Lago Vista Middle School

8/16/19 Excellence in all we do!

What a great start!

Thank you all for a great start to the 2019-20 school year! It's been a busy three days, but the students have settled in well. Most of them know their schedules by heart, and we have been impressed by the hard work the students have put in so far.


We stressed relationship building for the first few days, and the teachers have done a great job getting to know their students. I've included just a few of the many examples I saw our teachers do this week. Thank you for all of your support - if you ever need anything, just let us know.

Hard Work Starts Early!

The football, volleyball and cross country teams all have started practice this week, and the school is buzzing with activity before 6:00 AM everyday. Great job by our kids, and thank you to our coaches for your efforts!

Student Packets

Your student was given a Student Information packet on Thursday, and we would like them back by Monday(tomorrow). Please take a few moments today and fill that out so we can have those back. If they lost it(shocking!), please make sure they get another one at school tomorrow and get it back ASAP. Thank you!

Extra Labor Day!

Don't forget this year - students get Monday, September 2nd AND Tuesday, September 3rd off. September 2nd is Labor Day, and teachers have training on September 3rd. Enjoy!

Schedule Changes

We have worked through most of the schedule change requests that we have received from students so far. If your student still wants to change their schedule for an academic reason, please have them fill out a schedule change request form in the office and bring it back signed by a parent. Any questions - let us know. However, schedule changes will not be accepted after August 30th.
