GATE students are identified in the fourth grade. The 4th & 5th GATE students are grouped for reading on a daily basis using their CELDT, CST, and CAT6 scores. This allows students an enrichment opportunity during their regular instruction. GATE students are also given extension activities or projects in other subjects. This may occur through grade level grouping, or within their regular classroom. Teachers from each (4th & 5th) grade level plan these extension activities together. After school enrichment classes are offered during the school year. The GATE students completed a writing project with the principal. The students worked with the principal during their instructional day. The students wrote a story which was filmed at ComCast studio.
