Welcome to Mrs. Pillon's G&T and SWE and Study Skills website.
G&T and SWE are in full swing and we're loving it!
The great end of education is to discipline rather than to furnish the mind; to train it to the use of its own powers rather than to fill it with the accumulation of others."-- Tyron Edwards

The focus for the G&T classes will be to further incorporate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) concepts into the curriculum, with a special focus for the year on ENGINEERING. With that goal in mind, your student will be bringing a list of recyclables needed to stock our classroom with the materials we will need to fuel our creativity in designing and engineering . Please keep it in mind and continue to send in the collections at any time during the school year.
