    The Gifted and Talented , Art, and Theater students will take two field trips to the Shenandoah Valley Regional Governor's School. The field trips will provide activities for students in 4th and 5th grades. The first trip is October 27.  This is sure to be fun!
    In December, Mrs. Edwards will begin her afterschool Drama class. We look forward to their end of the year performance!  Hopefully, we will also have a Spanish after school workshop.
    Honor choir auditions begin soon. Good luck!  We also look forward to the Math 24 games in the Spring.  Rhythms Around the World with Kim Cary will present a GT workshop. You will have fun playing various instruments to the music from around the world.    I look forward to hearing your tunes. :)
