What's Happening

  • GT Field Trip Rescheduled

    Technology Integration:

    This year I will be helping teachers integrate technology into the core curriculum. The students will be exposed to websites, apps, and innovative devices to help them create, produce, problem solve and collaborate with each other.  Students and teachers will be using iPads, laptops, projectors, document cameras, and Smartboards regularly in the classroom.

    What are we learning in GT?
     K – 4:  Adobe Spark
    All students have stories to tell.  Stories could be about their learning, family, experiences, or their dreams!  They just love to tell stories.  Adobe Spark is an online and mobile graphic design app where the students will be creating images, videos and webpages to tell their stories.  Adobe Spark provides students the opportunity to share and celebrate their learning!
