Every child has a right to learn something new everyday. Gifted children thrive in learning environments that present challenge and wonder throughout school lessons and activities. Welcome to Cherry Creek’s gifted community, where educators, families and community advocates partner for support, instruction, and information in the education of gifted children. This partnership motivates the implementation of school and district goals that provide appropriate educational opportunities for gifted student. The shared responsibility of implementing these goals fosters development of gifted exceptional potential over time.
As the local affiliate for the statewide advocacy group, we are focused on improving the lives and opportunities of gifted students. This is accomplished in four main areas:
- helping people understand the characteristics of gifted students,
- training teachers in different strategies to create dynamic classrooms that challenge and engage gifted students,
- providing families with information on how to advocate for the unique needs (both academic and affective) of their gifted students, and
- supporting statewide and national laws and policies that assure gifted and talented students access to appropriate academic and social-emotional programs.
JOIN us as we strive to build a community to improve the educational opportunities for the gifted and talented children of Cherry Creek!
