SPAN (Synergy/SAGE Parent Action Network) is the Prior Lake/Savage chapter of Minnesota Council for the Gifted and Talented (www.mcgt.net ). Our first meeting will be on Monday October 7th at 7pm in the WestWood Media Center and will focus on our plans for the year as well as welcome speaker Erin Boltik (Director of Gifted Programs and Services in the Bloomington School district) to talk about Gifted 101…What every parent of a gifted child should know. In particular, Erin’s presentation is designed to help parents understand the needs of schools, affirm their position as an essential advocate for their child, and support everyone’s efforts to do what is best for a child/student. Please email Apryl at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions and/or to be included on the SPAN email list, and see our website at www.mcgt.net/priorlake to see our complete meeting schedule. We hope to see you at our October meeting!
