State Definition of AIG Students
Academically or intellectually gifted (AIG) students perform or show the potential to perform at substantially high levels of accomplishment when compared with others of their age, experiences or environment. Academically or intellectually gifted students exhibit high performance capability in intellectual areas, specific academic fields, or in both the intellectual areas and specific academic fields. Academically or intellectually gifted students require differentiated educational services beyond those ordinarily provided by the regular educational program. Outstanding abilities are present in students from all cultural groups, across all economic strata, and in all areas of human endeavor.
AIG students are served through pull-out and inclusion in the regular education classroom. They are provided with differentiated instruction. Our AIG facilitator, Peggy Wendling, also pulls these student for enrichment activities.
Students and parents in the AIG, nurture, and AIMS group had the opportunity to meet others in the district when they all met to go see the Mudcats game.
Students and parents in the AIG, nurture, and AIMS groups participated in a spring cleaning here at Benvenue on March 25. They cleaned the school grounds and the garden area. Through this activity, students, parents, and the community were able to come together to help the environment, beautify our school grounds, have fun, and learn about plants.
