A Fresh Start for 2014-2-15

As summer draws to a close and teachers are busy readying their rooms, we begin to set goals for the new school year.  What will you accomplish this year?  Will you work to raise your grades?  Do you plan to join a club and run for an office?  Perhaps you have goals for the athletics' teams.  Will this be your year to be recognized at UIL?  Whatever you do, wherever your talents lie, set a goal and get ready to make it happen.

We have goals that we have set too.  We are looking forward to our first year as an AVID school.  We have a new class schedule.  We have high expectations for our students and have set goals and planned activities for the year that will ensure student success.

We will have Jordan Sonnenblick joining us again in the fall.  Our sixth graders should read "Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie" over the summer.  Seventh Grade has been assigned "Curveball" and eighth grade should read "Notes from the Midnight Driver".  Take some time this summer to read a few of his other books too.  GISD has also published a suggested reading list for students.  Be sure to take advantage of summer reading programs at the local libraries. 

We hope that you have achieved your summer goals and we look forward to seeing you again on Aug 25.
