Bad Weather Make-Up Days Set for April 3 and May 22

Midlothian ISD bad weather make-up days are scheduled for Friday, April 3 and Friday, May 22. The state requires that school districts designate two bad weather make-up days on the district calendar. Since MISD was closed all day on February 23 and February 24 due to inclement weather, students and staff must attend school on April 3 and May 22 to make up for the missed days of instruction. MISD has applied for a waiver for the additional days missed.

Gaskamp hired for Wrestling and P.E.

Please join me in welcoming David Gaskamp to Midlothian Heritage High School as our Head Wrestling Coach and PE Teacher starting in 2015-16!

From Blinn, I received a scholarship to play for East Texas State University where I played Guard and Punted. In 1991 I was lucky enough to make the All – Lonestar Conference Team at the Guard position.

After that I jumped into the high school ranks where I began my teaching and coaching career in 1997 at my alma mater, Round Rock Westwood High. I taught P.E. and coached Football and Track while at Westwood.

In 2000, I took a job at Killeen High where I taught Health and P.E. and coached Football and started up a brand new Wrestling program. We won two wrestling district team titles and have had numerous district champions, and regional and state qualifiers. This past season we sent 3 wrestlers to state where my heavyweight placed 3rd.

Colors: MIDLOTHIAN BLUE & RED (with CHROME accent)

Special thanks to all of the MISD staff and students and the Midlothian community members who served on the Mascot/Color Committee. Also, thank you to everyone who offered suggestions and feedback during the process. The committee considered over 1000 responses to surveys throughout the process.
