Project GATE Updates

Please see the district's curriculum page (link below) if you'd like more information regarding Project GATE. This link includes Dr. Nasshan's parent night information/presentation, a parent LAB appeal application for download, and the Project GATE program brochure where you can read about curriculum and programs.

In addition...

To reduce testing and because LAB scores are valid for two years, Lincolnwood School District decided not to administer the LAB test to students who have a valid score on file. Because all GATE students took the LAB last spring, they will NOT take the LAB again this year. As long as your child performed well in GATE class(es) this year, s/he will continue with their GATE placement for the 2015-2016 school year. I will communicate with you if I have any concerns and feel there should be a change in placement. Likewise, please let me know if you have any concerns or questions about your child continuing in GATE programs.

Thank you!

Parent/Teacher Conferences

To second grade Project GATE reading and math parents,

Please use this link to schedule a parent/teacher conference with me on the evening of Wednesday, March 18. This conference is optional but can take place if you have questions or concerns to discuss. I will attend your child's portfolio conference on the evening of Tuesday, March 17 in his/her classroom.
