ELEMENTARY GIFTED SERVICES
Elementary School Gifted Services are designed to provide educational experiences that support and extend the regular curriculum. These services provide complex tasks and challenges through planned learning experiences that reflect the Dimensions of Learning model. All elementary gifted students are pulled out of the regular classroom one day a week and attend a gifted support class in the middle school. Students work in small groups with their intellectual peers on a theme or topic that is being taught. The students’ individual skills and habits are embedded into these themes or topics. Students work individually on critical thinking skills, logic and reasoning skills, math extensions and as a group on a lesson. For additional information call Mrs. Crutchman at 724-437-2865 or visit her website at LHSD.org.
MIDDLE SCHOOL GIFTED SERVICES
The Middle School 6th, 7th and 8th grade Gifted Services are designed to offer a continuum of services to meet the diverse needs of gifted students. A variety of service delivery options are available for students within the Middle School Gifted Program dependent upon students’ individual needs and interests. Students can participate in a pull out class designed with planned learning experiences. Students may also receive consultative services through a push-in model with the Gifted Support Teacher who will monitor progress and adjustment at the middle school level. These consultative services will be offered weekly and as necessary throughout the academic year. For additional information call Mrs. Crutchman at 724-437-2865 or visit LHSD.org.
