Welcome to our Gifted and Talented Education page! This is a new page where I will update you on what students are learning in class that relates to G.A.T.E. and what you can do at home to help.

It also means that your child should be provided with opportunities to work at a level that utilizes this ability.

With these generalizations we make connections to the theme in as many areas of study that we can. We are looking at
