Dear CCSD GT Community,
Per Dr. Siegfried’s message to the CCSD community dated, April 27, 2020, all CCSD facilities will remain closed through June 30, 2020; additionally, the same correspondence states that all activities which use our facilities will also be canceled through June 30, 2020. Therefore, the 2020 session of Inside Out will be canceled. We realize this will be another missed opportunity for our students during this unprecedented time. However, we wanted to communicate this cancelation quickly, so if you choose, there will be ample time to investigate other enrichment opportunities for your child. We hope to provide a full enrichment offering of Inside Out at the end of the 2021 school year.
Rebecca López, Director of Gifted & Talented Services
The Inside Out Enrichment Program is sponsored by the Office of Gifted and Talented Services and offers a learning environment that fosters critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and effective communication skills.
Inside Out is dedicated to providing open-ended student-centered opportunities for children that focus on:
*self-reflecting on how tasks impact learning/perception of self as a learner
*engaging in activities aligned with individual strengths, preferences, and/or interests
*fostering connections between activities and potential career fields, leadership opportunities, or real-world applications
*exploring advanced content in that field
*acquiring the skills, methodologies, and dispositions of the practicing professionals in that field
*investigating real-world problems and developing authentic products and services in that field
*Depth of Knowledge
*Depth & Complexity
Inside Out offers classes with options for half-day or full-day for one, two or three weeks during June 2020.
2019-2020 Inside Out dates: June 1-5, June 8-12, and June 15-19
Location: Falcon Creek Middle School
Morning Class Hours (AM): 8:15am-11:15am
Supervised Lunch & Mid-Day Exercise: 11:15am-12:30pm (offered only to students attending both an AM and PM session in the same week)
Afternoon Class Hours (PM): 12:30pm-3:30pm
Transportation is being offered. Pick up and drop off locations will be at the child’s home-feeder middle school. For example: If your child attends Challenge Magnet School, but their home school is Indian Ridge Elementary, their home-feeder middle school would be Laredo Middle School. Parents still have the option to provide their own transportation to and from where Inside Out will be taking place. Please note that 1st through 9th graders will be riding on the same bus.
If you need help determining your home-feeder middle school, please use the district map for asistance.
