Gifted and Talented Program
Gifted and Talented Program nominations are now open for the 2023-2024 school year. These nominations are for students in K, 1st, 3rd, and 4th grades. Because 2nd graders all take the COGAT test, their nominations are done in a different way, and it is not necessary for them to be nominated at this time. If you believe your child should be tested for our GT program, please click on the link, fill out the forms on the website under the tab labeled Referral Forms (there will be 3 forms: Referral form, Permission to Test, and Parent Survey) and return them to Mrs. Dupre. Nominations will be accepted until December 15, 2023, and testing will take place between January 23rd and February 3rd. If you have any questions, reach out to Mrs. Dupre, our GT coordinator at email@example.com.
