Principal's Corner

Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year and home of the mighty LIGERS.

We are excited to have you at Don Jose Gallego Elementary School. The first bell rings at 7:40 a.m. The second bell rings at 7:45 a.m. In order to ensure that All students are successful in their classroom and STAAR assessment,  dismissal time for all students has been changed to 3:00 p.m.   This allows for 15 additional minutes for your child to meet academic goals.

We also need your updated number in order for the School Messenger System to be able to call you for important meetings or updates.

We would like to thank you for always bringing your child to school every day. You must send an absence slip with your child immediately after an absence. We are also monitoring tardies. We will be giving out tardy slips to all students that come to school after 7:45 a.m. They are considered tardy if they arrive to school when announcements are being read. Your child must be sitting in their teacher's classroom by 7:45 a.m.


We would also want to thank you for your continual support in ensuring that all students are successful at Don Jose Gallego Elementary School.

We distributed important information to all parents on Thursday night.  If you did not receive a copy of the letter that was given out or the new traffic route for O'Kane St., please ask for a copy in the front office.  We will gladly provide you with the necessary information.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate and call the school at 273-3100.

I am anxiously awaiting to see your children at school on Monday, August 26, 2013, at 7:45 a.m.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Lupita Cortez

Daily Announcements

Because we believe

Look outside; it's morning
This is a day you'll remember
Hurry, get up and go
There are those who believe in you
Don't give up.

Once in every life
There comes a time
We walk out all alone
And into the light
The moment won't last but then,
We remember it again
When we close our eyes.

Like stars across the sky
And in order to shine
You will have to win
We were born to shine
All of us here because we believe.

Look ahead and never turn your back
On the caress of your dreams,
Your hopes and then,
Turn towards the day that will be
There is a finish line there.

Like stars across the sky
And in order to shine
You will have to win
We were born to shine
All of us here because we believe.

Don't give up
Someone is with you.

Like stars across the sky
We were born to shine
And in order to shine
You will have to win.
