TUES 3/28 at 6:30pm | Giving Secondary Thought: A Community MakerSpace

formulaDo parents and educators give sufficient thought to what GT learners face on their journey through secondary?

Time doesn’t slow down as students reach the secondary classroom. Projects, deadlines, extra-curriculars, social life, course requirements, and testing new interests or ideas. How do you find the formula for learning and growth in grades 6 – 12?

Now add GT into the mix. Perfectionism. Underachievement. Trouble finding challenge and engagement… or people who relate. Masking ability to gain social acceptance. Making sense of pathways, AP, CIS, PSEO, and IB. Considering gap years vs. early college enrollment. All while school and career landscapes are shifting.

We invite you to add your voice to our Community MakerSpace discussion. Where do we need to keep advocating for secondary students in the St. Croix Valley? Are supports improving or hard to access? How do we help GT students step forward to get their voices heard? We’ll explore issues, goals, ideas, and what comes next.
