Things That Happened This Past Week

We made it through our first 5-day school week of the year! We also gave out our first PBIS award to a student who demonstrated academic curiosity and persistence!

Mr. Declan is the first recipient of the Be Engaged Award! He has been reading all about Ancient Egypt and King Tut and loves to share what he is learning with those around him. Ms. Ashline, when asked about Declan and his academic engagement, said, "Wow! Just Wow!". Way to Go, Declan, GIS is super proud of you!
Classroom projects, math talks, a visit from Coco the Monkey in French, awesome morning meetings, beautiful visuals to guide students through breaks and academics, community building in classrooms, exciting explore times, and so much more.


All students can succeed, and to witness every adult believing in student success through their attitudes, words, and actions is a joy to see.
