THIS MONTH’S TOPIC: Top Technology Apps for Brilliant Minds
Let’s face it, you aren’t going to keep them away from the smart phones, tablets, game systems and other tech that envelop us today. Don’t fight it! Instead, take proactive steps to get the most cognitively stimulating apps and technology in their hands. In this workshop, we’ll suggest not just apps, but ways your child can use technology in a developmentally positive way to increase his/her productivity and intellectual growth. Yes, we WILL be discussing Minecraft!
Additionally, you got a preview of Frisco Gifted Association at the last meeting. Find out more about this exciting new opportunity for our GT and high-achieving students and families. This is a great way to get involved in an up-and-coming advocacy group at the ground level. If you want to know more now, LIKE their Facebook Page to get updates!
Finally, after many requests, we are adding the dinner element back into our program with the help of Frisco Gifted Association. This is as a convenience to parents and students and their busy schedules. We want to make your attendance at game night as convenient as possible. Meals will be $4 each and will be pizza, side and drink.
Please let us know when you RSVP how many people plan to eat & if you prefer vegetarian options.
RSVP’s for food should be sent no later than Monday, December 16 at midnight.

Q. What kind of games should my child bring?
A. The best games for game night are ones that require skill and strategy, not just luck alone!
