GATE Enrichment Opportunities

Fall 2022 Gifted and Talented Education

Elementary School Innovation Clubs this Fall!

Elementary schools will begin to offer Innovation Clubs for GATE identified 3-5 graders in September. These clubs will be taught by a GATE certified teacher, or by a partner teacher from the Institute for Educational Advancement. Innovation Clubs offer opportunities for students to engage in an interest based pathway of study, collaborate on STEAM based projects, and develop critical and creative thinking through problem based learning. Your school will be reaching out to parents of students in grades 3-5 within the next month to offer the opportunity to participate in Innovation Club.
