We are committed to making this program the best experience possible for your child. To achieve this, we have pulled together a very strong group of teachers and parents. This year, we have an incredible group of adults leading the way.
Scott Stillman and Adam Barnett will again be leading our experiences. Scott
just finished his 1st year as a gifted and talented coordinator at Glen Lake Elementary. This is Scott's 18th
