Howard County Gifted and Talented Parent Academy: Building Resiliency in Advanced-Level LearnersAll interested parents are invited to attend the G/T Parent Academy "Building Resiliency in Advanced-Level Learners" at Atholton High School on Thursday, February 5, 2015 from 7 - 8:30 p.m. Dr. Angela Housand, Assistant Professor and Gifted Program Coordinator at University of North Carolina Wilmington, will share her expertise.
Attaining success requires resiliency in order to overcome challenges along the way. Yet many advanced learners expect to “get the right answer” on their first attempt and once faced with truly challenging situations, give up before trying. This session provides parents with strategies to support high potential youth as they engage in the struggles that lead to meaningful SUCCESS.

Dear GT Students,
Every year, the High School GT Research Program hosts a conference in April to showcase some of the outstanding work of Independent Research and Intern/Mentor students. This conference is FOR students, and run BY students. We would like to offer you an opportunity to be involved in the planning of the 22nd Annual Student Learning Conference as a member of the Student Executive Committee (SEC). Students will be asked to attend two evening meetings per month between January and March. Attendance is imperative, as there is much to do in a very short time. Our kick-off meeting will be Wednesday, December 17th at Mt. Hebron High School (9440 Old Frederick Road, Ellicott City, MD 21042) from 6:30-7:30pm. Meetings will alternate between Mt. Hebron and Oakland Mills High School in Columbia to even–out commuting for students involved.
If you are interested in being involved, please fill out the following form and we will be in touch in December with the meeting agenda: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1J4GBoIiG4UAOorPoHYqFWcRN6zTadC57b0aT9qW02oU/viewform
We look forward to working with you!
Dr. Kiehl (MHHS)
Mr. James (OMHS)
