Spencer County Gifted and Talented Services has had a great year with your gifted and talented student. We have seen significant growth in students through our differentiated classroom experiences. Our pull-out services at the elementary level has resulted in many projects that have grown students in their presentation skill and level of thinking. Field studies have been offered at all levels to encourage student growth in the arts and sciences. High School leadership students have honed their skill assisting with various workshops and fairs at the high school and middle school. Middle School students have been challenged with differentiation in classrooms for high level thinking using Genius Hour technique in science classes. Some students have also been offered Geometry through Edgenuity. We are proud of the many successes our students have had this year and look forward to the challenge of a new year in the fall.
