“I was extremely proud of them!” shared Jason Kramer, Sixth Grade Center Robotics coach. “All of our teams performed well overall, especially in the skills challenge.”  “Looking ahead I believe we have a lot of potential to improve as we continue through the season. 


Congratulations to all the GISD teams!  Well done!
