Important Dates and Information:

Educational Field Trip- 

7th - 12th grade GT students had the ability to visit Ultimate Air in Jonesboro April 27, 2018. The students were able to participate in many physical activities. My ability to see them drop their shoulders and relax even if only for a few hours, and be a kid in a way they are meant to be was phenomenal and awe inspiring. They were able to meet their social-awareness needs in ways they are not able to in the presence of all others. This was a spectacular field trip! 

4th - 6th grade GT students had the ability to visit Ultimate Air and HiJinx in Jonesboro May 8, 2018. The students participated in many physical and social activities. As stated above, the students were able to just be a kid. We had a wonderful time! 

Elementary Quiz Bowl- The 6th grade McCrory GT students will have the ability to participate in the WDMESC Elementary QB Tournament held in the Spring.
