Pick up and drop off

 It has always been the school policy that the front loop of the school is designated for busses only and is not to be used for drop off or pick up.  After Thanksgiving break we will be more stringent with our enforcement of this policy.  Before school and after school we will have the front entrance blocked off to all traffic except busses.  Please utilize our east and west parking lots for student drop off and pick up.  If you need to enter the building you will need to park in the east or west lot.  We would also like to remind you that students and adults should only cross the street at our designated cross walks.  We have a particular concern about students crossing the street from the south side of 1st avenue, which is  prohibited.  Please be patient and use an abundance of caution during these times to ensure all of our students are safe. Thank you!

Gifted and Talented Education

Hello VPE Parents,

We are opening up nominations for academic Gifted and Talented identification of students Nov.11-Dec.1st. If you are noticing that your child is showing traits of a gifted learner contact your child’s teacher. Below is a support to help differentiate between a high-achieving student and gifted learner. Thank you for your support and if you have questions please contact Shanna O’Dell or Serena Taylor. 

Areas of Giftedness:

  • General or specific intellectual ability
  • Specific academic aptitude
  • Creative or productive thinking
  • Leadership abilities
  • Talent: Visual arts, performing arts, musical or psychomotor abilities (Please contact explore teachers if you would like to nominate in a talent area)

Generally, a high-achieving student is one who works hard to succeed; is attentive in class; learns with ease; memorizes facts; correctly answers questions, and earns good grades. In comparison, a student who might be considered gifted in a particular content area is performing at an outstanding level of accomplishment compared to grade level peers; generates complex, abstract ideas; comprehends complex ideas; infers and connects concepts; is self-directed in learning; and can answer content-related questions but also asks complex questions (Kingore, 2014). Please go to the Aurora Public School Gifted and Talented website for more information on Gifted and Talented students.
