4th GRADE TEACHERS WITH MUSIC ELECTIVES. READ
Mrs. Williams will only have 6 weeks to teach and put on the programs for Texas Public Schools Week. It will be very important for her to have the lab kids at TLC to teach the songs because this will be the ONLY time they can become familiar with them. Also, Tutoring pull-outs during this first six weeks during music time should be avoided. Since she only see them twice a week it is very difficult for them to learn the songs up to performance level if they are not present.
So unless you tell these students parents they will not be in the music program, DO NOT pull from music. You can pull from computer if you need to tutor until the program is over.
1) Storage-All storage (including closets-and yes he went in them) have to be 24" below the ceiling. So don't stack stuff up.
2) Skinny halls have to be clear for exiting. This means no desks or tables in those hallways. All displays have to be on a bulletin board.
3)He doesn't want anything hanging from ceilings.

Please make sure testing accommodations are put into DMAC and the student is currently using them. Print the form and turn it into Mrs. Hoover.

These are just a few characteristics to consider before you refer a student. Please review previous characteristics I sent on the brief dated 1/15/20. Remember, GT is more than good grades. Also, keep in mind the expectations and rigor of the GT curriculum.
