GIFTED AND TALENTED NOMINATIONS

Nominations are now open for the Conroe ISD Gifted and Talented program. Although the testing will not take place until February, nominations are accepted at this time. Nominations can be made by the parents and/or teachers. It is recommended that parents of 2nd grade students wait until CogAT scores have arrived before nominating their child because CogAT scores are part of the GT assessment. If you are interested in nominating your child, you may want to discuss this with your child’s teacher. Nominations will be accepted through December 18th. You may request a nomination form from the front office or if you have any questions, please call Veronica Kiesz at 281-298-4700. You can also find more GT information on the CISD GT homepage.

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION EXCITING NEWS

The online system for Box Tops will now allow you to scan your receipt and give credit to your child's class. You must, however, list your child's teacher along with the grade level. Please do not list your child's name on the app, just the teacher and grade level. Don't forget from now until December 31st, you can get double points by turning in the Box Tops and scanning your receipt to the Box Tops app.


Our winter Box Tops collection for the 2019-2020 year is underway. Participation is easy. Simply clip the Box Tops from participating products, place them in a Ziploc bag or envelope (labeled with your child’s teacher’s name and grade), and have your student drop them in the collection bin located near the front office. Please mark your calendar for our winter submission deadline, Friday, February 14, 2020.


If you have any questions, please contact Carly Jones or Jennifer Whitney at DavidPTOvendor@gmail.com. We will list the top two classes per grade level in the newsletter each week. Please note that the following numbers include both clipped Box Tops and on-line scans. Standings as of Friday, November 1st, are:
