Sumter School District's REACH program for artistically gifted and talented students offers students in grades 3-11 opportunities to develop and enhance their talents in the areas of visual arts, theater and choral music through three Saturday workshops held in March, April and May and a three-week intensive workshop in June. Students must be screened and meet criteria before qualifying for participation in this program. Students meeting qualifications to participate in the program within the past two years do not need to be referred or screened unless interested in participating in a different arts area than originally qualified for. Previous students are required, however, to submit the Request for Screening Form to inform program leaders if they intend to participate in the program in 2019. Schools will be accepting requests for screenings Nov. 5-30. Request for Screening Forms are being sent home with report cards on Oct. 31. Forms are also available at all schools and on the district's website. Initial screenings will be conducted at the school level through Dec. 7. For more information, contact Heather Clemmons at (803) 774-5500, extension 122, or heather.clemmons@sumterschools.net.
