Sixth Grade Moving to New Campus

Anna Education Center Will Become 6th Grade and PreK Campus
Posted on 04/04/2019
This is the image for the news article titled Anna Education Center Will Become 6th Grade and PreK CampusSixth grade will be in a new location next school year. Beginning Fall 2019, Anna Education Center (AEC) located on Sherley Road will serve 6th-grade and prekindergarten students.

The decision to move 6th grade was based on overcrowding at the middle school. Anna Middle School is currently overcapacity by 100 students. Moving 6th graders to AEC also allows the district more time to build Anna’s second middle school.

“Anna ISD is blessed to have the AEC,” said Superintendent Michael Comeaux. “The building has served as an overflow campus many times in the past for Anna ISD. While our town grows, using AEC allows us time to build new campuses. We are excited to have the building come alive once again with students, teachers and staff.”

Sixth graders will continue to have opportunities to participate in band, choir, art, and computer class. In addition to these electives, we are excited to offer a new pre-athletics course next year for our incoming 6th graders.

Gabriel Medrano, the current assistant principal at Joe K Bryant Elementary, has been named as the principal of AEC. Mr. Medrano has been an educator since 2008. Prior to coming to Anna three years ago, Mr. Medrano taught 5th-grade math, 7th and 8th-grade science, and was a math interventionist.

“Mr. Medrano is a great fit for the principal at Anna Education Center,” said Mr. Comeaux. “We appreciate his dedication in guiding our faculty to invest in academic excellence, instill values, and inspire our students every day.”

“It is a great honor and privilege for me to be able to serve as the Principal of the Anna Education Center for the 2019-2020 school year,” said Mr. Medrano. “It is exciting and humbling all at the same time to be able to follow my 5th-grade students from Bryant as they become 6th graders and to join all the other new 6th graders from the other campuses. I know that all my 6th-grade and prekindergarten students will have a wonderful school year filled with excitement and fond memories.”

Anna Education Center is located at 601 Sherley Road, Anna, Texas. Please email gabriel.medrano@annaisd.org with questions regarding this change.
