In Case You Missed It

So far this year we have met with Freshmen, Sophomores, and Seniors (Juniors, your time will come) to discuss HAL at East for 2015-2016. We discussed some of the following:

  • Again, we will be offering Seminars over a variety of topics that are pertinent to gifted teens.
  • We will also continue to offer guest speakers from career fields; many times those speakers have internship (sometimes even paid internships) opportunities for students.
  • There are also a number of academic competitions that are available to you; check your email and read these newsletters.
  • Speaking of checking your email; we have a Remind account set up to send you reminders throughout the year. Please sign up for that by texting the message @imhal to 81010

Why am I identified for HAL services?

You were identified as a High Ability Learner at some point in your education.

The Nebraska Department of educations states:

Children capable of high performance include those with demonstrated achievement and/or potential ability in any of the following areas, singly or in combination:

• general intellectual ability

• specific academic aptitude

• creative or productive thinking

• leadership ability

• visual or performing arts

• psychomotor ability

At some time during your middle school or high school years, a plan for your learning has been developed to help your teachers know how you learn and to guide them in helping you challenge yourself!

We hope that we can be of assistance in these areas. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Sailors, Mr. Bossman, or Ms. Kinen.
