App of the Week

IPEVO Whiteboard allows you to draw and annotate directly onto real-time camera image from your iPad, images in the Photo Library, or a blank whiteboard. In addition, by using the IPEVO iZiggi-HD Wireless Document Camera, or by pairing any one of IPEVO’s document cameras with the Wireless Station (WS-01), you can wirelessly stream live image from the document camera to your iPad and annotate that live image as well.

Rachel's Challenge

April 6th is our second annual Kindness Day in GCISD! Wear your jeans and Rachel's Challenge shirt and join us in committing to spread kindness each and every day. There are acts of kindness happening all over GCISD and we want to celebrate them. One simple act of kindness may start a chain reaction. Will you join in this chain reaction?
