    This is fantastic! I have twins that are in seventh grade now, so they will be in eighth grade next year. I would love to know how to help get them and ideally, their school, involved in future summits.

    I have solid contacts, the principal and PTSA president. I am happy to facilitate introductions/invitations and so on if there is an opportunity for additional local schools to be involved in a future summit, I would greatly appreciate additional information.
