SENG Parent Group Starts October 4th!

A SENG (Supporting the Emotional Needs of the Gifted) Parent Group is forming this October 4th. This interactive 8-week parent discussion group meets once a week and discusses key issues related to giftedness and real-world, research-based parenting strategies to help you address these issues in your family. Plus it's a great place to learn about local resources and learn from fellow parents who are facing similar challenges (without judgement!).

Thank you September Volunteers!

Popcorn Friday is a unique tradition at Northridge and it's one of our biggest fundraisers at Discovery Booster Club. It's only possible through the time and work of parent volunteers who help pop, bag, and deliver hundreds of bags to all of Northridge.

And we hope that you enjoyed meeting your fellow Discovery parents. This is a great place to get advice and get the inside scoop on opportunities for gifted kids at school and in Douglas County. 

If you're new to the Discovery program, this is where you meet and learned from other experienced parents with gifted kids. People are supportive because they have been where you are standing now.

Thank you to this month's volunteers: Rick Chiang, Kristen DeBeer, Tim Dennis, Wei Deng, Stephanie Geiger, Pooja Gupta, Christine Kleen, Karen Grewell, Jill Lezama, Heather Smith, Leann Spencer, Becca Waye. We couldn't have done it without you!

As you may know, Popcorn Friday is one of Discovery Booster Club’s larger fundraisers, and it’s a favorite event in the Northridge Elementary community. In the 2016-2017 school year, we had 75% participation with 600+ students receiving freshly popped popcorn one Friday per month! DBC earned more than $2,700 through Popcorn Friday sales.

We need your help to continue Popcorn Fridays at Northridge this year.

While Popcorn Friday is a successful and fun fundraiser, it requires a significant effort to pop, bag and deliver over 600+ bags of fresh hot popcorn each month. Based on feedback from our experienced Discovery parents, Discovery Booster Club is asking every Discovery family to complete 2 Popcorn volunteer shifts this school year. Volunteers may include parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and any other person close to you and your Discovery student.

There are about 100 students in the NRE Discovery program and we have 72 Popcorn Volunteer slots for the entire school year. If every family can complete 2 Popcorn Volunteer shifts, we will have more than enough volunteers to run this very profitable fundraiser.

Popcorn Friday is a valuable and well-loved tradition at Northridge. It’s also a big fundraiser that helps to support our Discovery teachers and your Discovery students. Please help us support our Discovery program and donate your time to help make Popcorn Friday successful.
