January Newsletter


Happy New Year and welcome to the second half of the school year! We have a lot of exciting events planned that we hope you can attend! We will not be having a regular daytime meeting this month. Instead, we are thrilled to host a much anticipated follow up to one of our most well attended meetings in BVPAGE history. Diane McLean, MEd, PCC is returning to lead Executive Functioning Part 2 on January 30th from 7-8:30 p.m. at Hilltop. Last time, we learned all about why our kids' brains sometime freeze up in a fright or flight mode when faced with complex tasks and time management. This session will focus more on practical suggestions and strategies to help them better manage their time, homework, and other responsibilities. As a reminder, this is a free event to those families signed up for Friends of BVPAGE. Otherwise, there will be a $5 entry fee. Click here to sign up for Friends of BVPAGE and attend ALL of our evening events for free plus earn other perks! Either way, these contributions will go a long way toward helping us secure more great speakers! Our Summer Opportunities Fair is coming up quickly on February 6th from 7p.m. to 8:30p.m at Hilltop. We are continuing to grow and refresh our camps and would love your help in spreading the word about this event that is open to to the whole community. It may seem early to start thinking about summer plans, but this gives you the opportunity to take advantage of early bird specials and have a lot of great information handy to choose from when you are ready! Please see the flyer for more information! We are also excited to announce that we have set the date for this year's Brain Blizzard. It will be on Saturday, April 4th from 10 a.m. to noon at the Corbin Park Scheels training center and is open to 7th and 8th grade Blue Valley gifted students. Registration is $5 per child or free for up to two children if you are a Friend of BVPAGE. See flyer for more information and click here to register today! We are looking forward to seeing you at one or all of these events! Here's to a happy and healthy 2020!
