Nominations for the Gifted and Talented Program

Nominations will be open for the Conroe Independent School District Gifted and Talented program April 1 through April 30, 2019. Summer testing is only for students who are new to CISD this semester or who were absent during January testing. Nominations will be accepted through April 30, and testing will be held June 4, 5, and 6th from 8:30-11:30 at Bush Elementary.

Library Volunteers Needed

Library volunteers fill a very important role, as it frees up the librarian to spend more time teaching and helping our students foster a love of reading. By getting the books back out on the shelves as quickly as possible it allows the children to have a wide variety of books to choose from.

Below you will find the link to our Signup page.

Thank you all for your continued consideration and support. We look forward to working with you!
