Knox County’s brightest sixth graders were on showcase on Saturday, December 2, during the annual Sixth Grade Showcase.
The Sixth Grade Showcase is an academic event designed to provide a competitive opportunity for Kentucky’s sixth graders, who are sometimes “lost” between elementary (4-5) and middle grades (6-8) Governor’s Cup competition. Much like Governor’s Cup, the competition includes five written assessments-Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Language Arts, and Arts/Humanities, a Quick Recall event, and composition.
Jennifer Carey, the district’s gifted and talented coordinator, leads the event each year. “It is a chance for coaches, administrators, parents and community to see the rewards gained from encouraging academic performance through properly structured and professionally administered academic competition.”
