Somerville contributes to Green Bay Schools Gifted & Talented Program
Employees of Somerville Architects and Engineers recently gifted $1,000 to the Green Bay Area Public Schools Gifted & Talented Student Program.
The term gifted and talented (GT) means children and youth who give evidence of high performance capability in areas such as intellectual, creative, artistic, or leadership capacity, or in specific academic fields, and who require services or activities not ordinarily provided by the school in order to fully develop such capabilities. Gifted students often come into the classroom already knowing much of what is going to be taught or they learn “fast and forever” and must wait for others to catch up. Green Bay School District’s goal for GT students is to provide the appropriate level of challenge so that they may continue to learn and grow.
