Guest speaker to address District 158 gifted group

ALGONQUIN –The Gifted and Talented Program for School District 158 and the Community Organization for Gifted Children will hold a meeting Monday.

The topic will be “The Future for Your Gifted Child: Making Sure They Are Taking the Correct Steps to Success,” featuring guest speaker Dr. Kim Freitag.

Freitag has an extensive background in education and gifted education.

She has given several presentations on gifted education and has done research regarding challenging gifted and talented high school students.

The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. at the District 158 Administration Office, Room 180, 650 Academic Drive, Algonquin. Guests are asked to enter through Door 3.

For those who are not currently a member of the Community Organization for Gifted Children, registration will be available at the meeting. There also will be activities for students in grades six to eight in the board room. Admission for each student is $5 at the door.  

This is not high school specific. It is open to all who share in the desire to keep children on the best path from elementary school into college and beyond.
