Mrs. Luna-Lopez and Mrs. Chapa’s second grade classes at GW Primary recently celebrated a combined total of over 4000 Accelerated Reader points and that is one of many reasons the primary was recently recognized as a ‘2008 Just for the Kids Higher Performing School’.  Librarian, Kendra Mergele provided pizza for the two classes as a reward.

Congratulations are in order for students, parents, and staff of the GW Primary. Just for the Kids has selected George West Primary as a ‘2008 Just for the Kids Higher Performing School’ in Texas based on its performance in reading.

The school was selected based on analyses conducted by the National Center for Educational Achievement, sponsor of the Just for the Kids Campaign.

There are two ways to be designated as a 2008 JFTK Higher Performing School in Texas.

First, schools whose students perform better than predicted for schools with similar demographics were included. Second, schools whose student performance was in the top five percent in the state as measured by NCEA’s College and Career Readiness Benchmarks in math, reading, and science, or TEA’s Commended Standard in social studies and writing were highlighted as a 2008 Just for the Kids Higher Performing School.

In addition to this award the Primary was also notified of being named a TEA Title I Distinguished School for the seventh year in a row. The Primary is one of only four campuses in Region II to receive this award.
