Although it has only just begun, February is already proving to be an exciting month at Gideon Study Center. On Friday, February 5, as the biggest snowstorm in years closed in on western Pennsylvania, 13 Gideon students and their families, tutors, and coaches joined thespians from Blackburn Study Center to perform scenes from Shakespeare’s plays for the Pittsburgh Public Theater’s Shakespeare Scene and Monologue Contest. See more about this special Gideon extra-curricular activity here. Check back after February 13 to find out if any of Gideon’s teams advance to the finals.
On February 9, Gideon will host its first Open House on-site, beginning at 8:45 a.m.. Interested families will have the opportunity to meet tutors and board members, preview the 2010-2011 curriculum, and see the center in operation. If you would like to join us at either this Open House on Tuesday or at the identical Open House on March 23, please contact us and let us know.
