Highly Capable Support at the elementary level supports materials and teacher training programs essential to challenging this unique group of students. The Foundation will also assist middle and high school highly capable programs as needs arise.
During the 2017-18 school year, the Foundation awarded more than $10,000 to the Highly Capable program, which supports close to 900 students. The grant was applied to a variety of needs, including classroom resources and equipment purchases. For example, the grant was used to purchase robotics kits, which students will continue to use year after year. The kits generated hands-on time for students to put coding, problem solving and teamwork together.
"We were super impressed with their inquiry, discovery, perseverance, and growth mindset. Thanks for making it possible for our students to have this amazing technology and for showing us how to use both tech tools so that we could use it in our classrooms!" - Jilian Murdock, science tech teacher, Cascade Ridge Elementary
