We wanted to share some exciting sessions being offered for parents during the WCPSS Parent Academies sponsored by our AIG Program.

Social and Emotional Needs of Gifted Children (While individual differences (and exceptions to the rule) abound, there are strong tendencies among gifted students regarding their social and emotional development that can inform parents and teachers, to help them understand their children and students.  Awareness of these characteristics can turn the "rough seas" of interactions in school and in the home into "smooth sailing" for everyone involved.)

Welcome to Baucom Elementary School!

Baucom provides a nurturing environment where learning is meaningful and challenging, and students' minds are actively engaged. 

Baucom Elementary Mission: To inspire students to confidently walk the road to success with a love of learning and the ability to adapt, think, collaborate, and problem solve. 

Baucom Elementary Vision: When you walk the halls of Baucom Elementary School, you will see teachers with a caring attitude, providing students with a basic learning foundation as well as challenges to help them meet their fullest potential.  Our teachers foster curiosity and provide enriching experiences in a safe and caring environment to promote life-long learning.  They participate in Professional Learning Teams as they work together to analyze data from on-going assessments and monitor student progress to plan for instruction.  This assures alignment with state and county curriculum as well as school goals.  We utilize our community partnerships and available technology to promote 21st century learning, all while maintaining a family friendly environment.  Baucom students also learn to be respectful, caring people through many outreach and character education programs throughout the year, as we learn to care for others as much as we care for ourselves.
