Present levels of Performance [PLP]:
Katys strengths are her problem solving skills and creativity. She
scored a 96/100 on a recent presentation of local Native American
Pueblos. Katy went above the requirements for the project and created
a website with tourist information. In class, Katy supports her peers
and works cooperatively with them. Katys teacher notes that she
does well in classroom debates, and classroom discussions adding
informative and thoughtful responses. Katy is preparing for the Mock
Trials in December and is planning on being the key witness for the
case. Her teachers also stated that Katy has done especially well in
orchestra, making first chair in Violin.
Katys parents note that she is self-driven, determined and are really
impressed with Katys transition to middle school. They have had to
minimally check in with Katy, as she has been very responsible for
completing all assignments and homework. Katys science teacher
reports that she has especially done well in his class and has delved
right into the content with enthusiasm and has used her critical
thinking skills. Katy has expressed to the Science teacher of
eventually becoming neuroscientist and would like to learn more about
social interaction and how the brain works.
