Happy New Year!

Chatting with Charles

Princessipal's message

Hi there! I hope your three day MLK weekend was restful and peaceful. Mine was certainly restful. Since I got my wisdom teeth pulled and was on medications, I slept quite a bit. However, I did manage to watch the Dallas Martin Luther King Parade; the bands were great! We've just completed the third six weeks, so be on the lookout for new progress and new Six Weeks at a Glance charts. I cannot believe we made it to the midpoint of this school year; it's all downhill from here- 18 weeks to go!


I've extended the deadline for long-sleeves and hoodies. Please send all orders in tomorrow. Be advised that this is strictly a pre-order sale, so if you want a long-sleeve for your student or yourself, this is the time to get one. Hoodies- $21, long-sleeves- $14. Please make all checks payable to Gideon PTA.
