Mrs. Kathy Graves

Hello and Welcome to Challenge!

I am the Challenge Facilitator here at Eagle Middle School.  I teach 6th, 7th and 8th grade Challenge.  In our district, West Ada, Challenge class is the Gifted and Talented program.  If you are not currently in this program but are interested, please contact me.  I would love to help you out.  If you have previously qualified for this program within the district, you are welcome--and encouraged-- to join us!
 
This is my sixth year in this position, and I am excited about the direction our program is taking.  In addition to our 6th and 7th grade Challenge enrichment curriculum, these classes will also cover grade level ELA curriculum: one period for Literature and one Period for Writing.  8th grade will cover both Challenge enrichment and World Geography. 
 
This year I am fortunate to teach part time so that I can also be mom to my four kids, 12-year-old triplets who attend Victory Middle School and a 14-year-old who attends Mountain View High Schooll!  Because of my part-time schedule, the best way to reach me is email.  I am not usually here before school, but with advance notice would be happy to make myself available if necessary.
