A message from BVGT President Doug Alexander regarding the COVID-19 outbreak:
Dear BVGT members and friends,
Due to coronavirus precautions, Boulder Valley Gifted and Talented is suspending all in-person operations until further notice. After restrictions are lifted, BVGT will resume our work advocating for the needs of children who are gifted. Once we start up again, we’ll hold elections for our executive board positions, schedule the general membership meeting, and eventually launch our fundraiser.
Still, we remain committed to supporting our community of gifted learners through this challenging time. Below (in no particular order) are some suggestions from expert sources on how to support your gifted children’s needs at home. Note that the following is provided for your information and does not constitute a recommendation nor endorsement from BVGT. As always, adults are responsible for determining the appropriateness of any activity or website for children. Please direct any questions about the content directly to the website.
