Gilbert News

Many 6th graders are at Camp Grady Spruce learning outdoors. Tuesday 5th grade had a paper chain challenge. They worked in teams of 4. They will complete the STEM CHALLENGE on Thursday with follow up questions. Be sure to ask your student their strategy to get the longest chain.

Hook Parents

Today we worked on properly introducing ourselves and interviewing Staff members for our Hook News. Please ask your child to show you what they learned. We will be using the green screen to film our News Production on Monday.

GT Testing

We are beginning the Spring GT testing window. We had numerous referrals this time. Please be patient with me as I begin this screening process. We will begin screenings at the end of February after all of the paperwork is filed.
