If you are interested in volunteering during your child's library time, send me and email at terri.freyou@gcisd.net ​and I can share their time with you.

Texas Boy's Choir - Conflict

This week, we realized we have a scheduling conflict with a school-wide performance of the Texas Boy's Choir and our planned math practice STAAR test on Wednesday morning. Because we have already communicated to you and students about our practice STAAR dates and we have organized staff in the building to pull out small groups for testing, we will not be going to the Texas Boy's Choir performance.

Teaching Growth Mindset Through Pokemon Go

We found this article very interesting and relevant for teaching children (and ourselves) to develop a growth mindset. Hmmm...some things to consider! :-)
