This school year we are excited to have time built into the daily schedule to meet the needs of our Gifted and Talented students. During advisory, the students are allowed to create, investigate, research a multitude of topics. Some of the projects pictured below.

G/T Spotlight Award Recipient:

Ms. Lantrip provides amazing opportunities in her class and across our campus to engage our G/T students in meaningful projects. She’s the master of differentiated instruction in her classroom and has found creative ways to group students through the use of break out rooms that connect both virtual and In-Person learners. Her instruction often extends beyond the 4 walls of her classroom by engaging students in outdoor investigations that revolves around inquiry-based learning. In addition to serving the g/t students in her science classroom, Ms. Lantrip also leads a g/t advisory class in which students develop, lead, and conduct their own projects based on personal interests. Ms. Lantrip is a consistent leader among her fellow teachers and a true advocate for students, and she deserves to be recognized for the important work she does every day.

Cara works so hard to diversify for the GT kids not just in her class but with everyones else's too. She spends a great deal of time working on engaging lessons to challenge their learning styles. She is a tremendous asset to our campus.
