Cold Turkey book cover

We are so lucky! Students got to hear a sneak preview of the brand new book, Cold Turkey! The author Corey Rosen Schwartz joined us via Googlemeet to read the story aloud. Then students were able to ask questions to this bestselling author. We are so thankful! 


What a great night! Math & Science Night was a huge success! Students and families together learning about math & science! The Perot Tech Truck was part of the fun too! 


2nd grade students had a very special field trip to our own GISD Natatorium! For 4 fun-filled mornings students learned and practiced water safety. "We are so thankful for the GISD Natatorium staff they were so kind and patient with our students.", reported 2nd grade teacher,  Mrs. Chairez.

Bluebonnet Reading Club for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students

Every year librarians across Texas make a list of the 20 best books. Every student in grades 3,4 and 5 who reads 5 of the books from the current list gets to vote for their favorite. Students across the state will read and vote in January!

After a student has read one book from this year's list they need to fill out this form. When students have read 5 books and filled out this form for each book they will be invited to vote for their favorite!
