WELCOME and WELCOME BACK to Giddings Middle School

The 2017-2018 School Year is finally here! We hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing summer. The members of TEAM GMS are eager to meet our new students and to reconnect with our returning students.

The first day of school is Monday, August 28, 2017. School begins promptly at 7:50 a.m. Parents should utilize the "Drop-Off" lane in front of GMS when bringing students to school. If parents need to speak to someone in the office or register students, please park in the parking lot and do NOT park in the lane in front of the school.

We ask that parents of students who ride the bus be patient the first couple of days of school. There may be slight delays with student pick up and delivery as the transportation department works to finalize the number of stops per route. If you have a questions regarding a bus route, please contact the GISD Transportation Department at 979-542-9237.

We want to thank parents and guardians in advance for your support of Giddings Middle School Students and Staff. Working together, we will continue to provide a positive, secure learning environment built on mutual respect and acceptance. Please contact the office at 979-542-2057, if you have any questions.
