Three Important Events for the Gifted Community

October 8, 2013

Voices for Gifted Children Needed!

Three great chances to make a difference for gifted children are happening this week!  These are excellent opportunities to become more involved in advocacy for gifted learners and to find out more about what gifted students need to succeed.

Superintendent Community Coffee
Wednesday, October 9, 2013 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Parker Room at the Administration Center

RCS Superintendent Bob Shaner will give a presentation on a particular topic, followed by informal dialogue.

Often sparsely attended, these meetings provide an excellent opportunity to share your experiences and advocate for increased gifted services district-wide.

Rochester Community Schools Strategic Planning Community Event
Saturday, October 12, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM at Stoney Creek High School Auditorium

Rochester Community Schools is embarking on the development of a dynamic strategic plan and is encouraging all community stakeholders to attend this important Community Planning Event!

Keynote speaker Will Richardson, parent, blogger and author of Why School, will start the morning with a thought provoking message about what schools look like in a 2.0 world. Following his presentation, participants will have the opportunity to brain storm big ideas and goal areas that will help establish a foundation for building the kind of globally competitive education our students need and deserve.

RCS’s strategic plan will be created from input here and the followup meetings will influence our district for the next decade.  If you want increased options for your gifted children, this is an important event to attend!  Register at


Michigan Association for Gifted Children Fall Conference – Kick It Up a Notch
Saturday, October 12, 2013, from 8:30 AM to 4 PM at Baker College in Auburn Hills

Top experts in the field of gifted education will host sessions aimed at parents and teachers of gifted learners.  Gifted children will have an activity room with art workshops, robotics, and more.

The MAGC Conference is an excellent opportunity to understand your gifted learners better.  It is close to Rochester and very reasonably priced.  More information and registration link is at


I hope to see you at one or more of these events!  Please post in the comments if you are coming so that we can meet.

Thank you for reading Rochester SAGE.  Together we can make a difference for gifted children!
