Gifted Reach Out Program 2016-2017
Welcome back to GRO and to another exciting year of discussion, projects and THINKING!
The Gifted Reach Out Program (GRO) is an enrichment program. This enrichment program offers students the chance to interact with, to stimulate, and to be stimulated by their peers,while remaining a part of the regular classroom setting.
GRO encourages independent learning, research and individual product development, using creative problem solving and critical thinking.
Please do not hesitate to contact me during the year with any questions or concerns. I firmly believe parent-teacher collaboration is essential for the success of your child’s education.
I appreciate and thank you in advance for your support.
Testing for the Gifted Reach Out Program
Parents of current first through fourth graders interested in having their child tested for the district’s gifted program (GRO) should send a written response no later than April 17, 2017 to their child’s classroom teacher. Testing for those eligible will begin in May and results will be mailed home. Current kindergartners interested in the program will be tested in December 2017. Please send requests next year to the appropriate first-grade teacher.
The GRO program provides enrichment for students who have demonstrated high capabilities. The work is represented above grade level and is rigorous. Children are expected to fulfill their regular classroom and GRO proficiencies during the year.
