Katy Gifted Students Get Creative with Trash

Hundreds of gifted and talented elementary students enjoyed getting together at the Katy Parents of Gifted & Talented (KPGT) GT Create Date to make puppets out of recyclable materials. Students and parents let their imaginations loose as they turned trash to treasure at this fun event co-sponsored by KPGT and KISD. Led by professional puppeteer Greg Ruhe from Puppet Pizzazz and professional artist Taylor Perry, the children enjoyed an inspiring and hilarious puppet show before launching into their own creations.

“It was sometimes difficult to tell who was having more fun – the children, the parents or the presenters,” says Amy Schemidt, KPGT co-president. “Gifted students thrive when presented with stimulating challenges and KPGT was delighted that KISD supported this event.”
