Join CGA for a very short General Meeting, followed by a family friendly presentation by Kidprov. Since 1991, Kidprov has been performing their unique brand of improv comedy for thousands of kids and parents across Texas. Formed from the blend of two masters of improv and one teacher who didn’t have his masters, Kidprov infused educational objectives into their shows without losing the fun. But all the educational trappings aside, Kidprov brings the laughs.
Registration is required for all CGA members and non-members. Ciick here to register.

Looking forward to laughing with you on May 21st!
Coppell Gifted Assocation is thrilled to offer (for the ﬁrst time ever) a MOSAIC parent class! We have limited space for parents to attend a class that explores parenting our digital natives:
iGuide: Parenting Kids in the Digital Age Digital Citizenship, Social Media, and Devices, Oh MY!
9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Coppell Middle School North
(Note that this class runs during our Student MOSAIC Session)
Parents – come explore some of the components of digital literacy with us in this week long workshop. We will take a look at some of the most common concerns and excitements of being a parent in the digital age. Here¹s the best part – you will help decide what concepts and issues you would most like to dive into! This workshop will be broken into two sections: The ﬁrst half will be a guided exploration learning experience and the second half will be a book club for parents with a great text to discuss!
Space will be limited, so participants will be taken on a “ﬁrst come ﬁrst serve basis.” The cost is $100 or if your child is taking 2 MOSAIC classes in June, $50. To register, contact Carrie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Calling all 6th-8th graders. Learn the basics of building electronics with Arduino. Students will learn how to control LEDs, sensors and motors with the Arduino microcontroller, to build simple robots, wearable computers and electronic toys. Event includes an Arduino kit to keep. Bring your own laptop- this will help you continue exploring after the event is over. Prior exposure to programming beneficial. Space is limited.
When: May 8th – 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. and May 9th – 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Where: Coppell Middle School West

The middle school panel discussion that was set for April 1st is having to be cancelled. Because we will not be able to reschedule prior to students making course selections, this event will not be held at a later date. If a parent has questions about their learner in middle school and their course selections, please contact the middle school counselors. The middle school counselors will be able to answer those type of questions.
