National Merit Semifinalists Recognized by CISD Trustees

The Conroe ISD Board of Trustees gave special recognition to the 2017-2018 Conroe ISD National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists Recipients at its meeting on Nov. 14.

The National Merit Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. High school 11th grade students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Prelim­inary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT), a test which serves as an initial screening of approximately 1.5 million entrants representing roughly 22,000 high schools. Around 50,000 students with the highest PSAT/NMSQT Selection Index scores qualify for recognition in the National Merit Schol­ar­ship Program. Of the 50,000 recognized students, about 16,000 students are notified that they have qualified as Semifinalists each September. To ensure that academically able young people from all parts of the United States are included in this talent pool, semifinalists are designated on a state representational basis. They are the highest scoring entrants in each state. In February, approximately 15,000 semifinalists will be notified by mail that they have advanced to Finalist level.

Conroe ISD Semifinalists in the National Merit Scholarship Program are:

TWCA Students Enjoy Field Trip to Local Farm

The Woodlands Christian Academy (TWCA) prekindergarten students traveled to P-6 Farms in Montgomery.  The students enjoyed a variety of learning experiences on the farm including a hayride, observing pumpkins growing and a huge corn maze. Students also learned about farming and all the equipment required to keep the farm running smoothly.

The trip to P-6 Farms is one of several field trips students will participate in throughout school year. Traveling beyond the walls of the school for opportunities that make classroom lessons relevant, meaningful and memorable, is an important part of a Warrior education.
