Save the date! Our 10th annual Super Saturday event for elementary GT and talent pool students is coming on February 25!
The Super Saturday event is a series of hands on mini-classes which expose the students to topics in a more detailed, hands-on way than they might get at school. Past Super Saturdays have included sessions on weaving, cryptography, static electricity, theatre, yoga, mock trials, government, and so much more!
Look for more information on registering for this popular event in early February! This event is not possible without many adult and high school volunteers. If you are interested in helping us out, please sign up here:

Parent Education Series
Thank you to everyone who joined us in January for the 3rd Parent Education meeting with Susanne Keeley. We had a wonderful turnout to hear Susanne's presentation on "Encourage, Enhance and Expand Executive Functions in your Child." Susanne described potential problems with Executive Functions in gifted students, and specific behaviors and techniques that parents can use to foster Executive Functions skills in their children.
If you registered for this presentation, you should receive an email with a link to the recording. Out of respect for the presenter's wishes, we will not be posting the recording publicly but you may email firstname.lastname@example.org to request access.

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!
