GT September News

Each year schools in St. Vrain Valley School District complete a process to identify students in grades K-12 who demonstrate exceptional ability or performance in one or more academic areas and may therefore qualify for Gifted/Talented educational services.  These students perform at least two years above grade level in their strength area(s) and require additional academic challenges in order to support their continued educational growth and progress.  In addition, they usually demonstrate characteristics of unique creativity and high motivation in their strength areas.

Here’s to another great year of GT! Thanks for sharing your amazing students with me.

It is now time to think about Fall testing. Would you like for your child to be tested for GT? The testing at our school is done in the Fall of each year. Please email me your child’s name and current homeroom teacher. Also, let me know what areas (math and/or language arts) you would like for your child to be tested in. I will let you know more in the Fall. THANK YOU!
