Step Ahead is a Summer program for children entering Kindergarten this fall. If you are new to Laramie or missed the kindergarten enrollment period, it’s not too late!
The objective of Step Ahead is to help your child transition smoothly into the public school setting in the fall by teaching entry level Kindergarten skills. Targeted goals for students are to identify and write the letters in their first name; count and group objects up to 15; follow 3- step directions; and increase attention to learning tasks. These skills are consistent with best practices used in our school district.
The Step Ahead/Title 1 summer program will take place at Spring Creek Elementary, 1203 Russell;
July 20th through August 6th (Monday-Thursday).
Transportation, if necessary, will be provided by the school district to Spring Creek and back home. The hours for the program are 8:30-12:00. A morning snack and lunch will be provided.
If you would like to enroll, please leave a message at Spring Creek Elementary (307)721-4410 or email Jerri Rauer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Forms need to be delivered to Spring Creek Elementary in person or email them to email@example.com
Attention: New students to ACSD #1 Grades 3 – 5
2015 – 2016
Spring Creek Elementary is the site for the Albany County School District #1 Gifted and Talented magnet program. These classes serve highly academic/creative students by providing differentiated instruction and an opportunity to interact with ability level peers. There are 3 classes (grades 3 – 5) located at Spring Creek Elementary. A teacher within the GATE Program provides the students full time, daily instruction. In addition, these magnet classrooms have regularly scheduled Art, P.E., Computer, Music, Library, and Guidance classes.
Students are selected based on indicators of success in the program using specific GATE testing criteria. A combination of verbal and non-verbal assessments have been chosen to best identify highly qualified students through a non-biased, holistic manner. If deemed appropriate once testing is completed, recommendations for admittance into the GATE Program will be made by the GATE Committee. Equal access is provided to culturally diverse students, students of different economic levels, and students with special needs.
For more information about our program or to submit a referral, please contact Liann Brenneman at (307)721-4410 or firstname.lastname@example.org
