Read the attached brochure to learn about a conference for high school students and their teachers, held at the Marshfield Clinic this coming February.

The Fritz Wenzel Science Conference is designed “to inspire high school students to pursue a career in the science field,” as well as to “encourage high school science teachers to enhance their classroom environment by incorporating the most relevant aspects of healthcare science and technology.”

PARENTS-Madison SENG Group Offering series of meetings

Here is an opportunity to connect with other parents.... SENG stands for "Supporting the Emotional Needs of the Gifted." This would be a great group to be a part of if you have questions relating to advocating for your child or even general questions.

I am a local SENG Model Parent Group Facilitator in the Madison area.  For those who are looking for a discussion group for parents and advocates of gifted children I will be starting a new group on Tuesday, January 27, at 10:30 am.  Details for this ten-week series will be forthcoming shortly.   Meantime, for those who wish to learn more about joining us please feel free to connect via e-mail or phone.  

These groups are described as “lifesavers” by many parents who struggle with the complexities of gifted children, and / or advocates who wish to support young learners with a greater understanding.   By the way, if there is enough interest I will also organize another group specifically in the evening for those who are not available in the daytime.  Please feel free to share this information with parents and advocates who are seeking support, positive conversation, resources and much more.
