Mosaic accepting new applicants through May 3
Mosaic, Eden Prairie Schools’ new full-day gifted-and-talented program, is accepting a second round of student applications.
The first round of applications is completed and families have been notified of their child’s acceptance into the program. Space is still available in the program, so additional applications will be accepted for both resident and nonresident students who meet the eligibility criteria.
The program will open at the start of the 2013-14 school year at Forest Hills and Prairie View elementary schools for students in grades 4 and 5. Over the next two years, the program will expand to include students in grades 2-6.
Second-round applications are being accepted through Friday, May 3. The district will review applications and determine the need for further individual student assessment on May 14-15. Parents will be notified May 24-28.
The application can be found on the district website at www.edenpr.org. Contact Sue Feigal Hitch with questions at 952-975-8642 or SFei galHitch@edenpr.org.
