It’s that time! It’s the time that so many of us have been waiting for!

It is time to apply to the Avondale Gifted Magnet Program!

This fall, the Avondale Gifted Magnet Program launches third and fourth grade at Woodland Elementary in northern Troy. This program is open through School of Choice to students in Oakland County.

Using project-based learning, this program will provide a unique educational opportunity for gifted children. Students will be able to explore areas of interest in depth, discover the connection between subjects, and accelerate in their fields of strength. Surrounded by their gifted peers, they will receive acceptance and support for their academic, social, and emotional needs. This program is led by a teacher with an endorsement in gifted education and ten years of experience in teaching including three with gifted students. Backed by the support of the principal and the district, Avondale is committed to the success of this program and its students.

Registration for this program has already begun and goes through May 10. Details on this program are available at http://www.avondale.k12.mi.us/departments/gifted-and-talented and the School of Choice application and information is at http://www.avondaleschools.org/enrollment  You can watch a recorded Parent Information Night at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKmVqajZEqc or join our parent group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/NEOgifted/ to learn more.

If you are interested in this program for your child, please call Hillary Olance at 248.537.6049 or email her at hillary.olance@avondale.k12.mi.us by Friday, April 28 to get more information and schedule any tests for entrance to the program. Registration is still open until May 10, but early applicants get first choice of testing dates.

Please pass this along to friends whose children would benefit from this program!
