Congratulations to 2nd grader Oliver & 3rd grader Ryne on guessing the correct staff member! Who loves green, has coached for 3 years, and love books? IT'S MRS. PAISHA JOINER!
We appreciate our counselors!
SNOW DAY MAKEUP INFORMATION: The Arkansas Department of Education issued a waiver that allows school districts to change their calendar from traditional to alternate. Traditional calendars calculate days, while the alternate calendar calculates minutes/hours. Districts are allowed to "bank" instructional time and substitute that time for inclement weather days. GCT took advantage of the waiver and was able to substitute two of the three days we missed for snow. This means we only need to make up one day. We will make up this day on February 19th.
To celebrate kindness week, 2nd grade PACE students crafted handmade Valentine cards to share with patients and families facing childhood illness. Specifically, Spreading Sunshine, serving children in Le Bonheur & St. Jude's.
Mrs. Dalea's 3rd graders earned 20,000 points in Moby Max and were rewarded with slime sent just for them from the company. Congratulations!
We celebrated The Great Kindness Challenge with a kindness checklist that we encouraged students to complete. These students completed at least 12 acts of kindness from the list and were drawn for prizes. Congratulations!
These students showed the most growth on the STAR test in either math or literacy. All of our 2nd graders showed growth from their first test in September so they got to enjoy an ice cream sandwich.
Our 2nd and 3rd graders are ready to cheer on our EAGLE basketball teams tonight as we take on the Paragould Rams. Girls play at 6:00 and the boys play after, at the High School Arena. It's a great day to be an Eagle!

GCT parents and guardians: We have updated the modified bus routes for this afternoon and highlighted the drop off times. See attachment.
GCT will be open Friday, 1-19-2024 and will use some modified bus routes (see below). Although our campuses are clear and our modified bus stops are clear, we realize that some side roads and county roads still have snow and ice. We urge you to use your best judgment when deciding whether or not to travel to a bus stop or to allow a student to drive. If you believe it is not safe to travel, please stay home and simply call your principal’s office to let them know. Thank you to all patrons for your support and patience. #staygoldeneagles
