  • Gearing up for school!

    Posted by Rachel Walker at 8/2/2016

    In less than 3 weeks, we will welcome over 600 Gator's into the SWAMP!  We are working hard to get the building ready for an amazing year.  The staff has spent lots of time, this summerl, learning new ways to work with our students.  Our 5th graders will be using AVID strategies to help them become college and career ready.  We are exciting about implementing these learning processes at all grade levels throughout the year. 

    The campus made huge academic gains this past year on STAAR.  Our preliminary scores predict we will meet standard in all indexes.  That's is a huge accomplishment for the students and staff.  I'm looking forward to another amazing year of academic success. 

    AVID Ready!

  • Back to School

    Posted by Rachel Dangerfield at 8/26/2015 2:00:00 PM

    We are back!  I love the energy in the building.  The students are excited to be back in school.  Of course, we had a few that have not quite gotten their sleeping pattern back in rhythm.  But, they quickly adjusted and managed to have a great few days of school.

    We strive to keep the students engaged and excited about school.  More importantly, we want them to know they matter.  This year, our theme is "Every Child, Every Day!"  "I Matter!"  There is no time to waste in getting our students prepared to be college and career ready for the 21st century workforce.  Thank you in advance for helping us make this an exceptional year for your child.

  • SWAMP Things - Week 5

    Posted by Rachel Walker at 9/27/2013
    Week 5 went by so quickly.  There were lots of fun moments throughout the week.  We had our 1st "Thank You Thursday" for the staff.  Our students are so fortunate to have EduGators that care about them so much.  We fed them Frito-Pie and they loved it!  We are starting to see more parents come out and volunteer their time to help in the classrooms.  I love seeing home and school working together.  Superheroes and Sidekicks are everywhere throughout the swamp!  Gator gear is flooding our halls.  Our P200 students are recognized every Tuesday and Thursday for showing Respect and Responsibility!  Most importantly, Gators are college bound!  We begin every week with the mindset of going to college.  Students and staff wear college shirts to honor their commitment.  Remember, you can follow us on Twitter @GarrettGators and #garrettgators13 for daily tweets.  Until next week...see you later Gators!

  • SWAMP Things - Week 21

    Posted by Rachel Walker at 2/8/2013
    This week we celebrated 100th day of school.  There were teachers dressed like they were 100 years old, students creating projects with 100 items, and lots of fun filled learning experiences to commemorate the the 100th day of school.  It was also Counselor's Appreciation Week.  Mrs. Edwards works tirelessly for our students.  We appreciate her everyday.  Our 5th graders were visited by the Null Middle School Counselors to plan their 6th grade classes.  They were pretty excited about their transition visit. Make sure their forms are filled out and returned by the deadline date.  Friday Night was Family Bingo Night.  We are always excited about the community support and participation in the school events.  Mrs. Anderson was the Rockstar of the Week.  Thank you for being a leader!  Until next week...see you later Gators!
