TAG (Talented and Gifted Program) – Info Session on Oct. 15

October 15 | 6:30 – 7:30 PM | Chapman Library (Room 17)

Principal Van Der Wolf and TAG Coordinator Rochella Farnand will be hosting a TAG Information Meeting in the Library on Tuesday, October 15th at 6:30 pm. At this meeting parents can learn about the TAG identification process and in-school implementation.

All Second graders will be tested this fall for TAG identification for intellectual ability. Additionally, all parents can nominate their child for age level TAG testing in math or reading. Students that took the SBAC last spring will receive a post card from the TAG office if they scored 95th percentile or higher. Post cards will be sent mid-October. This score is used to help with the identification process.  

Nomination forms are available on the TAG information Board next to the office. Forms are also available on line at the PPS TAG website. The deadline for nominations is November 26th and late or incomplete applications will not be accepted. Please give completed forms to your child’s teacher.

For those already identified, families should have received any email from the TAG  office with a parent survey. If you are unable to print it, please stop by the office for a hard copy.   Completed forms should be returned to your child’s teacher as soon as possible to help with planning.

Upcoming events are posted on the TAG information board. One event posted is on October 26th and is sponsored by Oregon Association for Talented and Gifted. It  will focus on Neurodiversity. The other is the first of four sessions at the BESC on October 15 at 6:30. The session is called Multipotentiality and your Child.

If you have any TAG questions, feel free to email Rochella Farnand. You may also find additional information on the PPS TAG website at https://www.pps.net/tag.
