Letter to Parents

Dear Straus Parents, 


Welcome to Straus Middle School. My name is Mrs. Gilbert-Perry and I am the very proud principal of Straus Middle School. I hope that you have had the opportunity to drive by the campus as it begins to take shape. I can tell you from my recent visit that it is a phenomenal campus that will serve this community well. 

One of my first priorities as the new principal is to meet the students and the parents of the Straus community. I am thankful that my colleagues at your current campuses have been so gracious to allow me time to meet with students over the last few weeks and to connect with you. 

I will have parent meetings via zoom on Saturday, March 27th to share updated information regarding Straus and to answer any questions that you may have regarding the campus. The zoom links will be sent out to our families based on student grade levels in early March. 

I will continue to send out weekly updates via our campus newsletter to keep you informed of new staff and updates to the campus. 

I am currently working at Northside Student Services and I am easily accessible via email at​ or 210-398-2550. 

I look forward to working in partnership with you to develop a school culture that empowers your child to embrace learning, to excel to their fullest potential, and to own his/her future. 




Mrs. Gilbert-Perry, Principal
