LVJHS Weekly Bulletin 5/9/2016

Dear LVJHS Family,

Last week, we celebrated teacher appreciation week on our campus. One thing is for sure: Our teachers are appreciated! We had special surprises everyday of the week to celebrate our staff. I would like to thank our central office team, PTO, and McGarrel Othodontics for providing our staff with breakfasts and lunch last week. Also, we celebrated our students and your efforts to prepare them for STAAR Testing at our Pep Rally. Multiple students told me they really enjoyed the Pep Rally and appreciated the experience. Most importantly, it was awesome to see our staff provide a message of belief and support for our students. Without a doubt, the week ahead is full of opportunity to excel, and our students will excel because our staff excels at providing quality instruction in a loving manner.


Thank you for all you do to make La Vernia Junior High School a great place for students!

Staff Spotlight: Mrs. Cornal!

We would like to honor Mrs. Cornali as Teacher of the Week! As we approach the end of the school year, Mrs. Cornali continues to push in exciting and meaningful lessons with her students. She continues to motivate her students through exciting books, lessons, and even a bet with her students which involved her sporting green hair for a week! Additionally, Mrs. Cornali brings positive energy, wonderful teamwork skills, and great leadership to our campus. Thank you for all that you do Mrs. Cornali!

Fundamental Five Focus...

Recognizing and reinforcing at any level will motivate our students to be more successful. The more at risk the student the more important reinforcing positive behavior and academic success becomes. Recognize the effort by personalizing the praise and using the student’s name.
