April 2012 Meeting – Enrichment Beyond the Classroom

April 2012 Meeting: Enrichment Beyond the Classroom

Please join us for our April meeting:
Monday April 23, 2012 – 6:30-8:00 p.m.
at the Shepard Center, 873 Walcutt Avenue, Columbus, Ohio 43219 (MAPS)

Join fellow parents of gifted students for a meeting at the Shepard Center about enrichment options. Find out about summer opportunities and subject areas not covered in the classroom. You are encouraged to bring your own suggestions to share.

At this meeting we will also be looking ahead to next year, with election of officers for next year.
You might ask: why choose next year’s officers now?
… That is because before the first meeting of 2012-2013 there is much planning and work to do. The officers join with the all important Steering Committee to make all the good things happen. Steering will meet this summer to map out next year — and periodically throughout the year. (Participants in Steering benefit not only the students they parent, but all the gifted and talented students in the district – and even perhaps beyond. Steering people learn how things work, who to talk to, and how to get things done. This can be a very satisfying experience!
While Steering Committee is unelected, it is the most important group in P.A.C.E.
Please consider joining in the Steering Committee!
Please advise officers of your interest in Steering us through 2012-2013.

We will have child care at this meeting. Please have your child bring a favorite book or game – or homework.

As always, there will be time for sharing other triumphs and concerns, as we follow our mission: We are a community of parents, grandparents, guardians and families working to help gifted children shine. We know the frustrations, the joys and the intensity of raising a gifted child and we support all those who are on this difficult and wonderful journey.
