Gifted and Talented Advisory Committee (GTAC)

Are you a parent of a gifted child or a community member committed to gifted education? We invite you to join the Gifted and Talented Advisory Committee.

Our goal is for each school to be represented by at least one parent or community member liaison.


We are asking GTAC Representatives to share their passion for the well-being of our gifted children through attending all four GTAC meetings this year.

Though we are looking for at least one representative per school, anyone is welcome to attend the meetings. We welcome your involvement.

GTAC meets 5:30-6:30 via WebEx

Thursday, September 9 Meeting Link Meeting topic: Gifted Education Monitoring (GEM)

Thursday, November 4 Meeting Link Meeting topic: Gifted Identification

Thursday, February 3 Meeting Link

Thursday, April 14 Meeting Link


If you are interested in serving on the committee, please communicate your interest to the Gifted Resource Teacher at grace.herrera@d11.org.

From the health room...

*If your child has been diagnosed with a condition that may effect them at school such as:
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Skin Conditions
We highly recommend that you provide us with a doctor's note so that their symptoms may not be treated as something more serious.


*Please make sure you fill out and return the Health Information Form that came home in Thursday folders.


*Please continue to monitor your child's health each morning before they arrive at school.


Thank you for your continued partnership as we keep our kids safe and healthy! :)

Attention Bus Families!

We have been told by transportation that some bus stops and times may have changed from last year. Please visit this page on the D11 site and plug in your home address to see information about your child's bus stop.
