Enrichment Experiences


SYNC Curriculum

WIN Enrichment

This year at Cheltenham Elementary we are continuing the iLab learning experience for all of our students. The makerspace is a place where students will be able to make, build, and design things.

All students in the building will experience lessons in the makerspace this year. Each classroom will be scheduled for two projects, one in the first half of the year, and another during the second.

The SYNC Curriculum is a parallel, project-based curriculum in language arts and mathematics that provides additional enrichment to students who need more challenge than the regular curriculum can provide alone. Students who demonstrate outstanding, above-grade performance meet twice a week with Mr. Aungst for supplemental instruction.

Mr. Aungst is offering several interest-based enrichment activities during WIN period. Each of these is available to students on a rotating basis in grades 3 and 4 based on interest. Though we cannot accommodate all students in a grade at once, we hope that over the course of the school year, most students will be able to experience one of these engaging activities.

Mr. Aungst also routinely screens students who may need a gifted IEP. The screening process includes a review of available data, feedback from parents and teachers, and several different screening tests. For more information, or if you think your child may need a gifted screening, click here.
