The Great GATSPI

Gifted and Talented Student Parent Institute 2016

This Special Day is Coming Soon!! Mark Your Calendars!

On May 14th, the Advanced Academic Department is hosting the inaugural Gifted and Talented Student and Parent Institute (GATSPI). We are referring to it as "The Great GATSPI", and will incorporate a theme inspired from the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Parents will forge their way through the illusions and realities of giftedness, walk away with an abundance of information and strategies for meeting the social and emotional needs of gifted children, and explore how to best advocate for their gifted child.
