Welcome Letter!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to a new and exciting school year!  I am delighted to have your student in QUEST and look forward to sharing this school year together.  As the Gifted Resource Teacher,  it is my endeavor to create an educational partnership with you and your student that will foster courage, determination, and passion for knowledge.  In addition to this, my commitment as an educator will be to provide your student with a nurturing and challenging educational environment that will ensure their academic success with the Virginia Standards of Learning.

Students are expected to actively participate in class and complete assignments to the best of their ability, while abiding by school rules at all times. Students and parents may access the Gifted Blog at http://blogs.spsk12.net/spsgifted/  for information on upcoming events, both local and regional, as well as forms and applications for various programs.  

Again, I  look forward to teaching your student and working with you to help your student achieve his/her fullest potential. Please do not hesitate to contact me, if you need additional assistance.
