Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2012!  It’s hard to believe that 2011 has passed so quickly, but it was a year filled with exciting changes and wonderful programs for our gifted students.  It has been a great pleasure to meet and work with so many of you.  I look forward to continued relationships in the new year to come.

Stay tuned for important announcement soon to come, including:

  • Spring 2012 workshop schedule
  • Summer enrichment opportunities
  • Differentiated Opportunity Logs
  • Ongoing book club meetings and selections

Warm wishes for a great start to 2012!



American Sign Language Workshop

Monday, October 3, 2011 our elementary students had the opportunity to meet Caroline Burrow, NIC Advanced sign language interpreter from New York City.  Caroline shared the history and development of American Sign Language.  Students also learned about deaf culture, sign language, and opportunities for continued study in our community.  It was a great way to kick-off our year of workshops.

Lots of workshops and important events for all ages are upcoming.  Be sure to check in on the school division’s webpage for schedule and sign-ups.


A new section has been added to our blog:  Upcoming Events.  Check here for community events and resources such as those offered at Roanoke College and through Roanoke Valley Reads.
