Mindset: Employers Care

We located this article "6 Signs You Have a Growth Mindset," which speaks from potential employers. Mindset is a life trait that should be carried in many facets. We hope the work we do with our kiddos today help them in whatever future path they take!


Do you know about the GCISD Education Foundation? They are a non-profit organization whose main passion is to help our district. Recently, they gave grants to teachers district-wide and our own Miss Hayes was a recipient! She used the money to build a soundproof video booth. Thanks to the Education Foundation, we are able bring our innovative ideas to life!

Check out the video booth here:
