TGA had a blast on this year’s retreat to Lake Conroe! Students were engaged in a variety of activities that enabled them to recognize their personal abilities and appreciate the strengths of all the members of the group. The variety of activities provided each student with the opportunity to appreciate their own individuality and respect the individuality of others. One purpose of this trip is provide us with opportunities to function as a team and further develop our sense of community. Activities included laser tag, workshops, boatride,  and a scavenger hunt. The entire student body was involved in planning and arranging activities.
