Titan Families,

I hope you enjoyed your winter break with family and friends. Our staff looks forward to welcoming you back today with a huge Titan Welcome!

This month, we launch school board recognition month. In our district, campuses are assigned Board Members to highlight. Trish Bode, Leander ISD Board President, is who our campus will celebrate this month. Trish Bode was elected to the Leander ISD Board of Trustees in May 2015 and recently was re-elected. Ms. Bode received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies and her Master of Arts in Communication Studies from Texas State. Ms. Bode married her high school sweetheart, Bryan Snead, and together they have two children who attend LISD. Their activities have led to Bode’s engagement in multiple organizations and events. Ms. Bode works in corporate communication and enjoys spending her free time with her family and friends and engaging in community activities. If you're looking for a way to further share with your child how the school board impacts our district and campus, here's a video showcasing their role.

January is also a month of goal setting and dreaming big for our campus and each other. We are incredibly thrilled to launch 2023 with you! Throughout the next few weeks, your Titan(s) will engage in discussion around goal setting and reflecting on progress as they embark on NWEA MAP and iStation assessments. We hope your family takes some time to know each other's aspirations and goals in ending this school year well.

Again, welcome back! It's going to be a fantastic semester!

Take care and be well,

Dr. Amy Sharp

Proud RPE Principal
