Back to School Kick-off Meeting Success!

I'm still buzzing from the success of last night's Parents of Gifted Children Resource Group meeting. The turn out was the best we ever had with 9 parents (including myself). We gathered around two tables at the Dover Newsstand, which has a great cafe atmosphere, for an informal chat about ourselves, our kids, and school experiences. I had a great time and it was so nice to talk with parents who know where you are coming from, don't think you are an alien from outerspace, or a pushy parent :)

I shared a helpful online resources list handout (which I hadn't made enough copies of). Most of them are listed on the side of this blog.

Other members shared information about activites such as starting a LEGO club, joining a Chess club at Our Game Table on Saturdays from 1-3, and going to the Delaware Mineralogical Socieities Gem, Mineral, and Fossil Show the first weekend in March.

I'll keep you posted on the next meeting date/time/location and I'm hoping that we can discuss books that you and your children enjoy (with the kids joining in on this meeting).

Thanks for reading,
