This Blog Has Moved

Hello, faithful readers!  (You do exist, right?)  I have changed my blog address (goodbye,!) to reflect the fact that ACE does not begin until 3rd grade.  Kindergarten, first, and second grade students can receive enrichment services while at Mount Daniel or Thomas Jefferson, but these services are not part of the ACE program.  Enrichment services are fluid by design.  Formal gifted identifications are not made until the end of a student’s second grade year.  Once these identifications are in place, elementary school gifted services are then provided to third, fourth, and fifth graders as part of the ACE program.  If you would like more information about the ACE program, check out Ms. Lang’s blog at
