Big image
On Wednesday and Thursday, an ambitious group of incoming 7th graders got a head start on UIL Academics at the UIL Summer Camp organized my Mrs. Fulmer. Campers learned about all UIL subjects to see which ones were of interest to them. Campers also had a fun opportunity to use all of their UIL skills to complete a CSI investigation to solve a crime of who stole the GJHS UIL results. Thank you Mrs. Fulmer for creating this wonderful experience for our students, thank you to the parents who allowed their children to have this experience, and most of all thank you to the STUDENTS who are taking the initiative to get involved in UIL during their summer break!
