Congratulations to Amelia Strickland, one of our First Grade students, who had her artwork selected to be in the GISD's Full View art celebration on November 9th at the Curtis Culwell Center. She drew a monster from her imagination, and a middle school/high school student will be enhancing her image to be more realistic/to their interpretation. Every school in GISD participated in this art show. We are so proud of her and can not wait to see the finished product.
