The Academic Booster Club of Puyallup got its start as a community of families who joined together to support the needs of highly capable children in the Puyallup School District. Highly Capable students needed someone to advocate for them, and someone to help provide supplemental educational materials that schools could not afford, but that were necessary for them to meet their distinctive intellectual needs. ABC has also been there to support teachers and administrators as they pursue professional development training to better serve highly capable children. We were there when the QUEST Program for Academic Excellence was born, and will continue to support QUEST as it evolves to meet the needs of our children. We worked with the school district on behalf of our children to expand their highly capable offerings from elementary school only to including Junior High Schools in the PAGE program. We will continue to work with the District to help find the best solutions for all its children.
