School Spirit & History
Guy H. Bullock Elementary School was built in 1962, and opened its doors to our children in November of that year. Mr. Garland Bridges served as principal of Bullock from that time until June, 1977. Mr. Weldon Bowden served as principal until his retirement in 1993. The position was then held by Mrs. Kay Redd for 1993-1994. Miss Virginia Johnson was her successor and served from 1994 to 1996. Then Mrs. Chris Brunner served from 1996 to 2001. Ms. Linda Sires served as principal beginning in 2001 until 2010. Our current principal is Ms. Beatris Martinez.
The school building, a one story brick structure with three wings, contains twenty-nine classrooms, office area, clinic, library, teacher's dining and workroom, music room, resource rooms, counselor's office, 2 computer labs, and a cafeteria which can be used as an auditorium for special programs such as assemblies and PTA meetings. Playground equipment outdoors is maintained by the City Parks and Recreation Department and provides for a variety of physical education programs. In addition, a gym also provides the students with a means of extending their physical education indoors.
Bullock was remodeled inside and out during the summer of 1997 and again in 2009 when the third wing, new library and science lab were added. Our special programs include full-day Kindergarten, Bilingual and ESL classes for grades PreK through five and two Learning in a Functional Environment classes for special education students who are not able to succeed in the general education classes fulltime.
Bullock has been a TEA Exemplary rated school seven times and our students continue to excel in the state mandated TAKS tests. Bullock was also given the high honor of being named a National Distinguished Title One School in 2001.
