Gifted and Talented Education is provided for all identified students beginning in fourth grade. Students test for the program in the third grade.  The GATE program is delivered by specially trained classroom teachers at all elementary schools in the district.  The PTO also offers G.A.T.E students the opportunity to sign up for extra after school learning opportunities.

Little Heros

Little HEROES knows the value of providing youth with fun and inclusive games to play at recess time. We aim to provide this such atmosphere at elementary schools everywhere. We will organize your yard and train your staff to be more involved during recess times. We also provide youth leadership opportunities which focus on character development, and allow students to gain more pride in their school. Our goal is to establish a carnival type atmosphere. With fun; organized games and safe pathways to walk and move from game to game.

Full Program Description

Teacher and Students in Science Class


Work with Principal and PTO to identify potential content for all-school assemblies. Sort through solicitations sent to the school for consideration and work within the PTO budget to secure bookings.

Sometimes assemblies are free. We try to look for multicultural, educational, motivational assemblies. 

Cornerstone ABC

Who: Our entire community of students, parents, and teachers will benefit from this program!

What:  This parent volunteer reading program aims to build the developmental assets - positive relationships, opportunities, values, and skills - that provide a foundation for a healthy, successful future for ALL our youth.

When and Where: Each month a new book will be read by a parent volunteer to your student's class. A lesson focusing on the above mentioned important building blocks of healthy youth development will be introduced. Each book and ways in which you can incorporate the lesson at home will be described in this newsletter.
