Principal's Welcome 2022-2023
Dear GRMS Family of Friends,
Guadalupe Regional Middle School is blessed to have served hundreds of Brownsville children for over twenty years! Many of our past alumni are now professionals, graduate students, and beginning their own families, and often give credit to the years of formation at GRMS that helped them achieve their goals. Our current students know the legacy they are entering is one that is filled with blessings and prayers from our school community.
The 20th Anniversary in 2021-2022 marked a milestone for the school, and our annual Scholarship Gala was a special night where all shareholders came together to celebrate God’s work. The Most Rev. Daniel E. Flores, Bishop of the Diocese of Brownsville, said it best, “This is God’s school and we are called to make His work a success in the lives of His children.” At GRMS, every faculty and staff member answer that call each day when they come on to campus and work with the students. Every donor to the school also answers that call with their generosity in sustaining this school each year. Together the efforts reap the benefits in the life of each student and their future.
Our families at Guadalupe Regional Middle School are extremely appreciative of all that the school presents to their student. Many know that without GRMS, the opportunity of a Catholic education would be merely an unattainable dream. These families are just as committed to GRMS in doing their part to support school initiatives, events, celebrations, and our faith formation with their student. After twenty years, the legacy of siblings is celebrated, and “big brothers and sisters” are now proudly supporting their younger siblings in “their school”. This is a joy to see their pride, and alumni visits are filled with smiles and love when on site.
Everyone plays a role in the success of this school beginning with our Heavenly Father. It is through His master plan that we are all here together, each doing their part, in ensuring that GRMS continues into the future.
Thank you for supporting the mission of Guadalupe Regional Middle School, for doing your part, and most importantly, for answering God’s call to make a Catholic education available to all His children.
Live Jesus in our Hearts, Forever!
