PTO CORNER

YEARBOOK: Each school year holds precious moments that you and your child will want to remember. The Groves Elementary yearbook allows you to cherish these moments for a lifetime in a beautiful hardcover keepsake.


For the first time, the 2019-2020 yearbook will contain all of the school year’s events, including carnival, Grizzly Game day and fifth grade events such as Manners Banquet. As with years past, the unique cover will be a student-designed masterpiece.


Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind memento! Take advantage of the presale going on now to buy your copy at a discounted price of $30.

To purchase your yearbook, go to Balfour.com and type in Groves Elementary Humble to select our school. Fifth grade parents can also purchase ads for their child to commemorate accomplishments and their final year of elementary school.


Presale ends December 31. Each yearbook purchase will include an autograph insert for students to collect memorable messages from students and staff.


If you have any questions, please email grovesptoyearbook@gmail.com

KINDERGARTEN GT REFERRALS 2019-2020

Kindergarten students may be referred by the parent(s), peers, teacher(s), other professional personnel, and/or themselves. Starting this year, there will be an online district testing portal. This portal will only be open during the assessment window(s) and will include parental permission to test, evaluate, and receive gifted program services. All kindergarten students will be screened and parents will be notified if referral for assessment is recommended based on the results of the screener. Parents of students who have been referred by individuals other than their parents will be contacted to complete the online referral form. No student may be denied access to the Humble ISD Gifted and Talented Program on the basis of race, creed, or handicapping conditions. Referrals should be completed in the online portal on the Advanced Academics website. The portal will be available until January 10. GT Online Referral Form
