It is so exciting to me that after many years, we are going to have a parent organization that aims to help provide more enrichment opportunities for students! There are so many children who are interested in stretching their knowledge and creativity and they need the opportunities to do so! I'm looking forward to hearing your ideas as we move through this new adventure together!
At the meeting on August 23, I mentioned the GAM conference in Columbia. I received an email confirming that Dr. Sylvia Rimm is indeed speaking on Sunday, October 23. My inquiry into a group rate for parents who wish to attend is being considered and I'll let you know when I'm informed of their decision. Dr. Rimm is one of, if not THE, national expert on underachieving gifted students. I think she offers excellent advice on parenting gifted children.
I am checking dates for our next meeting and will let you know as soon as I have a date approved!
