Giles Weekly Tracks
On behalf of the Faculty and Staff, I would like to wish everyone an enjoyable and relaxing summer vacation. Remember, to take time to do things that you enjoy. Continue to enhance your reading skills by visiting the Eisenhower Library and reading a book or two this summer. Continue to enhance your social skills by getting outside, going for a walk, riding a bike or playing in a basketball game with your friends. Get involved and stay active.
Whatever your passion is, enjoy it! I wish each of you an enjoyable and relaxing summer!
Finally, MAP scores will be coming home with in-person students today. If your child is a remote learner or an 8th grade graduate, and you would like a copy of your child's MAP scores, please email Mrs. Mysel at email@example.com to receive your copy.
Take care and be well!
