GT Evaluations

Spring Evaluations were due from teachers on May 14. I emailed the evaluations to parents this past Friday to the first email in our Gradebook system. Please check all emails. If you haven't received your child's evaluation please contact Amanda Hunt (ahunt@nbisd.org) A digital copy will be put in your child's cumulative folders online. If you have any questions or concerns about the evaluation itself, please email your child's GT advisory teacher. Thank you and have a great summer!

6th Grade

Social Emotional Learning

Sixth grade students targeted critical social emotional learning skills such as becoming more self-aware, resolving conflicts, and developing positive relationships by playing board and card games as well as participating in outdoor activities.

College Projects

This May we finished working our College Projects and presented them to the class. We had presentations of colleges from all over the U.S. and the world...from Germany, to Australia to California and back here in Texas, as well. Our GT students did an amazing job and had fun learning new things about different types of schools! After our college projects we had some fun playing group games.

8th Grade

Entrepreneur Project

8th grade GT did an amazing job selling their hand crafted items at the New Braunfels Farmer's Market May 15 and May 22. They represented ORMS very well! Thanks to all the parents who supported their children as 8th grade GT made this project happen this year. Ms. Cowan and Ms. Bryant both wanted this project to go forward and it couldn't have happened without the support of the 8th grade GT parents. We hope your students found it to be a rewarding experience, as it's the highlight of our year.
