We have Merit class - they're maybe smarter than the average bears...the
art work is usually pretty good - a bit better than the other in the
same grade but one of the kids said it was his bithday- he was 10! in
the third grade - my son is 10 and in 5th grade/ I'm sure he'd be a lot
smarter in 3rd! This kids was gifted in that his bright parents knew it
would be to his advantage to start school older. This is a trend for
athletics too...Oh well We had open house and I told them the good news
was ALL children are gifted in art ! I belive that so did Picasso
apparently. Seeya
