As we start and new school year, I want to thank all the students, parents, teachers and staff that have welcomed me back home so that we can show off our South Side Pride. I want to let all our community members know that together everything is possible. You have the commitment of the entire Dr. J.G. Cigarroa Middle School faculty and staff that our students will exceed all academic standards that the State of Texas uses to measure student success. Students please reflect on this quote, "What hurts more, the pain of hard work or the pain of Regret?"
