Gallop Student Poll
Fifth grade teachers will be administering the Gallop Student Poll over the next two weeks. The purpose of this poll is to give us a tool beyond test scores to support student engagement. We would like for every 5th grader to participate. It is a 20 minute online poll that will give us information on how they perceive their educational experience. It is confidential and anonymous. The poll measures engagement, hope, entrepreneurial aspiration, and career/financial literacy.
Since this is an election year, Katy ISD will be having students in grades 3-12 participate in Project Vote. This will be a mock election. Our 5th graders will be able to complete their voter registration at school and participate in early voting. We will be talking about this and the election process as the election gets closer.
October Core Essential: Courage
Courage-Being brave enough to do what you should do even when you're afraid. The animal that represents courage is the mongoose. The color of the month is silver.
