Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! We are excited to kick off a SUPER year with a great staff and students. Our theme this year will be “HEROES for Children” and we will work throughout the year to help every child at Giddings Elementary to succeed.
Through partnerships with families, we strive to work together to meet the needs of all students. We appreciate your support at home and encourage you to read with your child each night. If you have questions about your child’s day, please contact their teacher by phone or email.
We are looking forward to a great year!

Alisa Niemeyer
GES Principal
