Gower Foundation Speaker Series

Join the Gower Foundation for Excellence in Education for a  Parent Speaker Series focused on topics important to you. Our goal is to bring to you experts on topics that are relevant and important to us, as parents, as we think about raising children who are prepared for the 21st Century. As we considered the value added that each of these could bring to the parents of Gower 62, we realized that not only would we benefit from hearing directly from experts on each topic, but also from those individuals who have the most direct impact on our children alongside us as parents, the amazing teachers, administration, and staff. After hearing from our guest speakers, each session will conclude with a panel presentation and Q&A by the Gower Administrative team and incredible staff who can help speak to how our district is approaching these topics with our children. As always, we welcome any suggestions and feedback from you all! We look forward to seeing you at Gower Middle School for each of these interesting talks!
