Saturday, November 10, 2018

1:00 - 2:30 PM
Northrop Community Ed Center - Gym

RSVP HERE (You do not need to be a member to attend)

As the start of the school year is wrapping up, come learn about strategies which can support your family in setting a good foundation that can be built on throughout the school year. Gifted Learner Coaching focuses on processes and strategies for supporting and empowering the gifted learner to build a personal relationship with learning and to increase their autonomy over time. Join us to select strategies which support you for a strong connection and foundation with your child.

Our guest speaker, Tina Van Erp, M.Ed, is a Gifted Learner Coach, Gifted Education Specialist, and creator of the River(R) Instructional Model. She has a coaching practice based out of the Cottonwood Center in White Bear Lake, MN. She believes in empowering gifted learners through knowledge of themselves as learners, a positive relationship with learning, and the skills for increased autonomy.

This is a free event and you do not need to be a member of GATEway to attend.  However, for our planning purposes, please register here by using the RSVP link above.  Child care for school age children will be provided for – but only for – families who register and request child care by November 5th.  To allow parents to focus on the speaker, we would appreciate it if you would make other child care arrangements for younger children.

The afternoon will start at 1:00pm in the Northrop gym. We invite your family to join us for a dessert potluck and social time.  You may bring a dessert or healthy snack to share.  Additional desserts along with drinks, plates, silverware, and napkins will be provided by GATEway.  At 1:30pm, school age children will move to Room 102 for supervised games and activities while the adults stay in the gym for the hour-long presentation. Ms. Van Erp will be available until 3:00 for an optional question and discussion time for those who are able to stay a little longer.

Northrop is located at 201 8th Street NW. The parking lot and main door are on the west side of the building. Contact pres@rochestergateway.com with any questions.
