K-5 Services

We believe that students possess intellectual, creative, socio-affective, perceptual-motor, and other abilities. With these basic abilities the child interacts with teachers or parents and participates in learning, training, and practice events.  With encouragement and support, a child's talents emerge from these experiences. 

We provide enrichment services for all children in grades K-5.  All students receive enrichment services by the GT teacher through the Makerspace Program. 

 Makerspace is modeled around the STEAM curriculum based on the idea of educating students in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics using an interdisciplinary and applied approach.  Rather than teach these areas as separate and discrete subjects, STEAM integrates them into a cohesive learning model based on world experiences, challenges, and application of knowledge.  Projects are engaging, and encourage students to problem solve by thinking critically and creatively.  Content knowledge is explored through hands-on experiments and challenges.


Bosqueville GT information ** GT Identification Process **
GT identified students in grades 1 through 5 will be served in a grade-level weekly pull-out class.    GT students will be encouraged to participate in UIL competitions, Duke Talent Identification Program, Baylor UYP, individual contracts, and other GT programs or activities offered.  In addition to the pull-out class, GT students work on independent projects and meet with the GT coordinator to create an enrichment activity program log/contract.
