All evaluations will be digital this year so that we can keep digital copies, as well as cumulative folder copies for future years. This way your child's future teachers will have next year (and the years to come) can easily review the evaluations as well. These evaluations will be emailed to the primary email on file for your child on January 4, 2021. We will do this again at the end of May for the spring semester. *If you would prefer multiple emails be included or want to make sure we have the correct email on file, please email Ms. Hunt (ahunt@nbisd.org) and provide those emails to her. Thank you!

GT Service Project

On Wednesday, December 16 students in 6th-8th grade GT walked over to the Memory Care of New Braunfels center to sing holiday carols with our choir teacher, Mr. Perez, deliver care packages, ornaments, artwork, bird feeders and birdseed, fidget items, decorations, as well as pre-packaged snacks for the residents and those who work at the center. This project was over a month's worth of work and couldn't have happened without our amazing sponsors: On the Grind, Brake Solutions, Alkire Orthodontics, Keller Periodontics, and Hotaling.

This service project was near and dear to Ms. Beabout's heart, as her aunt is a resident of the facility. Her, like many others, have missed seeing the faces of those they love during this lonely time of COVID-19. We were so honored to be a part of this event and it was our privilege to bring a little joy and happiness into the lives of those who live and work at Memory Care of New Braunfels.

In January we will be emailing the first semester GT evaluations so you can see what your child and GT advisory teacher have to say about their experience thus far this school year in GT. We will also send another evaluation home via email the last week of school in May. Both evaluations will go in your child's cumulative folder as well.

Please contact me or your child's advisory teacher if you have any questions or concerns about the GT program at ORMS.
