Super Saturday PowerPoint

One of the advantages to being a member of PAGE is access to Super Saturdays. Twice a year, PAGE Super Saturdays give students the opportunity to take enrichment classes while parents can attend our parent sessions.

This past Super Saturday, Wendy Carlyle and Marsha Wilcox from WCPSS AIG presented the Intro into the Gifted Child and discussed the changes to the AIG plan for our morning parent session. They have kindly allowed us to post the PDF of their PowerPoint presentation on our website.

Wake County Schools forum

The Wake County school board is hosting a series of forums designed to allow parents to speak up about what they’d like to see from their schools. If you’d like to come, speakers can begin signing up at 4 pm. Members of the school board will speak from 6:00 to 6:30 at each event, and anyone who signed up may speak from 6:30 until 8:00.  Attendance at the first forum was very low, so the school board would love to hear from more parents!

Upcoming forums:

January 27
Broughton High School

Panther Creek High School

February 3
Southeast Raleigh High School

February 17
