My name is Luis Grimaldo and I am 7th grade Math/Science teacher for Elite College Prep Academy. I earned my bachelors of Science in Psychology from the University of Houston-Downtown. This will be my fourteenth year teaching at HGA. Two things that i am very passionate about is teaching and basketball. My goal is to have 100% passing with 50% advance level on the Math STAAR Test.

Good Morning!!!
I have some exciting news for all of you! This is our last week of school, and the assignments will be a bit different for us!

IF YOU ARE MISSING ASSIGNMENTS/ HAVE NOT SUBMITTED ALL OF YOUR ASSIGNMENTS- These must be submitted by Wednesday! You may submit these as assignments as soon as possible, and once everything is turned in you may start summer break early!!

IF YOU HAVE TURNED IN ALL OF YOUR ASSIGNMENTS- Summer is starting early, as there are no official assignments for this week! The hard work and effort that you have put in these past few weeks has paid off by earning you an extra week of summer break!! Email me if you have any questions. Thanks
