The Shoreline Hi Cap Advocacy Group was formed in 2016 by parents to promote awareness of the needs of our Highly Capable learners.  We will provide information about gifted resources, upcoming events, enrichment opportunities for families, advocacy, and news about our group. Our website is www.shorelinehicap.org

 

Gifted Education Day is February 8, 2018. This day is a designated day for families and students to visit Olympia to meet their legislators to advocate for fully funding highly capable education. It is an excused absence day for your student and a excellent opportunity to learn how our government works. Last year we toured the Capitol building and plan on doing the same this year as well. This year we also have a goal of 25 families from Shoreline attending. More details will follow but mark your calendar now. And let your teacher know too - they might just want to join as well!

Guest speaker event: Austina De Bonte of the Northwest Gifted Child Association
 
The Shoreline Hi Cap Advocacy Group, in partnership with the Shoreline PTA Council, is excited to welcome back Austina De Bonte, president of the Northwest Gifted Child Association (NWGCA), to Shoreline for her presentation,"What Parents and Educators Need to Know About Smart Kids." This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about the social/emotional concerns that impact our advanced learners:  what's normal, what to expect as they grow, and why genuine challenge is vitally important to their learning, as well as the development of their academic talents --- from the preschool and elementary years all the way to high school and beyond. 
 
We will have a brief business meeting at 6:30 p.m., followed by Ms. De Bonte's presentation at 7 p.m.  Please contact us at shoreline.hicap.advocacy@gmail.com with questions.
 

A limited number of free childcare spots will be available on RSVP - “first come, first serve” basis - by the Dale Turner YMCA in the auditorium’s lobby area. Please email us at shoreline.hicap.advocacy@gmail.com with your name, the number of child(ren), and their names and ages, to reserve this service.  Children must be potty-trained.

This is a free speaker event for parents and for anyone who supports our students.  Don’t miss this!
