The El Paso Independent School District will begin identification procedures for grades 6-8 gifted and talented programs. Any student in grades 6-8 may be nominated by a parent, teacher, or other concerned individual to participate in the screening process. Students will be identified by using a combination of five screening criteria: specific classroom activities, teacher observation log, parent checklist, student grades, and standardized testing measures.


Please pick up an application in the Counselor’s office. If you have any questions, please feel free to talk to Ms. Contreras. We will be accepting nominations until Friday September 22, 2017.  Late applications will not be accepted.


Wiggs Pink Breast Cancer Awareness T-Shirts are currently on sale for $13.00 each. Let’s showcase our hope for a cure by wearing our pink shirts every Friday during the month of October. Shirts will be on sale until September 22, 2017 and you can place your order with Mrs. Soriano or any Humanities teacher on the 2nd floor. We appreciate your support!



Dear Wiggs Parents,

Thank you for a great start to the school year.  Our students have received their laptops and they and the teachers are doing some amazing work with them.  The laptops will keep a charge through the day but need it in the evening. Will you please help us to remind your child to charge the laptop daily and to bring it everyday.  

Thank you for your help,

Wiggs Administration


Estimados padres de Wiggs,

Gracias por un gran comienzo del año escolar. Nuestros estudiantes han recibido sus computadoras portátiles y ellos y los maestros están haciendo trabajo increíble con ellas. Las computadoras mantendrán una carga durante el día, pero se necesitarán cargar por la noche. Por favor ayúdenos y recuerdenles a sus hijos que traigan sus computadoras con carga cada día.

Gracias por su ayuda,
la administración de Wiggs

Diana Gilliland Receives Prestigious Texas Award

Mrs. Gilliland   Mrs. Gilliland


The Texas Orchestra Directors Association (TODA) has recognized our own Mrs. Gilliland as this year's recipient of the Texas Orchestra Director of the Year Award.  Directors across the state of Texas are nominated each year to be considered for this prestigious recognition.  The TODA award committee scrutinizes the applications, letters of recommendation, and the impact the director has on orchestral education in the school, and the impact he/she has in the community.

Mrs. Gilliland is in her 37th year of directing school orchestras and has directed them towards the highest rating in competition.  Her orchestras perform annually for UTEP graduations, Mesita Elementary School, senior citizens homes, and are sought after by various events and organizations in El Paso.  Performing in the El Paso Symphony has been a long part of her life,for 38 years.  Many of her students have continued their craft through their college life. Over the years Mrs. Gilliland has served as a state judge for the Texas Music Educators Association.  Organizing the Vertical Strings and our own Fine Arts concerts benefits our school community, too.    

Mrs. Gilliland joins four other El Paso Orchestra Directors who have received this award since TODA began in 1979.  

Congratulations, Mrs. Gilliland, on being awarded this recognition by your peers across the state.
