Silent Auction Solicitation Committee

The 2019 Trivia Night and Silent Auction Committee is looking for a few more members to help visit 5 local businesses to help us get items for the silent auction at the 2019 Trivia Night. We have an info packet and a list of place we still need visited to make it as easy as possible. If you are willing to volunteer, please e-mail for more information. 


Silent Auction Donations Needed: The 2019 Trivia Night and Silent Auction is looking for Hudson parents who may be able to donate items or services for the silent auction items! We are open to any item you may be able to are some ideas:

  • sports tickets
  • access to a weekend stay at a vacation sport
  • Products or services of some kind

Think about family members or close friends who may have items or services they would be willing to offer as part of a silent auction basket!


We are also looking for people to host a sign-up party that others might be interested in coming to at a predetermined date of your choosing. Partner up with another family or two and think up something fun! If you are willing to donate something, please e-mail for more information. 


Girls on the Run

Girls on the Run 2019: Are you or your daughter interested in being involved in Girls on the Run this year?  Girls on the Run is a 10-week youth development program for girls grades 3rd-5th, teaching life skills through interactive lessons and running games.  The season runs late February to early May, after school twice a week, finishing up with the Girls on the Run 5K.  No running experience necessary!   Please contact Meagan Wade (, 314-961-6693) if you are interested or have any questions.  


WG Gifted & Talented Nomination Deadline Reminder

We are fast approaching the deadline for nominations for the WG Gifted and Talented program (grades 1-12) and the Gifted Fine Arts program (grades 2-8) to be submitted.  To be considered this school year, nomination forms must be submitted on or before December 17, 2018. This deadline will be honored so that the evaluation process can be completed in a timely manner.



Students may be nominated for the Webster Groves Gifted and Talented Program any time during the year. Nomination forms are available at each school building from the gifted specialist.  Nomination forms can also be downloaded from the Webster Groves Gifted & Talented curriculum webpage.


We are now able to resume first grade NNAT3 screening and anticipate completing screening no later than Nov. 30.  We encourage first grade parents to nominate after the NNAT3 screening has been completed. Students that meet the screening criteria will be notified no later than Dec. 10. Those students that do not meet the screening criteria may still be nominated.


The Gifted Fine Arts program (grades 3-8) evaluates students in the spring of each school year.  Students will be screened this school year, with programming to begin in the fall of next school year. For example, students in grade 2 may be screened this year, with programming to begin in their 3rd grade year. The student interview portion of the evaluation process will take place during the school day on Feb. 28, 2019 and March 1, 2019 at the Webster Groves Service Center. Transportation will be provided. There will be interview sessions, in the morning and in the afternoon each day.  We are unable to accept nominations for this program after the Dec. 17th  deadline.

If you have more questions about the nomination process, please contact Kristy Jackson, Gifted Education Coordinator  or the gifted specialist in your building.
