Dear Parents,
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.
 
Thank You,
Mr. Premdas
