Last reminders before Gifted Education Day.
2. A contact sheet to fill out and hand in after your appointment with your legislator(s). These sheets will NOT be available on Gifted Ed Day so print out and bring with you as many as you need for all your appointments. If a group is meeting with a Legislator, only one form for the entire group is needed so designate one person to write it.
You can also copy the text below if you’d rather send us your contact report through e-mail. Send your contact reports to firstname.lastname@example.org.
