Corrigan ISD Hosts Gifted and Talented Student Night, CORRIGAN, May 17, 2023 - Corrigan-Camden Elementary is building upon their success, after growing into an A Rated Campus this year. On Tuesday night, the Gifted and Talented students in grades Kindergarten through Fifth Grade showcased their talents for family, staff and community members to see.
Ms. Paula Martin, principal, said, “This night is meant to build our Gifted and Talented program and to demonstrate the growth and strengths of our students.” Students used various technology programs to complete projects using Videography, QR Coding and Graphic Design programs.
The G.T. students completed research projects over South African animals, biomes, and the history of Nobel Peace Prize winner Nelson Mandela. Students also explored entrepreneurship by creating business plans and products. As seen below, we had projects from healing medical devices to a purrfect cat cafe.
As most school years in Polk County are coming to an end, Corrigan Camden Elementary was thrilled to be able to celebrate the accomplishments and successes of their Gifted and Talented students. Fifth Grade student Luke Wood said it best, “Officially, the best G.T. night ever!”
