We are excited to present to your student an opportunity to participate in our GATE Science Academy. The purpose of the GATE Science Academy is to challenge our GATE students with a science-based, “hands on” curriculum that will enable them to perform inquiry-based experiments, ask questions, and to develop responses based on reasoning.
The GATE Science Academy will be offered at no charge to our GATE students one time a month beginning in December. We will offer two sessions to accommodate our large GATE group with the first session beginning on Thursday, December 2nd from 2:15 p.m. - 4:15 p.m. and the second session on Friday, December 3rd from 2:15 p.m. - 4:15 p.m. Each session offers the same curriculum, so you only need to register for one session each month (except in January when two distinct programs will be offered). Each session of the GATE Science Academy will be held at the outdoor lunch tables.
Our instructor will be Mrs. Terrie Beck, a credentialed Science teacher extraordinaire. Mrs. Beck will bring rigor to challenge our students, creativity to every session, and her knowledge of the Science Standards to support our students.
I hope that you will consider having your student participate in our GATE Science Academy. If your student is enrolled in the GATE program and is interested in participating, please register by clicking the link here to reserve your spot by December 3rd. Each session is limited to the first 50 students that sign up, so do not delay. Only students that are registered will be allowed to participate in that day’s session. We are optimistic that we will have 100% participation of our GATE students in the GATE Science Academy!
