Lago Vista ISD Gifted and Talented Education Program should complete a referral form and return it the student's school by October 15th. Note: Parent consent is obtained each spring for all kindergarten students, so referrals for G/T screening are not accepted for students in kindergarten.

Hello LVES Families! The character trait for October is Respect. Students are learning how they can show respect to their parents, friends, teachers, school, and themselves. At home, you can remind your child that respect can mean: Using good manners, being tolerant and accepting of differences, being considerate of others, dealing peacefully with anger, insults, and disagreements--not threatening, hitting, or hurting anyone, and following the Golden Rule~Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.
Stay tuned for more information about Red Ribbon Week at the end of October, when students will learn more about respecting themselves by being healthy and drug-free!
“I respect myself and insist upon it from everybody. And because I do it, I then respect everybody, too.” ~Maya Angelou
Hola familias de LVES! El rasgo de carácter para octubre es el respeto. Los estudiantes están aprendiendo cómo pueden mostrar respeto a sus padres, amigos, maestros, la escuela y a sí mismos. En casa, puede recordarle a su hijo que el respeto puede significar: usar buenos modales, ser tolerante y aceptar las diferencias, ser considerado con los demás, lidiar pacíficamente con la ira, los insultos y los desacuerdos, no amenazar, golpear o herir a nadie, y siguiendo la Regla de Oro~ Haz a los demás como te gustaría que los demás te hicieran a ti.
¡Manténgase atento a más información sobre la Semana del Listón Rojo a fines de octubre, cuando los estudiantes aprenderán a respetarse a sí mismos al estar saludables y libres de drogas!
“Me respeto e insisto en eso de todos. Y porque lo hago, también respeto a todos.” ~Maya Angelou
