Class Dojo released a video series this past weekend on perseverance. What a great lesson to teach our kiddos!

LEAD WITH GCISD

We recently came across an article posted around a month ago about the schools in Texas who received all possible distinction designations on their STAAR scores from last year. We were happy to be recognized in the article as well as recognized for how big of a deal our achievement actually is:


“Earning all possible distinctions is a significant accomplishment and should signal to parents that there is extraordinary work taking place on that campus.”
