What's Happening at the Magnet?

 Annual Giving Update
We are separated but still connected, and we
need our Magnet families to safeguard and support what makes the HGM so special.  Below is the
progress of our annual giving campaign.
Thank you, to all of you who have already donated.
For those have not donated yet, please consider giving what you can. 
$650 is our suggested donation, but more (or less) is equally welcome. 

Click Annual Fund Drive for more information and to make your tax-deductible donation today!

who contributed to the
Fright Night Film Fest, click Portola Student News.
As Thanksgiving approaches and we reflect back, it may seem difficult to be thankful in these chaotic times.  Fires, pandemics, political and social unrest; 
2020 has really been a quite a year.

Now more than ever, it is very important to remember the things with which we have been blessed.
Be grateful for your family, friends, food, shelter, your health, laughter, pets, your education and your teachers!

Together we will get through these unprecedented times and all come out the other side of this year stronger and more resilient.
Do you know someone who may be interested in attending our HGM Magnet program next year? 

Join us as we share how Portola Highly Gifted Magnet can meet the needs of your highly gifted/highly gifted applicable child.
