We will be undergoing construction this summer financed by the 2016 bond program, so the campus will be off limits to everyone (including staff) after Friday, May 31st. We will keep you posted about new student registration and Meet the Teacher events through texts and emails.

STAAR upcoming

The last round of STAAR testing will be next week (May 13-16.) The campus will be completely closed those days.

Nurse's newsletter

Here's a link to the newsletter from the clinic:


Please be a good neighbor...

We have several residents of Glenhope Circle who are frustrated by cars blocking their driveways during pick up in the afternoon. Please be a good neighbor to our neighbors. Don't block their ability to leave their home!

Keyboarding Resource for Students

Do you want to increase your student’s keyboarding skills? Typing Club is a web-based program for Grades 3-8 in GCISD that teaches students how to touch-type. The engaging and interactive experience is gamified, so learning proper hand positioning, posture and typing technique is fun for students. Your students can even use this program over the summer break. Students can easily access Typing Club through ClassLink or by signing in with their GCISD Google account and password at gcisd.typingclub.com.

Summer school enrichment

Registration for summer enrichment is now available. There are several great classes available for your child this summer. Miss Hayes, Mrs. Towery, Mrs. Griffard, Mrs. Harris, Mr. Hendrickson, Coach Maupin, and Mrs. May are all teaching classes! The registration process is a little different compared to previous years. To view the course list and to register, please click below.


Lunch accounts

If your student has charged several meals, they will not be able to charge again prior to the end of the year. Nutrition services will be working on getting unpaid balances paid, so if your student doesn't have money they will receive an alternative meal. Please check your balance and make sure you've provided for . your student.
