Super Saturday Is Back for Our Ninth Event!
For Elementary Students & Parents
Saturday, February 26, 2022
We are excited to announce that we will once again host Super Saturday, our signature event for elementary students. Super Saturday is a day-long series of interactive sessions that provide K-5 GT and talent pool students the chance to delve into topics they likely have not encountered at school.
Due to COVID protocols and in an effort to respond to parent feedback, the format is slightly different than previous years, so please review the event schedule for options. This year's event will:
Include approximately 175 GT and talent pool students from kindergarten to 5th grade
Offer 12 different student speakers divided between 10 student tracks each with 3 45-minute student sessions
Offer 4 parent speakers on topics of interest to GT families
Provide AM and PM options, offering more flexibility for our busy GT families.
Who Can Attend: Student sessions are available for students in grades K-5. Parent sessions are open to ALL parents with GT or talent pool students of any age, and parents are encouraged to attend with or without students.
Sessions: The schedule below shows the combination of three classes which make up each track. Each session is hosted by a professional from the community who loves their work and wants to share their passions with our students. This year, families have an option to choose either the AM schedule from 8:30 to 11:45 or the PM option from 12:30 to 3:45. For both AM and PM, there is one track available for K/1 students, with two tracks each for students in grades 2/3 and 4/5.
Check here for class details and registration.
Cost: Students should only be registered for ONE track in either AM OR PM and will attend each of the 3 sessions listed for that track. The cost for this event is $10 per student. Parents and other adults attend for FREE! Your donation of $10 per student helps the volunteer-run Adams 12 GT Parents Group provide your family with this full-day experience and also helps to fund other GT speakers and events throughout the year.
