Some of our G-T Middle School Students participated in the Iowa Lake Community College Jazz/Show Choir Festival yesterday. This is an educational festival in which area show and jazz choirs perform and receive feedback from experienced clinicians in preparation for the show/jazz choir season. Here are a few pictures from their performance!
The GTRA FFA chapter enjoyed attending the NW District fun night at the Spencer YMCA last Monday. The event was hosted by the NW district FFA officer team, lead by 2017 GTRA graduate and current Iowa FFA NW State Vice President, Cole Reiman. While at the event, students participated in a dress up contest, dodge ball, and completed escape room challenge. GTRA FFA members are pictured working through their escape room, dressed in 90’s workout gear, and with their championship dodgeball belt!
