Well, it was certainly a short week! Check out our fun happenings coming up below!

NEW Donors Choose Project!!!
Donations of any size will help my kids. Right now, any contribution you make to my project will be doubled by Sphero. Your donation will brighten my students' school year, and you'll get heartfelt thank-yous from my class and photos of your gift in action.
Here's my classroom request:
Let's Code It!
To have your donation matched dollar for dollar , just make a contribution on that project page -- donations will be doubled automatically, but only while funding lasts.
If you know anyone who is passionate about education, please pass this along. My students and I greatly appreciate your support.

Upcoming Field Trips
Avondale GATE School of Choice Information Nights!
We had a FANTASTIC turn out for the 1st Information Night. We have one more on February 7th. Remember, if you are a CURRENT GT school of choice family, you do NOT need to re-apply. Current families are more than welcome to come to the meeting, since it will be held at Meadows and I'm sure you and your child(ren) are interested in seeing the new school! Just keep in mind there will be many improvements over the summer, and there are students using our classrooms this year so it will look slightly different next year.
