I have recently held the November monthly meeting with the Gifted students and have given the students a list of upcoming events for the 2013/2014 calendar year. Please go over this with
your son/daughter and decide which these events your child would like to attend. Please checkmark or circle one or more events and have your son/daughter return it to me before December 2nd .
Myself and few other students attended CSUNA 2013 on November 21-22 which is a mock United Nations Assembly event attended by the majority of Catholic schools at the Catholic Education Center. This was memorable extracurricular experience for those students who attended.
Extracurricular events like these extend the boundaries of the classroom by offering each
student an educational experience which can be transferred back to the classroom. I hope that this can assist your child’s educational journey to reach that enrichment apex.
