GT NEWS

GT Referrals for Grades 1-12

Just a reminder that Lago Vista ISD accepts referrals for students in grades 1-12 to be screened for Gifted and Talented services. We have two referral windows per year (Fall = October 1st and Spring = February 1st). Note: ALL kindergarteners are screened in the late spring (with parent/guardian consent), so referrals are not accepted for kindergarteners.


You may access the referral form on our Gifted and Talented page and they must be returned to the front office with a parent/guardian signature by the deadline of February 1st.

TESTING DATES

Parents/Guardians,


We of course want to see your child in school everyday, but we recognize they will miss for a variety of reasons related to their lives outside of school. We've included the Spring testing calendar that you may use as you plan your respective families events for the semester.

Wondering What Happened to Your Child's Lunchbox?

We probably have it; and their shoes; and their sweatshirts; and their coats; and their water bottles; and their backpacks.....Please have your children look through the lost and found at LVMS for items you know they wore/brought to school, but have never seen again. Lunch boxes and water bottles will be in the cafeteria by the microwaves. Clothing and all other items will be in the atrium area just off outside of the front office. We will be coordinating with clothing closets to receive our unclaimed clothing items very soon!

PROJECT VINATTA

LVMS is proud to present Project Vinátta, our very first "No Place for Hate" student-led, anti-hate/anti-bullying coalition. It's called Project Vinátta, for that's the Viking word for friendship. Students participating in Project Vinátta will be conducting a variety of inclusive, anti-hate activities within the school and community throughout the year. Students had the opportunity to fill out an application to explain why they would be an asset to the group. The Project Vinátta Coalition will begin developing activities this week during Skolar time.


Any parents who might be interested in serving as the parent representative on our Project Vinátta Coalition, please refer to the application and video link below.
