    Ms. Stevens,
    Luke was so excited about the CDs you burned for their projects. He was telling me how long it took you-basically your entire Saturday!! Made quite an impression!
    He enjoys your class!!
    Thanks for all you do.  Your hard work and dedication is appreciated by not only by me,  but my very happy-go-lucky 12 year old boy as well!!
    Thanks again,
    Lori Parker

    My mother and I were at IHOP this morning and there was a group of students dressed up so I assumed they were high school students going to UIL.  You could have knocked both of us over with a feather when we found out they were from Polk Middle School.  They were so well behaved and so well mannered.  As a former middle school teacher and a C-FBISD Ambassador it made me proud.  Too often principals get complaints of kids so I wanted to make sure you got this compliment loud and clear!  Peggi Babick, C-FBISD Community Ambassador


      Great to walk into a school with such a pleasant atmosphere! Go Panthers!

    AVID Testimonial
    Growing up, I had always been told I was a smart girl, but I never really knew what I was able to achieve. Then I was introduced to the AVID program. AVID taught me all the organization skills I needed to be a successful student, but it also taught me how to be kind, humble, patient, and determined, in order to succeed in life. AVID truly changed my life, not only by teaching me that I could go to college, but that I was going to college and nothing was going to stop me, not even myself. I have not been in a more cohesive and engaging program since AVID. In AVID the students become a family, helping each other out in school and outside of school on a more personal level. Coach Hyde left his mark in my heart, and I will forever be grateful with him for taking my hand, opening my eyes, and showing me the world and its endless opportunities. All my best memories from middle school include AVID field trips and all the wonderful talks with Coach Hyde and my tutors. AVID is an amazing life-changing program. Not only does it teach kids how to dream big, but how to make those dreams come true.
