The 2013-2014 school year was first year of the LGA Grant Award Program. Your membership dollars helped to fund over $4,000 in grant awards to Lovejoy ISD GT teachers that requested enhancements to Spark Inspiration for learning in their classrooms.

Every Lovejoy ISD campus received funds to support GT teachers and related GT activities. For a complete list of awards funded by LGA, please visit our website under the Members tab/ Teacher Grant Requests or click on the following link:

Brainworks

LGA presents “Homework and Organization Strategies for Gifted Students” by Carla Crutsinger, founder of Brainworks, on Wednesday, November 5 at 12:30 p.m. in the Lovejoy ISD Administration Building – Training Room, 259 Country Club Road, Allen 75002.

What would you do if your gifted child “hit a wall” when suddenly material became very complex and the volume overwhelming? This workshop taps into right hemisphere strategies that give new options for learning difficult material.

Ms. Crutsinger has over 30 years experience working with gifted students with a variety of learning problems. You can read more about Carla Crutsinger at: www.brainworks.info
