Gifted and Talented students achieve above grade level in their strength area. They display characteristics of unique creativity and high motivation in their strength area. In order to provide those students with the opportunity for additional academic challenges to support their continued education growth, teachers and parents can nominate gifted students for assessment.
We had a great time in G/T math! We tested our toothpick bridges and EVERYONE'S bridge was successful! They were able to withstand the wait of 6 chapter books and a book basket! We also dabbled a little in some logic puzzles and brain teaser games. Primary G/T is over for the year. Thanks for sharing your kids with me on Thursday mornings!
GT testing for 2nd-5th grade is wrapping up. Parents will receive a letter regarding the results of the testing in the next couple of weeks. 1st grade GT nominees will be tested in January. Thanks for your support as we work through this process!

We just finished GT assessments for grades 2-5. Identification results will be coming home in Fox Folders in the next couple of weeks. (1st grade testing is in January.) 5th grade GT students are participating in a Lunch Bunch book study of the book The Survival Guide for Gifted Kids by Judy Galbraith.
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.
