A Message from AGATE’s Co-Presidents
Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! We hope it will be a rewarding and enjoyable one for you and your children.
We would like to begin the year by inviting YOU to get involved in AGATE’s advocacy for the unique needs of gifted students and other advanced learners in our district. Whether you are the parent of a kindergartner, the guardian of a high school senior, or a community member who values educational excellence, we need your help to ensure that all Port students receive an appropriate and challenging education designed to help them achieve their fullest potential.
How can you get involved? There are a number of ways you can support and participate in our work:
- Join us for coffee! We’re looking forward to continuing our monthly “Connecting Over Coffee” gatherings — a casual opportunity to meet other parents, share strategies and resources, and discuss challenges. Our first coffee is scheduled for Thursday, September 14th at 10:00 am.
- Come to our annual events. Mark your calendars for our informative and engaging events! Next up is our Enrichment Opportunities Fair on 10/10 at 7:30 pm in the Schreiber Cafeteria.
- Become a member. Click here to become part of a community of parents and guardians who are advocating for advanced learners and enrichment opportunities for all.
- Join our advisory board. We welcome your ideas and perspective! For this year’s advisory board, we need liaisons for each school — especially Daly and Guggenheim. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact us at email@example.com.
Best wishes for a wonderful school year!
Nancy Ziselman and Elizabeth Milbank Sobel
AGATE Needs You!

We always welcome new members! For next year’s advisory board, we need liaisons for each school, and we are also looking for one or two website directors.
