Are there small group materials that you need or want?

We are almost to the middle of the year! Can you believe that? We are in the process of checking funds and seeing what materials we can purchase to use in the classrooms. The Federal Programs department has compiled a list of great resources that can be purchased with Title 1 Funds. Please follow these links to check out the list. Go to the GISD website and click:


Intranet--Departments/Programs--Federal Programs--Title 1 Budget and Use of Funds--Title 1 Resources


Take a look at the resources that could be used for small group instruction and we will talk to team leaders next week about these items.


It really is the holiday season around here when we are giving you purchasing power!

Thank you so much to all the teachers that applied for an Education Foundation Grant! Sarah LeFan and Blair Westmoreland both received grants! For all the others, you can try again in the Spring!

During this week, the Snowflake Holiday Shop will be open before school, during lunch, and after school! This is a great PTA fundraiser and allows children to buy affordable presents for their loved ones! We love supporting our kids and our PTA!

Team Leaders or designated team member, please spend a few minutes looking at the STEAM lists on SchoolNet so that we can compile and order our needed materials. Talk with your teams about how we want to get all of these materials and we will discuss at the team leader meeting on Tuesday.
