“This year we are going to build on the momentum of last year’s inauguration of GRASP. There is a hunger to find information and to share information regarding gifted and talented children — they have special needs that must be met,” said Katie Sterns, who founded GRASP in the spring of 2011. “ What better way for GRASP to kick-off this year’s programming than with the depth of experience of parents in Saint Paul?”

Please RSVP attendance to Katie Sterns, GRASP Start-Up Leader: [email protected]
