Dear Parents, Guardians, and incredible BETA Minischool students,
It is hard to believe that two years have come and gone and unfortunately our time as the teachers in Minischool is coming to a close. With summer approaching so quickly, we are all awaiting time in the sun to rest, relax, and adjust to change. The students have earned a well-deserved break and we hope that they have the chance to find new interests, hobbies, passions, and interests in their experiences over the summer.
Looking back on the past two years, we have faced many challenges in adjusting to daily life of teaching advanced learners, but not a day has gone by that we have not grown more as teachers and mentors. Each day, there are students who share their passion with us, and their gifts enrich our lives. We are very thankful for every moment and opportunity we have had in this program.
Finally, we would like to thank all the parents and guardians who have made this program the success it grew to be over the past two years. With your support chaperoning field trips, delivering workshops in the classroom in various specializations, and offering a sounding block to our experiences, we were able to focus our energy to learning. From donating foods and materials, to constant support, love, and encouragement for your children, this program grew to support our students in remarkable ways. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for helping us reach out to the brilliant minds of these students. Because of your help in this program, we were able to give them an opportunity to be challenged while finding purpose and passion in their unique abilities.
Though we are moving on to new positions in the District, please know that you can still reach out to us for any questions or updates. We would love to hear where our students end up in the future and where their curiosities have guided them. We wish our students the best of luck pursuing their dreams!
What makes a child gifted and talented may not always be good grades in school, but a different way of looking at the world and learning. ~Chuck Grassley
