Tuesday was a fun day of challenging activities and learning for students at K.I. Jones Elementary School.
About 285 students participated in the first of two days of the GATE Olympics, which challenged them mentally and physically to work together to meet the goals of the program.
GATE stands for Gifted and Talented Education.“Sometimes kids who are gifted have a difficult time working in a team,” said Principal Michelle LaBelle-Fisch. “This program is to help them learn to work together.”
