NEW SEMESTER ROTATION
If you asked me about the T.H.I.N.K sign please email me. I cannot remember who asked!!!
From Mrs. Villarreal
*I will be hosting the Anchored for Life annual training in my office tomorrow, 1/16/20. This will be from 8-2,so if you have any student emergencies, please refer them to the office.
*Remember to invite me or other administrators to your RtI meetings. If you are considering referring a student for testing, an RtI meeting is necessary and information supporting the referral should be entered in DMAC, including testing accommodations.
*I will be GT testing in April, but I wanted you to start thinking about students you will be referring. Remember, the testing is a two day, all day event. I give two tests, and each is timed. Testing accommodations are usually not allowed for these tests. I will be asking for referrals in February.
*Keep in mind some of the qualities of a GT student: Highly developed curiosity; excellent memory; rapid learner; able to put thoughts together quickly; interest in experimenting and doing things differently; idealism and sense of justice; advanced comprehension of metaphors, abstract ideas, and word nuances; can solve number puzzles and number patterns quickly; and can think in an abstract, complex, and logical manner. These are just a few characteristics to consider before you refer. Last year, I tested over 100 students (mostly 3rd graders) and not a lot qualified. GT is more than just good grades. They are also expected to keep up with the challenges and rigor of the GT curriculum. Just something to consider.

Music Program for Second Semester: Very Important 4th Grade Teachers-REMINDER!!!
Mrs. Williams will only have 6 weeks to teach and put on the programs for Texas Public Schools Week. It will be very important for her to have the lab kids at TLC to teach the songs because this will be the ONLY time they can become familiar with them. Also, Tutoring pull-outs during this first six weeks during music time should be avoided. Since she only see them twice a week it is very difficult for them to learn the songs up to performance level if they are not present.
