Southampton County Public Schools
2017 - 2018
WELCOME TO A GREAT YEAR OF LEARNING!
Southampton County’s program for identified gifted students in grades 3 – 5 is called the Discover Center. Students attend Riverdale Elementary School for a full day of instruction each week. Discover Center students from Capron, Meherrin, and Nottoway will ride a separate bus from their home school to Riverdale. Students will return home in the same manner, riding a bus from Riverdale to their home school.
This year, Discover Center classes will begin the week of October 2, 2017, in room 320 at Riverdale Elementary School (757 – 562 – 3007). A class schedule with a supply list is attached for your information.
Orientation Session for Students and Parents
An orientation session for all students that will be attending the Discover Center program this year will be held on Monday, September 18, 2017 at 5:30 pm in the Riverdale Elementary School cafeteria. I am looking forward to meeting students and parents to discuss our plans for the new school year.
Students will participate in the Word Masters vocabulary program to enhance and expand their vocabulary skills. They will learn algebraic math with Hands-On Equations. Students will also explore a wide variety of topics in our unit studies, learn new computer skills, and exercise our brains through reasoning skills and logic activities.
If you have any questions or concerns at any time, please feel free to contact me at Riverdale Elementary School (757 – 562 – 3007) or email me firstname.lastname@example.org. I am so excited to be working with your children this year!
