Recently, we learned that Verizon will be charging Remind a new fee that makes it impossible for them to continue supporting free text messaging for anyone who has Verizon Wireless as their phone carrier. Beginning January 28, 2019, you will no longer receive text messages if you have Verizon Wireless as your phone carrier. To continue receiving Remind notifications for teachers, please download the mobile app, https://www.remind.com/apps/, or enable email notification, https://help.remind.com/hc/en-us/articles/206430755-How-do-I-change-my-message-notifications-. Remind will continue to work to find a way to receive text.

Each year, Duke TIP identifies a group of academically talented students in the United States based on their exceptional grade-level standardized test scores. Only those who score at or above the 95th percentile qualify. Those students are invited to participate in the 7th Grade Talent Search and to take the ACT or SAT, which are designed for college-bound eleventh and twelfth graders. Taking an above-grade-level test is an experience that allows these gifted seventh graders to more accurately gauge their academic abilities and potential, as they need more advanced examinations than they find in their grade level. Participants in the 7th Grade Talent Search also receive a variety of support services and gain access to research and other information about using their academic abilities more effectively. The following students have been invited to join the Duke University Talent Identification Program’s prestigious 7th Grade Talent Search. Elizabeth Allison, Katherine Andreae, James Auvil, Michael Christopoulos, John Copus, Richard Davis, Savannah Day, Peter Dimler, Hadley Ekonen, Kaylee Rose Elrod, Alex Georgia, Elliott Greene, Ruth Gregory, Hannah Harbison, Alec Heslop, Joel Himes, Drennan Jones, Tyler Maronge, Elizabeth Morris, Ava Njoroge, Addison Olive, Sarah Partain, Shaylan Patel, Chaney Peters, Beck Petersen, Mia Sellers, Cody Serena, Abigail Wideman, Meredith Willingham, Ramsey Wilson.
