GATE Parent Meeting on May 9

Here are many resources we talked about during our parent meeting on May 9. Give your children EXPERIENCES. Don’t ask for packets or worksheets for the summer.
Sign your kids up for all the things that they don’t have time for during the school year. Ask them what they want to do and find out what they are interested in.
