Below is what we will discuss:
AGENDA: Start of 7th and 8th Grade GT
1. Groups will be assigned for the first 2 weeks, then you will get to choose a group.
2. I have 2 GT Websites
One is a My General GT Site it has information for everyone; including, teachers, parents, and students.
The other website is my Student Activities Website: Geared just for you!!!!:
Find the GT links from the Birchland Park Edline site: https://www.edline.net/pages/Birchland_Park_Middle_School
Monthly schedules can be found online.
3. Do not come to GT from Math Class. I am not pulling students from math class at all this year. If you are scheduled to come to GT from math class, you may come to GT during tutorial instead. I have tutorials all three lunches every day except Monday.
4. Before coming to GT, Check in with your classroom teacher and let them know that you have GT. Be polite.
Mrs. Hill included this in her Principal Notes for all teachers yesterday:
"GT classes for grades 7 and 8 students will begin this week. Identified students will receive GT services 2x/week and a rotation schedule is used so as not to impact the same class each week. Per the district GT procedures students will not be held accountable for missed classwork unless it is a major assignment, lab, or test and the student is responsible for making arrangements directly with the teacher to make up this type of work. Please contact Suzanne Collins if you feel a student is falling behind due to missed classes."
5. GT Begins Wednesday for 8th Grade and Friday for 7th Grade
