Welcome to the MacArthur TAG blog. Please use the tabs to find information about the TAG program, referral process and important dates, and class information for Mrs. Dugan’s and Miss Nicholson’s classes.
Mrs. Dugan teaches 4th grade language arts, 4th grade math, and 5th grade language arts, and works with GIA students.
Miss Nicholson teaches 5th grade language arts and 5th grade math, and works with MacArthur’s Young Scholars.
Mrs. Moore, our school’s Instructional Coach, serves as the TAG Designee (handles referrals and screening).

Each 4th -5th grade TAG Math or LA class meets daily with a TAG teacher.  GIA students in K-5 receive primary services from their classroom teacher through a Differentiated Education Plan (DEP). Mrs. Dugan works with homeroom teachers and with GIA students in K-5th grade to extend and enrich their learning.

Miss Nicholson delivers screening lessons to identify new Young Scholars, and works with currently-identified students on a weekly basis.
