Talent development

Dear Parent/Guardian,

This fall your child will be participating in specialized differentiation designed for academic content enrichment in an Advanced Learning Program called Talent Development.  Your child will join me bi-weekly for Talent Development in the area(s) of Math, Language Arts, Creativity, and Critical Thinking.

Talent Development is designed to extend grade level standards and provide challenging experiences in creativity and critical thinking for participating students. It is not to be confused with gifted or other special student services/programs.

If you have questions, please contact me.  I look forward to working with your student.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Susan Thompson Ed.S, NBCT
