GT LIAISONS NEEDED!
Each PTA is strongly encouraged to identify a volunteer to serve as its GT Liaison for the 2016-2017 school year. The GT Liaison plays a vital role in advocating for the needs of highly able learners by providing a critical link among the school community, the MCCPTA GCC, and MCPS. The time commitment is rather minimal, and the role can be shared by more than one person at a school.
Examples of opportunities for GT Liaisons include, but aren’t limited to:
As MCPS begins its Choice Study response plan, the GT Liaison position is especially important this year.
Once your PTA has identified a GT Liaison for this year, please email that person’s name, school, and contact information to Iris Masucci, Vice Chair of the MCCPTA Gifted Child Committee, at email@example.com.
We look forward to working with every school and having a productive year!
Gifted Child Committee Event: 9/27/17
Prof. Guilbault come and present her study on social/emotional development of gifted students. Gifted students don't just need advanced academic materials, but help in other areas as well. The attached files are a picture of Prof. Guilbault and her presentation. Please feel free to distribute. We think that parents will find this information eye-opening.
