"PARENT CHAT"

Top 10 Facts Every Parent Should Know About Their Gifted Child

Wednesday, May 9th
8:15 a.m.
Room TBD

Did you ever wish your gifted child came with a manual? Do you wonder why your gifted child has over-excitabilities? Would you like to learn how to support your gifted child academically, socially and emotionally? Please join us on Wednesday, May 9th at 8:15 A.M. to hear Dr. Denise Spirou , gifted specialist, share with you the unique needs of gifted children and how you as the parent can be your child's best advocate.

RSVP HERE if you wish to attend.
Our Annual Food Truck Challenge is a major fifth grade project involving subjects across the curriculum. When every student completed their projects, they sank the entirety of the information into their “business portfolio.” This dynamic collection of hard work was then presented to our in-school judges, and finalists were chosen from each class. The finalists will be presenting their projects to esteemed experts who have a distinct knowledge of the business on May 17th @ 10:00 a.m. during the  Third Annual Food Truck Challenge. The big question remains: Who will be the final four? 
Just a friendly reminder that all after school activities have ended (with the exception of Golf that will be ending on Monday). Kindly make note of this to ensure that children are being picked up during the appropriate carpool cycle.
