CHIPs stands for Children with High Intellectual Potential. Students in the CHIPs program have been identified as gifted. The gifted program is a "pull-out" program which means that they leave their classroom and get to come have fun with Mrs. Radnitzer (who is extending their learning in exciting ways:) for 90 minutes per week. We meet on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, right after lunch. Oh, and sometimes we actually have to do some work too!

We have written a little bit about our daily lives as we prepare to create our digital stories. Mrs. Radnitzer is going to post a couple of our pieces of writing. Let us know what you think.

A Bad Day by John
Around 7:15 I get up and hop in the shower. By 7:45 I am dressed and ready for breakfast. It's usually 8:00 when I pour the milk into my cereal. Now it's 9:00... Wait! What! I'm late! I'm late! I hop in the car and I get a tardy slip by 9:05. The morning is fine - just my usual - until I notice I forgot my backpack! I have no home work to turn in and no food. By the end of the day I have a yellow slip and I am starving. It's 3:30. My Mom comes to pick me up when she say...RING RING RING! What was that!? It was my alarm clock. It was all a DREAM!
