Elsa's meeting went well. Her teacher is very exuberant which is good for third grade, I suppose. She said Elsa is doing very well and she is super sweet and always respectful. I also really liked Paige's teacher. Now, I mentioned before that Paige was being tested for the gifted program and they recently finished the testing so we went over the results. She did extremely well in language arts, but only average to high in math and science. Her overall ranking was a 90 and she needed to score a 97 to be placed in the program. Rankings were against her age group across the country. Her teacher was really disappointed that she didn't make it but he explained that it is really the areas that the tests don't take into account where Paige excels like Music and Art. He said that her artistic ability as well as her writing skills were some of the highest he's seen in a long time. He encouraged us to explore activities in the surrounding community that would help enhance and nurture her abilities. Needless to say, I got a little teary-eyed. It is so nice to hear someone else brag on your child.
