What is your One Little Word?
Middle School Students in the Explorer Program selected one little word for 2018, here are some of the words they chose: Encapsulate, release, dawn, commit, effort, focus, perform, time, light, choice, cherish, explore, courage, reality, and believe...to just name a few
Here's an idea! Pick your word for the year and then attend the RSU 22 Adult Education Watercolor Sign Making Paint Night to create a visual representation of your word! A visual reminder to last the entire year!

Do they worry incessantly about their grades?
Are they fearful to take risks and try new things that they perceive as “too hard”?
Perfectionism is a common characteristic of gifted children. Join Ms. Richardson for a parent discussion. Learn how to identify perfectionism, develop strategies to support your gifted learner at home, and meet other parents who share your experience!
