The GES Green Team needs clean grocery bags for an upcoming project they will be doing to help the community. Please send in as many plastic grocery bags as you can. Your student can place them in the big box underneath the stairwell in the 3rd grade hall. Thanks in advance for your help!
Dr. Little came to visit Gilbert Elementary School last week. His first stop was to be interviewed by the morning news show crew. They did an excellent job perfecting their interviewing skills. The students learned a bit more about Dr. Little in the process.
Then Dr. Little and Mr. Branham toured the school and visited every classroom. The children were delighted to show what they were learning. We hope Dr. Little will visit again soon.
Mrs. Singleton’s and Mrs. Dutton’s 3rd grade classes did a fantastic job sharing their reading strategies with Mrs. Crumpton’s and Mrs. Holliman’s 2nd grade classes recently at GPS! Our 3rd graders gained a greater understanding of their reading strategies when they had to explain them to someone else, and the 2nd graders got one-on-one instruction in 3rd grade skills. They all thought it was fun! Everybody wins!
