Teacher Appreciation Week

Parents/Guardians.


We will be celebrating our teachers and paraprofessionals during the week of May 21 (the last week of school). Each day of that week we will be doing something to show our teachers that we appreciate them, and I want to encourage you and your child to consider how you might like to thank the teachers that serve you! A simple, kind note of appreciation can really inspire a teacher's day! Recording a sweet message that can be replayed as needed might keep a teacher's day trending positive when it threatens to get them down!


The possibilities are endless, and they don't have to cost any money! Thank you for considering how you might brighten a teacher's experience so they can continue to brighten yours!

Wondering What Happened to Your Child's Lunchbox?

We probably have it; and their shoes; and their sweatshirts; and their coats; and their water bottles; and their backpacks.....Please have your children look through the lost and found at LVMS for items you know they wore/brought to school, but have never seen again. Lunch boxes and water bottles will be in the cafeteria by the microwaves. Clothing and all other items will be in the atrium area just off outside of the front office. We will be coordinating with clothing closets to receive our unclaimed clothing items very soon!

Social Media Support

Lago Vista ISD recognizes that communication between campuses and parents is a crucial part of building a strong school-home partnership, which we greatly value. As such, the District is committed to providing open, two-way communication and encourages all Lago Vista ISD parents to share the same commitment.


While social media presents us with an amazing venue to share and exchange information, if a concern arises regarding your child, or child’s campus, please contact the campus immediately. This timely communication directly with the campus is a crucial first step in working with you to resolve your concerns. As a district, we are committed to ensuring that all concerns are addressed as quickly as possible, but

campuses are only able to assist with finding solutions when we are made aware of concerns through direct communication.


Thank you for your helping with Lago Vista ISD's continued efforts to build strong and effective partnerships with our parents!
