A12GTPG Executive Board
A12GTPGlogo_edited.jpg

 The Adams 12 GT Parents Group is on summer break but we have started planning for the 2024-2025 school year.  Our leadership team will remain largely the same but our amazing President, Viviane Del Pizzo, will be transitioning to the role of Past-President.  Thank you, Viviane, for your leadership over the last two years! 

 

We also want to thank Jill Cables for stepping up to lead the group next year as President.  Please take a moment to fill out our annual feedback survey to confirm our executive board for next year.  If you would like to be more involved with the GT Parents Group, please reach out to us at info@a12gifted.org so we can talk about what role might be right for you!

Helpful Resources

Spring is a time when many parents have received a letter from the school district to let them know that their student has been identified as GT or Gifted and Talented.  The world of gifted education can be confusing at first.  If you are new to the GT world, here are some resources from out site that are a good place to start. 

- Two short videos that provide a great introduction to GT

- Video presentation on ALPs.  This is from 2020 but provides a good intro. Check out other information from our Parent Education Series.

- Reading: A Parents Guide to Gifted Children and The Survival Guide for Parents of Gifted Kids are great places to start.  

-Prefer to watch rather than read? Check out these 45-60 min conversations from a variety of gifted experts

We hope everyone is enjoying their summer break!  Our regular calendar of events will resume in the fall but in the meantime we'd love to heard your feedback. 

 

The Adams 12 GT Parents Group is made up of parent volunteers and we are here to serve the Adams 12 GT community.  Is there an event you would like to see next year or are you looking for a way to get more involved?  Use our annual feedback survey to let us know your thoughts. We are always looking for new or familiar faces to join us as a board member, school liaison, or a member of our leadership team!  If you have ideas, the time to share them is NOW so we can hit the ground running in the fall.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Build Community
Support GT programs in your school!

 

The school district and the A12GTPG will continue to build the "school liaison" program to strengthen communication to families and to build our GT community.  Each liaison has the opportunity to join meetings during the school year where district staff, the A12GTPG and other Liaisons gather to discuss how to best bring resources to our schools, GT students and their families. Help us move forward GT programming in your school!​
