GT Fair to be held at SES

Staff Reports

The Douglas County School District’s gifted and talented student program’s third annual GT Fair will be open to the public May 13, 6:30 p.m., in the library and multi-purpose room at Scarselli Elementary School, 699 Long Valley Road, Gardnerville.

Viewing of projects on display will take place until 7 p.m., when a number of students will give oral presentations on their projects. Among the projects are a survey of Sweden, a project about Roman ruins and a first-person interpretation of Mary McLeod Bethune, an educator.

The displays will give an idea of the kinds of critical and creative thinking and research projects that students in grades 2 to 6 have been working on this year, according to GT teacher Bobbie Williams.

The fair will include some 200 students from all Douglas County elementary schools. Gifted and talented students spend about 150 minutes once a week doing special GT projects. This is in addition to their regular classroom work.

At the fair, students in 2nd and 3rd grade will provide refreshments and 4th graders will serve them.
