Leading up to the 2019-20 School Year

During summer break, we had some fun here in GISD. During the summer months, and we had GISD Dyslexia Summer Camp and GISD Dyslexia Teacher Training. So much was learned and we had fun through it all. We also learned more ways to improve and make this year even better! We look forward to sharing these experiences with you, and all of our students.
