GT Services will continue through this upcoming school year!


Our Gifted & Talented scholars work on different projects throughout the year.  Last semester GT scholars created a peace path between the gym and the 400 wing.  This provided our scholars in the portables with a peaceful, clean and beautiful path to the building that kept them from getting muddy.
