GIFTED NEWS CREW IS HERE!

Parents,

Our young scholars will be embarking on a new journey starting next week. They will begin to learn to use our school news crew multi-media! Students will become proficient in script writing, directing, producing, green screen techniques, camera and sound board use, multi-media transitions, and uploading.

We will begin working to tape extended news casts in the upcoming weeks!


Here is a trailer of what is coming up in our future!

Please enjoy!

Our Scholar of the Week is...

Kaileb Quiroz!

Kaileb enjoys playing soccer and practicing his karate. When Kaileb is with his family, he likes to play checkers and have some delicious pizza. At school, he actively works to improve his math, for speed and accuracy. He really likes math and the idea of solving math problems (like pieces to a puzzle).

Kaileb also enjoys the "Wings of Fire" the book series and always finds time to read! When he grows up, Kaileb wants to attend the University of Florida (GO GATORS)!

Thank you Kaileb for being our Scholar of the Week!
