A Big Deal!
Our very own Mrs. Gillespie has been chosen to work with a team at Roper Mountain Science center! This is huge, because it is the first time a Social Studies teacher has worked with a team at Roper Mountain. She will be helping the team create an outdoor Native American study area. This area will allow students to walk through and have hands on activities to discover how Native Americans used to live. It will be a glimpse into that time era! We are so proud of you, Mrs. Gillespie! Way to go!
