Happy 2017!!

HAPPIEST NEW YEAR, FAMILIES!

2017 will be an exciting time in GT LEAD, as we have many engaging and thought-provoking experiences planned for your talented scholars! Whether it be learning and debating about our brains (2nd), fighting for a cause(5th), building Rube Goldberg contraptions out of recyclable materials (4th), Spontaneous Problem-Solving and Alliteration (3rd), or getting into a Fuzz Frenzy (1st) and evaluating solutions, your children will be asking questions and problem-solving their way through challenges.


Thank you for your patience and support over the last two weeks of school with my testing schedule for Kindergarten and 5th Grade. I am so excited to be back working with your incredible children!
