Announcements – 3/7/16

I will be going on maternity leave some time within the next couple of weeks. When that happens, there will be no more weekly email announcements. Please make sure to check the school website to stay updated! There will be a sub counselor available for the remainder of the year, and a full-time counselor available next year, as I’ll be taking a 1-year leave of absence. Please continue to email me as needed through this address–once I’m on leave, I’ll set up an automatic response so you know who to contact in my place.

 

Builders Club is hosting a canned food drive for Shepard’s Supply thru March 18. Please bring all cans to Mrs. Howell’s room.

 

Gifted Education Information

Gifted students are those who perform at, or who have demonstrated the potential to perform at, high levels in academic or creative fields when compared to others of their age, experience, or environment. These students require services not ordinarily provided by the regular school program. Students possessing these abilities can be found in all populations, across all economic strata, and in all areas of human endeavor.

 

Teachers, counselors, administrators, parents or guardians, peers, self, or any other individuals with knowledge of the student’s abilities may refer a student. Additionally, all second grade students will be observed as potential gifted referrals using a gifted behavior checklist. For each student referred, information is gathered in the areas of Aptitude, Characteristics, and Performance. The information is entered on a matrix where points are assigned according to established criteria. The total number of points earned determines if the student qualifies for gifted services.

 

To make a referral, contact the gifted specialist at your child’s school.
