What is your child learning in GT class?

1st and 2nd Grade

Greek Hero Pizza Box

1st and 2nd grade scholars have been reading Greek myths in class. They have been learning about the moral lessons, and phenomenon explanations told in the myths. Students will pick a Greek god or goddess who they think they consider a hero. They will research, and incorporate depth and complexity displayed through a pizza box. This a working progress project that will continue next semester.

Parents, just a reminder that this week is the last week for SIP class until January! We do not have classes next week due to Kindergarten GT Identification testing and students in grades 1-5 have parties, field trips and end of semester events scheduled in their regular classrooms. Have an amazing Winter Break! SIP class resumes Tuesday, January 5th!
