our past newsletters. Our mistake. We attached the updated one below. We are revisiting our "shorts" policy and will communicate any change we decide to make via this newsletter. Speaking of shorts, students may wear any shorts (of appropriate length) on Fridays with any spirit shirt!! We have Gladiator Games shirts (PTA), Football shirts, Garcia Spirit Shirt, kindness club shirts, and more! Remember any of these t-shirt purchases raise funds for our students!


Next week is Freedom Week! Check out the flyer below! Hope to see our Gladiators participate!


We have a new Librarian!! Her name is Mrs. Delgadillo! Here is her first HGMS Library Smore!

Traffic

Traffic has improved so much!! Thank you for al your help. Just a couple of reminders: there is no parking in the front pick up area. If your student is not out when you arrive, we ask you please circle around to get them. This helps our traffic flow. Please do not park along the street in the back of the bus loop or on street right outside our school. This does not allow for buses to enter or exit in a timely manner. Lastly, please do not pick up students in the Primrose parking lot. Not only does this cause issues for customers of the business, but causes a safety issue for students.


Devices

We are done with device distribution. If you need a device please contact our front office and we can get your information. Please remind students that there should be no phones or headphones in the hallways. They have done a great job so far. Also remind your student, for now, we are not allowing technology out during lunch. We have very few extra devices. Please remind students to bring their devices when they need them for class.

HGMS PTA

A message for the BEST PTA IN NISD!!

Welcome back Gladiator Family! The HGMS PTA is here for our students, staff and families. We host activities throughout the year for students and families and appreciation events for the staff. With your support through Gladiator Games Sponsorships and shirt purchase, membership dues, and spirit gear sales, we are also able to provide our staff with grants to improve the Gladiator Experience! We have an updated website you can use to get the latest information (http://www.hgmspta.com) and you can also follow us on Facebook.

Please stop by our tables at Market Days to meet the HGMS PTA Board members, join PTA for only $10, buy spirit gear and to become a Gladiator Games sponsor. Some of you may not know but we were the largest PTA in NISD last year. You can be part of the best PTA by joining; no volunteering required. And anyone can join: parents, grandparents, students, even neighbors or friends. Be a Gladiator Games Sponsor before July 27th and you will get your company’s logo this year’s shirt. For all the details, go to http://www.hgmspta.com

Let’s make this year the best we can! See you soon!
