*Teachers, please complete the Teacher Perception Inventory for those students you referred to GT. I sent out the 3rd grade teacher forms, but 4th grade will be out after lunch today.
*ELA teachers, I will need help grading the GT student writing samples. I will place a few compositions in your boxes on Friday. Please grade them using the STAAR rubric 1-4 guidelines. I will email you the prompt. The 3rd graders did a Narrative Writing and 4th grade did an Expository Writing sample. Thanks for helping with this.
*Please turn in the Anchored 4 Life Crew member badges. Place them in my box in the front lounge.
