Happy New Year! Welcome 2018 and New Target Students!

Happy New Year Everyone!

We hope everyone had a fun and relaxing holiday break with family and friends! Since we started testing just after the Thanksgiving break, we are anxious to see our students and get back to work in the classroom.

Please check the page of your grade level and teacher to get updates!

New to Target? You should’ve received two copies of the same letter. Please be sure to send a signed copy back to school with your child on January 3rd. We need that signed letter in order for your child to start Target the following week. There is a Target Open House scheduled for Friday, January 12th @7:30am in the Keheley Learning Commons. We look forward to seeing you there. For supplies, your child will need a binder – about 1 1/2 inch with 5 dividers labeled. HW/Tally, PreAlgebra, Affective, Cognitive, and Extension. These are the main topic areas that our Target standards cover. Please don’t hesitate to email one of us with any questions you may have. We will be attending trainings January 3-5 but will be able to answer email.

October Already?

Hello Parents!

It was great to see some of you during conference week! If you missed out on a conference and would still like to chat, please send us an email and we’ll find some time for a phone conference or one on one at school.

I ran across this brochure while researching some information for a parent. Many of you are such amazing advocates for your children. Navigating through choices in education with a gifted child can be daunting.

A new subscription button should be appearing on the home page of our site. It will alert you when additions to the website have been made.

Thank you for all you do for your children!
