GT LEAD

LEARNING EXPERIENCES FOR ACADEMIC DISCOVERIES

TESTING CONTINUES

Tis the season for testing! Thank you all for your patience during this time. Currently, we are testing students in Grades 1-4 districtwide for GT Services, whether it be for GT LEAD or for the ASPIRE Academy. I will be testing up to Spring Break, but as testing winds down, I wanted to let you know that I will try to see your children for mini GT Lead, as I miss them very much!
