Gifted and Talented
The GT field trip to Texas Renaissance Festival was so much fun, we are planning a Saturday trip to Moody Garden on the first weekend in April. We will be doing a fundraiser to help cover some of the cost.

All GT students should be working on their Texas Performance Standards Project.
10 sources with cover sheets and 10 guiding questions with answerss should be done before Christmas Break.
