OAGC Parent Day 2015

Parent Day 2015

The OAGC Parent Day 2015 is Oct. 11. I hope that you can make it. Here is a few things about the day.

  • First is the Division meeting–ALL parents welcome!
  • Stephanie Tolan will be the bulk of the afternoon. She will keynote and then we have a Q&A with her. She has been a past Keynote speaker at NAGC.
  • Then a parent/professional panel on how to be an advocate–from classroom level on up. The panel will be comprised of a professor from OU/parent, former Gifted Coordinator, Ann Sheldon (OAGC Director) and a parent or two. Angela Grimm will moderate.
  • The day will also feature one of the authors from the new Fordham book called Failing Our Brightest Kids, a look into how the US is doing too little to educate students to achieve at high levels.
A great jam-packed day and it only costs $5!!!
Parent Day is a great opportunity to network and learn from other families–and often the educational/game vendors have set up early so you can buy from them.
