Gifted and Talented Nominations

Now that we are in October, the window is open for nominations for Gifted and Talented testing. You can nominate your child for testing from now until Friday, December 16. Identification in the GT program requires advanced academic accountability. Students will be required to work independently on accelerated curriculum as a part of the program. Please read the following guidelines for your child's specific grade level:

Kindergarten and First Grade Students: If you are interested in having your child screened for the Gifted and Talented program, you must have a conference with your child's homeroom teacher first to discuss the requirements prior to December 16.

Second Grade Students: No nomination necessary. All students will take the first part of the GT test on Oct. 17- Oct. 21. We get scores back in December. Once we get the results, we will notify you if your child qualifies for the second part of the GT test.

Third and Fourth Grade Students: Nomination forms can be obtained on campus at the front desk or from your child's homeroom teacher. Please return completed forms before December 16, 2022 to Mrs. Masiel.
