Friendly Letters for Grade 3

Mrs. Tilger and Mrs. Dawson’s third graders reinforced their friendly letter writing skills in MS Word. They have been working on the friendly letter format in writing. Formatting, clipart and revising are all a part of the lesson to help make their letters fantastic! Of course it never hurts to let the teacher know how great she is!

Gattis Teachers Teach Dell Executives

On November 3rd, Dell Account Executives reached out to our Gattis Educations for a lesson in teaching. Ms. Dawson, Ms Hubele, Ms. Baker, Ms. McCollum, Mr. Brillhart and Ms. Buckles were selected to represent out school as outstanding educators. The comments from the Execs were very flattering and they were impressed with each of the teachers teaching.  Some of them were trying to figure out the math problems, one said they were scared of their own children bringing home the math to work on with them in coming years. One of the Executives has students in a non-Promethean school in the district was asking when those teachers would get the technology we have available here at Gattis. A big thank you and shout out to our Fantastic Gattis Team!
