Gifted & Talented Parent Awareness Meeting

If you are considering referring your child to be screened for the Montgomery ISD Gifted and Talented program, we want to encourage you to attend an informational meeting on Tuesday, October 1 at 6:00 p.m. at the MISD Education Support Center, located at 20774 Eva Street in Montgomery. We will discuss the characteristics of gifted children and the process that MISD will use to identify those students who require these special services.

More information is available on the MISD website by clicking HERE.

Parents of currently identified GT students do NOT need to attend, as a new referral is not needed for students already receiving GT services. This meeting is only for parents who are considering referring their student for GT screening.

A Note from The Counselor's Office

Students’ social and emotional development lends to academic learning and at MRE we recognize the importance of tending to a child’s heart in addition to their mind. Research has shown that the presence of a school counselor supports a safe learning environment and contributes to students’ feelings of security, well-being, and belonging. If you ever have any questions regarding our counseling program or emotional/social learning at MRE, please don't hesitate to contact me at renee.sorrell@misd.org (or by clicking 'contact me' on the right!)


Some of the services she provides include:


  • Individual counseling
  • Classroom Character Education
  • Schoolwide Events
  • Parent Education/Consulting
  • Gifted and Talented Testing
  • Food Backpack Program
  • Watch DOGS coordinator
  • Leadership Academy
  • Angel Tree

Kindergarten & 1st Grade Parents - Please Read!!!!

This week your student will bring home his/her student ID number on a practice paper. This number is their lunch number, computer username and used in Library for check out. They will have the same number as long as they are enrolled in MISD. Please help them learn and practice typing their number on the keypads. Thank you for helping with this.

Character Trait of The Month

The MRE counseling program aims to foster and develop students’ social and emotional learning. One way accomplish that is by teaching the students a different character trait each month. Character education is a proactive movement that supports the social, emotional, and ethical development of all students. It creates a positive school climate, encourages mutual respect and appreciation, and teaches students to be their best selves and how to reach their full potential.


Our character value for the month of September is TRUST. We explain to students that trust is “putting your confidence in someone you can depend on.”


We encourage you to reinforce the character trait of the month at home with your student(s)!
