Project Potential

Welcome to Project Potential! Please check this website for information and resources for gifted students.

Google Classroom

This is the main method I use to communicate with students. Assignments and resource materials can all be found on students' classroom pages.

Each student has two Google Classrooms for Project Potential. One is the for the actual class, and the other (Sub Tub and Resources) is full of lots of interesting and engaging resources that can be explored if I am absent, if a student is finished with his or her class work, or anytime they like. When I am absent, students are required to also turn in an account of what they researched and completed on each day.

To access Google Classroom:

  • Click on the Google Classroom Icon on the opening student page

  • Then click on the words on the Project Potential Class icon.

  • Stream is new information (newest shows first)

  • Click on top (Classwork ) for assigments, resources, links, materials, and challenges

To View all Assignments and Due Dates

Are You an Expert?

Calling all engineers! Are you an engineer, or do you know one? The 6th - 8th grade classes are working on the Future City challenge, a large engineering/aerospace design project, and will be building models of their future cities on the moon. We are looking for engineers that would be willing to mentor a student group and assist the with their models and the required moving part for their projects. If you, or if you know someone who might be interested, please contact Mrs. Dacey at : christina.dacey@wesdschools.org
