Decisions, decisions, decisions... choosing your child's school can feel like one of the most important decisions in your child's life.

There are so many things to consider. While it can be tempting to try for a school that’s on the top of everyone’s list, first make sure the school meets your practical needs. For instance, if you have to be at work at 8:30 and school starting time is 9:00 — with no early-morning care — that may be a deal breaker. By the same token, if there’s no bussing, but the school is 10 miles away, it may not be a good fit for your family. Finally, if it’s difficult or impossible for you to send your child to school with a lunch, ask if the school provides one and how much it costs (public schools all offer a free lunch for families who qualify).

Well, if it's great teacher to student ratios, before and after care, bus transportation, after school/extracurriculars, and free lunches, LOOK NO FURTHER!! Go to www.gtwacademy.com, and APPLY TODAY! K THRU 8! STEM PROGRAM! TECHNOLOGY FOR EVERY STUDENT!!! Visit www.gtwacademy.com and apply NOW!!!!

Greetings Bobcats, and Future Bobcats as well.

The transition to Kindergarten can certainty be difficult at times. Well, here are few tips that aren’t usually top-of-mind for parents as their kids enter kindergarten:

Routine bedtime. Scholars begin school early, many before 8 a.m., and maybe earlier. It is very important that your child has a routine bedtime. Their day is filled with rigorous learning and activities that require a full night’s sleep.

Practicing their first and last names. This may seem small, but it is important for your child to know their first and last name, not a nickname. Many parents may have called their child(ren) by a nickname since birth. It’s time to begin calling your scholar by the name on their school documents, and have them identify it.

ABC’s. It is recommended that scholars know their alphabet before starting kindergarten. This helps decrease confusion and increase comprehension.

30 minutes of reading time. Begin to read to your child daily for at least 30 minutes. Make sure your scholar is sitting up and paying attention. Stop and ask questions. This is to enhance your child’s sitting and listening skills.

Counting. It is recommended students know how to count to 20.

Being Independent. Begin to have your scholar put on their own clothes. This includes zipping up pants, tying shoes, wiping their nose, and putting on a jacket.

Eat with your child daily. As you are eating, practice opening containers, condiment packets, and opening their own food. This will help during lunch time.

Writing. Scholars should be able to write some letters. Allow your scholar to trace on plain paper. Also, allow them to write you a story once or twice a week. The writing does not matter – it’s all about creativity and exposure to writing.

Using words. If your scholar is used to pointing at things that they want, begin to have them use words. This helps with social skills.
Motor skills. Practice holding pencils, crayons, scissors, and glue with your child. These items are used daily.

Lastly fellow Parent, starting in kindergarten, be a partner with your child’s teacher and school. Students can excel academically if there is structure and support, plus social interaction!

Greetings Bobcat Families!!! What an awesome day it was here at GTW!!! A bit of our time today was used to introduce our Innovators to Local and State Law Enforcement. The goal is to teach, and introduce them to who protects citizens' rights. This exercise helps in the development of police as role models, and the enhancement of support for rules and laws to the community.
A special THANK YOU to our Finest: Shelby County Sheriff's Officers, Millington Police Department, and our Tennessee State Troopers for stopping by to spend time w our Innovators. We thank them for all that they do for our safety!!!
