WAUSAU SCHOOL DISTRICT GIFTED & TALENTED STUDENT NOMINATION PROCESS
Nominations are now being accepted from parents and teachers of second through fifth grade students in need of gifted and talented evaluations. Parents and teachers are welcome to nominate students who are currently achieving at a high level in mathematics and/or reading, approximately at the top 5% of the class. Please note, students cannot be tested in consecutive years. Teachers have already nominated some students for these
evaluations. If you have already completed a Permission to Evaluate for Gifted and Talented Identification Form, no further steps need to be taken. Students who are already identified as gifted and talented do not need to be re-evaluated.
Parents whose second through fifth grade child has not been previously nominated as gifted and talented and who feel that they have a high achieving child may pick up a Permission to Evaluate for Gifted and Talented Identification Form with the Parent Inventory Form on the back from the school office. Nominations from parents are due by January 13, 2023.
When the completed parent forms are returned to the school office, each student will be scheduled for several assessments. These will be done sometime during the school day. These assessments, along with other test data, will provide the district with a student profile. This profile will help determine whether or not a child meets the District’s guidelines for gifted and talented identification. The assessment review is expected to be completed in May and the results will be shared before the end of the school year.
The Wausau School District recognizes that appropriate instructional challenge is needed for all students regardless of ability. The GT identification process is one way to help us provide for the educational needs of high ability students. Should you need further information, please contact your building’s GT Learning Resource Teacher or Tammy Steckbauer, Coordinator for Gifted and Talented, at 715-261-0220.
News from the PTO
We hope you are staying safe and warm today!
We know it's hard to think about 2023...but we will be making popcorn on Wednesday, January 4. Sign up if you are available to help!
We make popcorn for EVERY student. To distribute the popcorn to classrooms, we use reusable shopping bags. Many of our bags are showing their age and we are looking for donations of bags that are large enough to fit ~25 popcorn bags in them.
The dimensions of the bags above are:
If you have bags that are approximately this size that you would like to donate, we would be happy to have them! Just send them to school with a note saying they are for the PTO!
We Wish you a happy, healthy holiday and all good things in 2023!
Margy and April
