Dr. Armando Cuellar Middle School was awarded the Common Sense Media's Digital Citizenship certification for the 2017-2018 school year. 

Digital citizenship builds an awareness among students about a variety of situations they may encounter online: cyber bullying, suspicious sites, malicious website attacks, phishing sites, trustworthy research sources, and plagiarism online. 

Good digital citizens know how to combat cyber bullying and learn to identify questionable sites and find trustworthy resource pages for their school work. As society becomes more reliant on the internet and student presence online is an ever-growing reality, it is good to know that Dr. Cuellar students are aware and knowledgeable about their digital selves and the digital world around them.


CONGRATULATIONS to our staff pick of the month, Ms. Sarah Ortegon. 

Ms. Ortegon is our teacher of the month for her tireless, unyielding pursuit of student excellence in education. On many days, you will find her on campus before sunrise working on lessons and preparing for the day. With a firm, unwavering stance she looks forth to the future leading her students to another great year!

Congratulations to our Employee of the month, Mr. Daniel Andrade. 

Mr. Andrade just does not have "no" in his vocabulary. Whatever the challenge, Mr. Andrade is up to the task. With a friendly demeanor and a "can-do" attitude, Daniel can get things done! 





Employee of the Month: Ernesto "Ernie" Desiga

It is not uncommon to see Ernie around campus. He hustles everywhere to ensure things get done. With a willingness to help, a smile on his face, and a hustle in his step, it is no wonder why Mr. Desiga was chosen as employee of the month. 

Teacher of the Month: Paulino Gonzalez

Mr. Paulino Gonzalez is a rising star in the Mathematics department. An awesome disposition and a "can-do" attitude in the classroom, students always seem eager, and willing to participate in his class. 







Alberto Herrera, Junior at UTRGV.

Former student of Dr. Armando Cuellar Middle School. An outstanding student at Dr. Cuellar MS with a bright future!

"He was a character.  He would sing in class when were quietly doing work. All the other kids would laugh, smile. and listen. He was one of our standouts in football as well.  It is a blessing to teach him here in middle school and then coach him at east.  We few privileged teacher/coaches watch them grow from young preteens to young men and women."

"Albert was one of the hardest-working, self-driven students, both academically and athletically, that I've had the pleasure of teaching.  I was not surprised to see him graduate in the top of his WEHS class, and I am not surprised to see him continue to be successful in college.  He would settle for nothing less than his best."
