Early Morning Enrichment at Aiken

In the fall of 2004, a new before-school club was made available at Aiken Elementary School for students identified as Talented and Gifted (TAG). "Early Morning Enrichment" sessions take place every Friday morning from 8:15 - 8:45 a.m. in the library.

In late October, these TAG students organized and conducted an all-school mock presidential election, and in December begin working on a school newspaper as a part of this early morning program that focuses on activities that promote higher level thinking skills. The first edition featured spotlights on a couple of teachers as well as a news story on Aiken's geography bee winner, 4th grader Reilly Collins.

In preparing to create their own newspaper, students engaged in several activities centered around the local newspaper, The Argus Observer.
