Talented and Gifted students had an enriching and eventful year thanks to Mrs. Sherman. Students researched, did classroom readings and assignments, wrote and filmed original public service announcements, created brochures and took field trips in their exploration of diversity in various cultures, languages, social issues.

Social issues relevant to them were addressed in PSA’s broadcast to classrooms. The PSA’s gave messages on anti-bullying, smoking prevention, smart texting, and the importance of recycling.

 

In their studies of human and animal adaptation, including endangered species, a year end field trip to The Wilds animal conservation park gave them a special behind-the-scenes look into how animal conservation is conducted.
