TEA shares free summer reading resource

AUSTIN – Commissioner of Education Michael Williams and the Texas Education Agency (TEA) encourage young Texans to continue reading throughout the summer. And to assist in that effort, TEA is sharing Find a Book, Texas, a free summer reading online resource.

Find a Book, Texas is an easy way to select books based on a child’s interests and reading level. A free search tool helps to build custom lists for readers at all ability levels and then locate the selections at local public libraries.

“Reading remains the one skill that can help combat the education summer slide for all students before the new school year,” said Commissioner Williams. “Through Find a Book, Texas, TEA joins with school districts, libraries and other organizations statewide providing resources that stress the importance of reading during the summer months.”

The Find a Book, Texas initiative is shared through MetaMetrics, an educational research organization that develops scientific measures of achievement. Find a Book, Texas utilizes the Lexile measure, which indicates the reading level of an individual or a book. By comparing a child’s Lexile measure with the Lexile measure of a book, a parent has a tool to help determine whether the text is too difficult, too easy or just right for a child’s reading ability.

MetaMetrics provides free online resources in reading and math for a number of states across the country. To learn more about Find a Book, Texas, visit the website at www.Lexile.com/fab/tx.

Erwin - Lee Football Field Memorial

Erwin - Lee Football Field Memorial

Erwin-Lee football stadium at Navarro High School is named in honor of Head Football Coach Ruel Erwin and Ag Teacher Norman Lee. A Go Fund Me Site gofundme.com/wmt8zF78 has been started to raise funds to honor their legacy. These two men died on August 11,1971 while helping the Navarro High School Panthers field their first football team. The fund will be use to pay for a monument in honor of these two men at the football field. Many in the community do not know the history of why the field is named after these men. For more information about the project visit the Erwin - Lee Football Field Memorial Facebook page.

2015-2016 Residency Policy - All Returning Students MUST Prove Residency

Navarro ISD has a strict residency policy, and a limited number of grandfathered tuition transfer students. The district is growing and we are close to outgrowing the Elementary and Intermediate schools. Many core classrooms at the secondary are larger than we would like. Therefore, the Board of Trustees voted to not accept any new transfer families for the 2015- 2016 school year. For this reason, and in order to protect our taxpayers, we are expanding our residency check to include all grade levels.

Senior Parents - ImmTrac - Electronic Immunization Registry

ImmTrac is an electronic immunization registry that your child's vaccinations were reported to by their doctors as they grew up. In order to keep these records available electronically to your child as an adult they will need to fill out the adult consent form that was sent home through theit English class this week. Mail the form in between their 18th and 19th birthday or their record will be deleted from the system. Extra forms are available in the nurse’s office.

Congratulations to the Navarro ISD Teachers of the Year!
