Open the GATE to Success
What an exciting time of the year! School has started and we are ready to begin our new adventures in GATE, formerly known as Enrichment. This year our theme is, “Open the Gate to Success.” I look forward to the discussions and experiences as we explore what success is and the ways it can be achieved.
We will continue to investigate topics using our imaginations, creativity, and critical thinking skills. Our curriculum continues to focus on concepts and problem solving which frequently leads to opportunities for self-directed research. Our areas of investigation may take us to topics studied before, but in new and different ways.
Some activities we encounter this year may be difficult to work out, but will be worth the effort. You will find not all areas of investigation have to deal with physical aspects (things you can use your senses to explore). While some investigations may generate innovative solutions, others may not. There are many ideas to investigate, so keep those senses alert. You never know where our next discovery will be found or where it may lead.
Don’t forget to stop by for Back to School Night on September 6th!
