• Welcome to the Gifted and Talented Program at Meridiana Elementary. I am excited about working with your child this year! The emphasis in Meridiana’s GT Program will be on divergent thinking, logic, problem solving, leadership, social skills, communication skills, and refining our research skills using IIM (Independent Investigation Method).


    Helping students become independent learners is a challenging task. Parents can help by discussing assignments listed on the GT assignment sheet and by providing encouragement to finish assignments independently and on time. GT folders should be brought to class each week.  If your child occasionally experiences difficulty with an assignment, remind him/her to put those problem-solving skills to work!


    I am looking forward to a great year of mental stimulation and exciting activities.  Please call 281.245.3636 or email me at jhurst@alvinisd.net  if you have any questions.
