PALS students meet twice a week with Donna Burns, the Lake Wales Charter Schools system teacher for gifted and talented students. Initially, about 32 students in grades 3-5 will be involved in PALS.


The first PALS project will be a “Wax Museum.” Students will research characters, and use art, drama and public speaking to present museum characters to an audience.


“We are very excited about providing top students with this opportunity,” said Principal Gail Quam.
