Cardboard Challenge: The object of the challenge was to use found objects (trash) and make one of the six designs using only the found objects. 4th and 5th grade GT students had a lot of fun doing this!





In Spring 2022, 4th and 5th grade GT students hosted an Open House and tours in the GT classroom to showcase their Medieval projects. Students’ projects included rose stained glass, illuminations, tapestries, castles, and individual family crests.
