Zapata Middle School had their first pep rally at Hawk Stadium this morning. 

Good luck to the Merlins as they play against Veterans tonight here at home!

Great job teachers and students on our first ADSY Day! 

ADSY days are special days for students who are invited to attend school.  ADSY days are a great way for students to catch up or get ahead in their schooling.  

ADSY Days are "going beyond the call of duty and doing more than others expect." ADSY Days are what Hawk Pride is all about!


Lady Hawks placed 2nd at the Border Olympic XC meet on Saturday,  August 21, 2021.

Mrs. Priscilla Garcia's Kindergarten class learned about the Gingerbread Man this past week. Students were given the opportunity to explore the beautiful A.L. Benavides Elementary school campus to familiarize themselves with school leaders and support staff. The students received a gingerbread man cookie to decorate on their own. The gingerbread cookies were donated by a parent volunteer, Griselda Garcia

Kindergarten students at Villarreal Elementary School went around school in search of the Gingerbread Man.  

This thematic unit is taught so that students get familiar with the school, administrators, teachers and staff.

Students had fun looking for this popular character!

Congratulations to our ZHS students for placing at the Rio Grande XC Meet!
