Gilbert GT Pods

Good Afternoon,

All of the Pods at Gilbert are GT. The students are spread out within the 3 Pods. I will continue to pull the GT students twice a week during their SWARM time. This will allow the students GT enrichment without them missing valuable class time. I assure you, that your child will be served in the classroom and through the pullout program. We will have parent meeting soon after school gets going. I will make sure to let everyone know in advance the date. Please feel free to call or email me if you have further questions or concerns.

7th & 8th Grade Summer Assignment

It has come to my attention that several of the incoming 7th grade students were not aware of the summer reading project for the GT class. Please do not stress if the project is not complete. We will make arrangements for those students to complete the assignment at the beginning of the year. 
 
However, this assignment was handed out at the Parent/Student meeting in May and in class at Gilbert. I know summer is busy and the last thing we think about is school.
