EWIS students are receiving daily incentives for their Big Kahuna sales. Your child will be able to go on the Monster Party Bus for selling only 15 items or 20 total as siblings. Online sales go through November 10. Catalog sales are due this Friday, November 3. THANK YOU ALL!!
Early voting has begun. GISD's tax proposal is near the end of the ballot. Voting "For" allows the ISD to increase the M&O rate by 3 cents. GISD would then lower the I&S rate by 3 cents so the overall tax rate would remain at 97 cents. The new State revenue would be used to balance the current budget.
Voting "Against" the tax proposal would require GISD to reduce its current budget by $800,000, yet the tax rate would stay at the 97 cent rate. Since the State budgeted for GISS passing the proposal, the state would hold onto the funds versus releasing them to GISD.
Bubble gum in school??? That's right! Sixth grade students chewed gum today to see how many "chomps" they could chomp in 15 seconds, 30 seconds, and 60 seconds. Then they predicted how many chomps in 5 minutes using their own data. Regular chomps, big chomps, little chomps...There was a lot of chomping. What a fun way to learn about ratios and rates.
Mrs. Pringle is at it again! She challenged these GT students to use the words they received by adding them all to a story they wrote. They discovered the words to be used through the numbers referenced on rocks. The kids loved it!
4th grade had a blast today playing a Blooket challenge on European Explorers. Some of them are pictured with a project they just completed on comparing and contrasting Native American history. Mrs. Truett is doing a great job of facilitating the study of Texas History that helps history come to life for the kids.
5th grade students were recognized today by Mrs. Hogan for doing such a phenomenal job in reading!! Looks like it was a big hit. We can't wait to reward them and others for their amazing continued efforts.
