The Genuine GT Gazette

Florence Elementary: October, 2015

A Great Start..

It's been a wonderful couple of weeks! I have enjoyed getting to know each of my kiddos and learning about their own unique gifts and talents. Their personalities are starting to shine through!


Thank you for all of the wonderful craft supplies that you have supplied for your kiddos so far! It's hard to me to pull all of those things together for so many. If you ever have any extra craft materials or paper towel/ toilet paper/wrapping paper rolls, and you would like to donate them to the GT classroom, please send them my way. The kiddos love them!

GT Curriculum Night for KHS Feeder Pattern Schools

Wednesday, Oct. 14th, 5-6pm

350 Keller Parkway

Keller, TX

In an attempt to meet the needs of our GT families in the Keller HS feeder pattern, the Advanced Academics department will offer an alternative date for the GT parent information night on Wednesday, October 14 from 5:00-6:00 p.m. at the Education Center located at 350 Keller Parkway. The meeting will take place in the Texas rooms which are located on the East side of the district office off of College street. It says “teacher training” on the outside of the doors. Please enter through those doors since the main entrance will be locked. Tracy Johnson, Coordinator of Advanced Academics, will lead the meeting, however GT Specialists will not be in attendance. If you aren’t attending the KHS Homecoming parade on October 5th, please plan to attend the District GT parent information night at Central HS from 7:00-8:00. All GT Specialists will be in attendance at that meeting.
