The students at Scholaris Gifted Academy are still basking in the success of their first annual Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser! We definitely have some entrepreneurs and dedicated students at SGA. These young scholars sought out and collected donations, created the advertising and oversaw the marketing of the event, made and sold beautiful bracelets, wired the event with an awesome sound system, designed and manged carnival games, politely served beverages, carefully reset tables, researched and taste tested the "best" pancake recipe, and followed up with personal notes of thanks to all those who donated items. They are all an inspiration to the staff and they are the reason SGA exists.
Parents in the Scholaris Gifted Academy community organize monthly meetings to discuss the developmental needs of gifted learners. Meetings are held on Wednesdays from 6pm to 8pm at the Fiddleheads Cafe in Mequon, 10530 N. Port Washington Road. Anyone with an interest in gifted learners is invited to attend these free informational discussions.
