GT Summit Recap: Building Community with Our Klein Family
On September 28, 2019, the annual GT Summit was held at the Klein Multipurpose Center. Families of GT and Advanced Learners gathered together for a day of learning and fun. Our vision for this event was to build community by educating our families about the innovative programming in Klein ISD, the services being provided by Klein ISD educators and tips on how to support their advanced learners from home. The presenters at this included members of the College and Career Pathways Team, the Advanced Academics Team, Parent Liaisons, Librarians, GT Advocates, and parents of GT Learners. These amazing Promise to Purpose Investors spent their Saturday building relationships with our Klein ISD community.

Some of the sessions offered to families presented information about programs such as AP Capstone, IB, Project Lead the Way, Duke TIP and Humanities classes. Also included were informative sessions about supporting GT learners through specific questioning strategies, academic portfolios, college applications, financial aid, and the social-emotional needs of gifted. Through our partnership with the Family Engagement Department and with the help of some gracious Parent Liaisons, we were able to offer translations of many sessions in Spanish as well.
While the parents learned from our Klein ISD team, the students were highly engaged in the arena of the KMPC through hands-on experiences led by Klein ISD students and teachers. One very popular presentation was the Chemistry Roadshow from Texas A & M University!
Many of our parents, students, and teachers left the Summit grateful for the opportunity to interact, discuss, and have FUN with learning!!!
