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.

7th & 8th Grade Summer Assignment

I hope you have had a great summer! Please do not forget to complete your GT assignment for Mrs. Clemmer and Mrs. Hubbard. This is for the students that enrolled in the 7th and 8th grade GT class. If you have any questions please feel free to email me.
