An enrichment program for our High Ability Learners(H.A.L.) has been taking place at the Lakeview Grade Schools. Students in grades 5&6 who meet the criteria are invited to the after-school sessions in Math and Science. This is an exciting opportunity to challenge students in these core areas. Mrs. Wurtz is teaching the Math sessions and Mrs. Polanco is teaching Science. The sessions engage the students in higher levels of thinking outside the regular classroom curriculum.
