More exciting G/T News
The Shakespeare Festival will take place this year on Friday, April 24th at the Denver Performing Arts Center downtown. More information to come! The festival is always a fun time for everyone!
We have students returning to the Regis University’s Summer Leadership Institute as well as new 3rd and/or 4th grade students that join the program each year. This is an academic program to challenge our gifted and high achieving students as well as teach them leadership skills. Congratulations to the students in this exciting program!
We also have students each year that are a part of the Academic Mentors program. Each year there are students that get to work with a professional in their field of interest. Last year, we had one student that worked with an Engineer and another student that worked with a Lawyer. It is a great way for students to receive hands on experience in a career they may be interested in pursuing one day.
