Gifted Referral Window is Open

The 2018 – 2019 Gifted Referral Window opens October 9th – 26th for students in 3rd – 5th grades.  Parents / guardians should submit written requests to Mrs. Rettig.  Referrals are not automatic.  Students are screened but parents/guardians who want their child to go through the gifted identification preccesss must first send a letter or email to Mrs.Rettig.  The entire process relies soley on multiple criteria: ability/ achievement test scores, grades, parent rating scale, professional rating scale, and possibly, an interview or observation.  No requests will be taken after October 26th.

Ginjer Clarke

Ginjer Clarke chats with Mrs. Farnham’s class.

On Thursday Mrs. Farnhan’s class met a special visitor in the library storywell.  Because they turned in the most summer reading responses they won a virtual visit from author Ginjer Clarke.  The class asked some very thoughtful questions and learned a lot about what it takes to be an author.

Catherine Nelli, a rising senior at Freeman High School, has been busy creating a beautiful mural in our cafeteria.  This is her Girl Scout Gold Award project.  She hopes that it will teach our students about female role models throughout history.  We can’t wait to see the final project in the fall.
