You are invited to the GATEway Fall Social on Thursday, September 30th, from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm at the RCTC Heintz Center. This is a great way to kick off the year, to get to know a little more about GATEway and to meet other families with gifted children.Please join us at 6:30 pm in the RCTC Heintz Center Commons for dessert and social time. At 7:00 pm, the school age children will move to room HA 102 for supervised games and activities. The adults will move to room HA 104 to hear our guest speaker, Kathy Geary, present "Advocating for Your Gifted Child." Kathy Geary is a Minnesota Council for the Gifted and Talented (MCGT) board member and the coordinator of the Advocacy Project. She will outline a step-by-step process for identifying educational priorities and developing a plan for working together with your school. The Fall Social is cosponsored with RCTC Community and Youth Programs.

Please RSVP below so we know approximately how many people to expect. There is a small chance our speaker presentation room will fill up. If that happens, we'll post a notice on the website and notify the affected families by email or phone. For this reason, we'd appreciate it if you would contact us if you later decide you will not be attending. 

Contact us at with questions or to alter your RSVP. Thanks!
