Dear 3rd, 4th, and 5th-grade GATE Parents,

We are proud to announce that our campus will participate in an ELA competition called WordMasters this academic year. All GT students attending 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades are eligible to participate. Over the course of the competition, students will develop verbal reasoning abilities, higher-order thinking skills, and improve logic and reading comprehension. All the challenges are done online (at our campus) so there is no travel involved. This competition is free of charge as all the cost is paid by our campus. There are three challenges that will take place between the  following windows:

Challenge Meet #1 Tests Administered    11/12/18 – 11/30/18

Challenge Meet #2 Tests Administered   2/4/19 – 2/22/19

Challenge Meet #3 Tests Administered    4/8/19 – 4/26/19

Cumulative Champions Announced          5/10/19
