Principal's Message

recognized campus Dear Gallego Elementary Friends and Family,

My name is Jorge Silva and I would like to introduce myself as the new principal of Don Jose Gallego Elementary School.  I am honored to have been selected as the new principal and I am excited to join this school community! Over the last fourteen years, I have worked as an elementary teacher at H. B. Zachry Elementary School and as an assistant principal at J. Z. Leyendecker Elementary School. I am excited to bring my skills as an educational leader and to work with you to ensure the success of our students. 

I would like to personally welcome everyone to the 2019-2020 academic school year. My faculty, staff and I are very excited to meet our new students and families and we look forward to seeing our returning students and families once again!

Please note the first day of school will be on Monday, August 12th, 2019. Parents can view the district school supply list and dress code by clicking on the links below. Our district will also be hosting a Meet the Teacher Night the week before classes begin, so please check back to our school webpage and social media sites for dates and times.

On this note, if you would like to stay connected to our school news and updates, you can follow us on Twitter and Facebook; see links below. And as always, our school webpage is a great platform to view campus events on our campus calendar in addition to our student and staff highlights and memorable moments throughout the school year.

If you have any questions or need assistance with anything, please feel free to call us at 956-273-3100. It is our mission to ensure that all students and families are prepared to embark on a successful and memorable new school year!

Mr. Jorge Silva, Principal
