    As we adjust to this new distance learning environment, the AG department recommends a collection of resources and activities that are appropriate for advanced learners looking for additional challenge and intellectual stimulation. These resources have been curated with the gifted student in mind and can be used for daily enrichment and as ideas for summer engagement.
