Parent Nomination for Gifted/Talented at Stafford Elementary is underway

Image:

Italy ISD offers services to gifted and talented students in a variety of formats. If your student is not currently identified as gifted and talented, and you believe that your child shows these tendencies, then you may nominate him/her for the screening process which is divided into three elements: standardized test of mental ability, teacher judgment based on observation and characteristics, and standardized achievement test scores (if available).

Stafford students lend a helping hand

Middle Row (L-R): Noah Johnson, Sadie Hines, Nathan Sandoval, Hailey Mathers, Hannah Carr, Chase Hyles
Back Row (L-R):  Ryan Dabney, Taner Chambers, Matty Dickerson, Kimmy Hooker, Bryant Haake, Mrs. Jeanette Janek

Imagine, if you will, a giant warehouse filled with pallets holding huge boxes of all kinds of food products. And again imagine standing in front of this sea of boxes and your job is to sort every bit of it. You would think this would be overwhelming right? But not to our Stafford students!

IHS senior gives back

Recently, Corl McCarthy, an IHS senior gave her time and artistic talent to paint Stafford Elementary Library’s new announcement board. Corl remembers being a Stafford Tiger and enjoying her trips to the library. As an upper elementary student, she even assisted Mrs. Burkhalter with shelving and other occasional jobs. When asked to paint a fun border for the announcement board, she agreed to the task.

With help she made a difference

Madison Dickerson is a very vibrant fifth grader that attends Stafford Elementary. She is smart, pretty, but best of all she has a very compassionate and giving heart. When she heard that April Mathers (1st grade teacher) had cancer and beat it through treatments, Madison wanted to help everyone beat cancer. So, she came up with a way to raise money for St. Jude Hospital.
