Mr. Palapa, SGMS Principal

Message from the Principal


On behalf of the great SGMS faculty and staff, I would like to welcome everyone to Salvador Garcia Middle School! I feel honored to serve as principal of SGMS. Together, as a community, our school has been able to attain great accomplishments. TEA awarded us with 5 out of a possible 7 distinctions in 2018-2019. In 2019-2020, we were on path to another great year before the Covid-19 forced school closures. This 2020-2021 school year is proving to be like no other due to the current Covid-19 Pandemic. However, we will continue to provide great instruction, as we emphasize the safety of everyone.

SGMS is blessed to have amazing students, parents, faculty and staff. I know that by continuing our partnership, SGMS will continue achieving great accomplishments.

I look forward to continuing to work with all of you and providing our students with great instruction. On behalf of the staff at SGMS, I want to again welcome all of you and thank you for being part of our school community.
