October GT

As we ended the 1st 9 weeks GT spent October having fun with a Murder Mystery who-dun-it game and Scattergories. They also did a self-reflection piece at the beginning of the month after completing a self-care unit where they learned about mental health, knowing when you need mental breaks and how best to take care of yourself.

This month also focused on superpowers! What superpowers do our students have? They took all the information they've learned about themselves so far this school year in GT and created a superhero mask that highlighted their strengths. Students created a mask with their character traits on it and the advisories had to guess whose mask was whose as students presented on it to the group.

As we move into November and December students will start their community gratitude projects.

In January we will be mailing the first semester GT evaluations home so you can see what your child and GT advisory teacher have to say about their experience thus far this school year in GT. We will also send another evaluation home the last week of school in May. Both evaluations will go in your child's cumulative folder as well.
