Classroom Spotlight

In our class we learned about some famous African Americans in honor of Black History Month. Our students created projects that represents what some African Americans invented and acknowledged the ones that were a part of The Civil Rights Movement. Here are a couple of people that we focused on Garrett Morgan inveted the traffic lights and Rosa Parks stood up for what she believed! (Yellow bus).

Thank you Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Floyd for sharing!

Dustin Stamey our (ROTC) Huss Student that works very hard here has requested that we purchase a Fish, Chicken or Combo plate from him to support Huss. The food will be deliverd if we purchase 10 plates or close to it. If not he will give you a ticket to pick-up from the school. The cost of the tickets are $8 each.

Please sign up in the office and leave your money with Lauren or Karon by Tuesday or Wednesday. He is very anxious to sell tickets and show how well he can do.

Thanks for your support of our GCS students.


Frontrow recently opened 3 new tabs - Curriculum, Sessions and Growth. With School Edition, teachers have full access to the Sessions and Growth tabs, both of which are very powerful for monitoring student progress. You'll also have access to two sample project-based units for each grade level under the Curriculum tab.

Our Representive said that teachers from all over the country are getting really excited about Curriculum, so he'd love to hear what you think about it, so try it out!
