FRoG Membership

The Friends of the Gifted and Talented, also known as FRoG, is a not-for-profit organization founded 28 years ago by a group of parents who wanted District 58 to provide special services for their gifted children. The current role of FRoG is to provide enrichment classes and activities such as chess tournaments for all Downers Grove area children. FRoG also co-sponsors the annual Science Fair with School District 58 as well as provides a support group for parents interested in gifted education.

Our organization is a member of the Illinois Association for Gifted Children (IAGC) and also the National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC). These organizations enable us to keep abreast of the needs of gifted education at the state level and at the national level. FRoG also utilizes memberships in IAGC and NAGC to provide resources for interested parents. Some of these materials are available at our Super Saturday classes at the monitor table. Feel free to stop by and acquaint yourself with some of the materials we have to offer.

You can join FRoG by filling in the form below and clicking on the Send-Membership-Form button once. By becoming a member of FRoG, you will receive e-mail notices of our upcoming activities and our Star Newsletter. There is currently no fee for joining our organization.
