GT Parent Social Hour
Helping Hand Icon

In response to feedback from our parents asking for more community building, we are adding a series of informal meet-ups for parents of GT students.  The social hours will be held about once a month and will alternate between evening Zoom meetings and in-person weekday meetings in an effort to accommodate varying schedules.

 

These meet ups are open to any parent or caregiver of a GT or talent pool student.  If you have questions, concerns, or just want to talk with other parents who might have similar experiences, this is the place for you!  Please bring your stories and your questions and join us.  RSVP to the next meeting using the links below to let us know you are coming!

Oct. 5, 7pm - Zoom Social Hour

Nov. 4, 9am - In-person Coffee Chat

New to GT?
Do you have a newly-identified GT student?

 

We know parents who are new to the world of GT often have many questions about what GT identification will mean for their child.  If you are unsure where to start, check out these short videos for parents of newly-identified GT students and look over the other resources available on our page.  If you have other questions, we are here to help!  Just send us an email at info@a12gifted.org.  Welcome!

Stay Connected
We need you!

 

Did you know that all of our parent education meetings, Super Saturday's, MS activities, and field trips are planned and coordinated by parents like you? In order to continue providing these programs for you and your children, we need your help! Please become involved in your child's education by volunteering to help with an Adams 12 GT Parents Group event or by attending one of our monthly Leadership meetings to learn about GT resources and updates and plan events for Adams 12 GT families.  This is a great way to become more involved, to connect with other GT parents, and to support our community.  Please contact us with your questions at info@a12gifted.org

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!​
