•  2021-2022 5th Grade Quest 

    Hi students! Hi parents! Mr. Jones here! I want to take the opportunity to welcome you to 5th grade Quest at Pearl Upper. I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to be a part of your child's learning experience and help them reach their educational goals. I hope to make this school year one of your child's most memorable ones.  

    FYI:Did you know that the Gifted Education Program in Mississippi defines intellectually gifted children as those children and youth who are found to have an exceptional high degree of intelligence as documented through the identification process? Gifted learners, which includes your child,  think differently!

     The Gifted Education Program's goal is designed to help students undestand what being gifted means. I want students to take what is being taught to them  and apply it to their everyday lives while supporting them of course. With this being said, the program meets the indivudal needs of gifted children. Instruction is personalized and differentiated based on student interests. At the begining of each year, student interest surverys are conducted that assists with this. 

    The information is used to design units and to explore the interests of students throughout the school year. As the school year progresses, you can periodically check my website for current updated photos of challenges, units, lessons,  and activities that we are completing in class!  I'm looking forward to another great year.
