Gifted Services 1st-4th

 
1st - 4th Grade Gifted Services
 
The purpose of the Gifted and Talented program is to implement, maintain, and support a variety of instructional strategies that address the four core academic areas: reading/language arts, math, science, and social studies. Students in the G/T program demonstrate skills in self-directed learning, thinking, research, and communication.  
 
Students in 1st - 4th grade participate in a "pullout" program that allows them dedicated time with the G/T teacher as well as their gifted peers.
 
Elementary pullouts happen weekly for 2-3 hours.  During that time students are engaged in rigorous problem solving and creative thinking activities.
