Gifted Education Month – GEM – January 2017

On January 26, we were delighted to have local, school and state leaders visit our classroom. Students created presentations to share their “voice” in gifted education. They also demonstrated their STEAM skills through various activities. I appreciate all of the parents who wrote letters of thanks and support to share with our special guests.
