Abbett All-Stars!


Abbett announces a new principal

Abbett Elementary is happy to welcome our new principal, Betsy Davis Cummins! Mrs. Cummins comes to us from Coppell ISD where she served as a highly respected elementary school assistant principal. At her roots, however, she is a product of GISD having attended school at Club Hill Elementary, Brandenburg Middle School, and South Garland High School. We know that she is going to be a wonderful addition to the Abbett family.

Fine Arts in action











Abbett All-Stars love to be creative in every way, especially when it comes to music and art. Our hallways are filled with samples of the students' creations assembled under the guidance of our wonderful art teacher, Mrs. Brand. In music class with Mrs. Payne, students have been creating original compositions with new alto recorders purchased in part by Abbett's ever-supportive PTA.

Support our students and families

Abbett Elementary is committed to partnering with parents to ensure student success. Our Parent Involvement Policy and our Parent-School Compact outlines how we will work together to support and encourage all students and families.
