Enrichment

In the primary grades (K-2), students will qualify for Enrichment by a teacher referral and/or scoring at or above the 95th percentile on both the math and reading NWEA.  Formal identification of a gifted child in these young grades is very imprecise, therefore, teacher observation will play an important role in this process. In order to best meet each student’s needs, we will continue to monitor progress.  We will formally re-evaluate student placement into Enrichment each school year.  


In the intermediate grades (3-4), students will qualify for Enrichment by consistently scoring at or above the 95th percentile on both the math and reading NWEA.  Students will use project based learning, critical thinking, and problem solving skills for challenging activities.  Fourth graders will also participate in JESN-our school news program.  Qualifying third and fourth graders also have the opportunity for Math Enrichment and Reading Enrichment, which focuses on specific skills in each subject area.  In order to best meet each student’s needs, we will continue to monitor progress.  We will formally re-evaluate student placement into Enrichment each school year.
