Welcome to Haymarket Gifted Education! 


Office Hours: 

***Available through email: silvisvl@pwcs.edu***

I will be emailing a weekly newsletter to families with optional extension activities. Check out the Gifted Resource Education Choice Activities here on padlet. If you complete an activity, take a picture or scan it and email me at silvisvl@pwcs.edu. I would love to see your work!

Third Grade Students:  I will be adding weekly activities to our TEAMS page in Office 365. We used this earlier in the year to complete our Map Scavenger Hunt. You can log in to teams through Office 365. https://office.com/login  (school login with @pwcs-edu.org). Google Chrome seems to be the best browser to access Office 365 from home. 

Use this link for more information about using Office 365 for students: Office 365 in PWCS

Please email me at silvisvl@pwcs.edu if you need help! 


Thank you,
Mrs. Silvis


Strategies for Teaching and Reaching for Talents

The START program offers gifted education services for identified students in kindergarten through third grade.  Students are identified based on specific academic aptitude in the areas of language and/or mathematics.  The START goals are to challenge students to develop their skills in thinking critically, creatively, and reflectively.  Students are offered a variety of educational opportunities that extend and enrich the curriculum and support the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOLs).
