2023-2024 Welcome Letter for Parents of FUSION students


    FUSION is for 4th and 5th grade students that have been identified as gifted through the LCPS evaluation process.  FUSION students spend two hours per week with me in a pull-out group, and I visit them for an additional hour each (weekly) for Language Arts and Math in their classrooms.

    This year, the theme for FUSION is "Leadership".   In addition to critical thinking / problem solving and differentiated Math / Language Arts tasks, we will learn about different types of leaders, common characteristics of leaders and people who display leadership qualities.  Students will explore their own characteristics and explore what kind of leader they could be, and what leadership characteristics they already possess.  

    DCI students have also been identified as gifted for either Math or Language Arts.    These students are provided enrichment services when I come into their classrooms.
