Happy and Gifted Unconference at Westgate Community School
Saturday, August 27; 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Child Care Available
 
The Happy and Gifted Unconference is a place where parents, educators, and researchers can come together and share experience and knowledge about meeting the emotional needs of young people who are recognized for exceptional gifts.
Everyone has gifts and there are obvious advantages to having those gifts recognized by parents, schools, and other institutions. However, there are emotional challenges that come with that recognition. A few examples:
  • Identity: Am I defined by my gifts? How do others define me? How do I define myself?
  • Social Integration: If I am exceptional, that means I'm an exception, different.
  • Entitlement: I've gotten special treatment and now I expect it from everyone.
  • Self-Criticism: If I don't succeed in everything then I'm a failure.
  • Low Self-Esteem: Advanced development in one part of my life makes the areas where I'm still growing seem stunted or broken.
  • Sensitivity: I have insight and comprehension beyond my ability to process the emotions that accompany that.
There are endless ways to be gifted, so it's impossible to make a comprehensive list. Still, we all have some experiences and discoveries that are useful to share.
We will be using Open Space Technology as the unconference format, in which topics and the schedule are created by the attendees. The goal is to create the ability for attendees to share their experience and knowledge in the way that makes the most sense, rather than a preset structure.

High School Computer Insurance
High School students will be charged $20 for computer insurance.  Since high schoolers take their computers off-campus, there has been significant damage mostly caused by accidents.  This policy will cover damages to each school device.  It is our hope that this insurance will save Westgate families money.
