#GCISDAtHome

Although we may be physically separated, we are still together in spirit as one community! Many of you have been sharing your #GCISDAtHome moments on social media, but now GCISD Fine Arts has stepped in to take it up a notch!

GCISD Fine Arts wants to hear from all our talented musicians, dancers, thespians, and artists! During this closure, use this Flipgrid to upload videos of you playing your favorite instrument, singing your favorite choral song, showcasing a piece of art, performing a scene from your favorite play, doing a dance routine, etc.

Approved videos will be seen on the GCISD Fine Arts Flipgrid, and the very best may even be featured on GCISD's other social media platforms.

We want to showcase YOU - Show us what you've got! #GCISDAtHome #GCISDFineArts


Learning@Home: Week 2 Information

The Week 2 resources for Learning@Home are now live and ready for students, parents, and teachers to use. As last week’s focus was connectivity and enrichment, this week we are focusing on routines, review, and relationships. The goal will be to help students begin creating learning routines at home using content and tools that are familiar.

Upon accessing the Learning@Home site, you will find the link to the Week 2 content review section. Select your grade band (PK-5, 6-8, or 9-12) and then click on the corresponding grade level (elementary) or courses (secondary). Elementary review activities are designed to include parent involvement. Teachers will be in touch with students regularly this week to interact and expand upon the course information found on the Learning@Home site. Please email learning@gcisd.net if you have any questions or need support.
