The GATE program this year serviced 41 students in grades 3rd - 6th under the direction of Mr. O’Neil and Mrs. Garcia. Each academic school year students focus on a specific theme. This year the theme was Extreme Exploration. During the study sessions, students engaged in extensive study of past and current world explorations. They collaborated on an Animoto video project in which they highlighted an explorer, an exploration or made a proposal for a new exploration. Three groups represented Foster at the District’s GATE showcase. One received honorable mention.
