Home of the Eagles
We would like to offer our congratulations to our Ochestra and Choir Students for their amazing performances the last 2 weeks. AAE Orchestra students participated in Solo and Ensemble competitions while our Choir students auditioned for the All-region Choir.
Orchestra earned 169 superior ratings and medals and 25 excellent ratings and ribbons. All of the Outstanding distinctions went to AAE students. Judges could have selected 12 students for this honor but chose 14. More proof that your hard work was worth the effort.
Choir was equally successful with 27 out of 29 students auditioning and being selected for All-region Choir. 3 students were chosen to sit in the first chair position in the choir. Congratulations on receiving these top honors.
GISD Power Hour
GISD is excited to host two community meetings titled "Power Hour: Giving Parents the Tools to Help Their Students Succeed." Both meetings will offer the same STAAR/EOC information to assist parents with students in grades 1-12. Information in English and Spanish lists the dates and times for the events.
