News from the GT Program:

Hello,

Welcome to my website for GT families in the ASD.

We are just about three weeks into the beginning of the school year 2020-21. As students are getting grounded and embracing (or not...) hybrid and virtual education, I applaud them all. I taught middle and high school English for an online school and the challenges we are seeing are common and our students are rocking it!

As the year progresses GT offerings in the midst of a pandemic will evolve. Currently, GT students are offered a Book Club, Writing Club, and a Math Counts group, as well as many other opportunities through our school. In the spring semester the GT Program plans to offer coding and other opportunities for students to expand their experiences.

My site will be updated as more develops. Please reach out to me via my school email with any questions.

~Ms. Howe
