Initial Gifted Resource Letter for Parents
Welcome to Gifted Education in Jasper County/Washington Park Elementary. I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with your child next year.
Gifted And Talented students and those with high abilities need gifted education programs that will challenge them not only in the regular classroom setting but also enrichment programs that enable them to experience broader topics and deeper content .
Here are some of the services we offer to gifted learners at Washington Park Elementary
Gifted Certified HomeroomTeachers: All gifted students at WPE have the opportunity to be placed in classrooms taught by gifted certified teachers. These teachers have training that will enable them to enhance and differentiate curriculum in order to strengthen learning for gifted students.Please note, according to the continuation policy set forth by Jasper County Schools, students must maintain an 85% average in all classes to remain eligibility for gifted services (see continuation policy attached)
Gifted Resource: All gifted students will receive additional learning opportunities through gifted resource classes taught by Mrs.Gerber. One day a week students will come to a gifted resource and engage in Units of Study and various learning activities that focus on critical thinking, problem solving, math enhancement, collaboration etc.. There will also be times where we will extend our learning through field trips or special projects. Students will receive a gifted resource Progress Report Card at the end of each semester.
Communication: I will communicate through Class Dojo. ( I will add your student to the Gifted Class Dojo Page. Please make sure you check this regularly. There is a special Video presentation I just placed on dojo in regards to an upcoming project for next year. There is also a QR Code attached to this letter. .Please take a few minutes to listen to the entire presentation.
