  • Alex Fingers is the new Alpha Wolf of CTMS!

    Alex Current Cross Timbers Middle School Assistant Principal Alex Fingers has been named the new leader of the Wolf Pack. Trustees named Fingers as the principal during their regular meeting on Monday, July 25, 2016.


    “I look forward to continuing my service in this new role as principal to the CTMS Wolf family,” Fingers said. “We have great students, staff, parents, and a supportive GCISD community and I know great things are to come from the Wolves as we strive to move forward the “Wolf Way”.”


    The search for a new principal for CTMS began this summer when Lisa Dunn accepted the position of Director of Elementary Services in Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD. Input from campus and community representatives was solicited to determine the desired qualifications and characteristics of a new principal for CTMS.
