Board Secretary, Lauren White, Honored by West Cypress Hills Elementary School

Principal Melanie Beninga and the WCHE Tigers honored Mrs. Lauren White for her service to the Lake Travis Independent School District at Assembly Friday, January 10. Mrs. White, a former elementary school teacher and special education teacher, is the Secretary of the Board of Trustees.


To honor her, Kindergarten Roaring Rockets art work was used to create a commemorative presentation certificate, and the Tigers presented her with a copy of the book Roaring Rockets that had been autographed by students, staff, and the President of the PTO. Tigers also donated a copy of Roaring Rockets to the school library in Mrs. White's honor.


Thank you, Mrs. White, for helping to launch our next generation.

Wall of Fame for Shoe Tying! Did anyone learn to tie shoelaces over the holidays?

If your Kinder, 1st Grader, and/or Second Grader can tie his/her shoes, please notify Coaches Mirizzi and Cadorette because they want to honor this accomplishment in the school gym on our WALL OF FAME FOR SHOE TYING!


Once notified of the student's successful shoe-tying accomplishment, we will provide your student with a paper shoe to color, take the student's photo, and then post the photo and customized paper shoe on our WALL OF FAME FOR SHOE TYING!


It's going to be really exciting to see our young Tigers on our WALL OF FAME!

Lake Travis Community Library Comes to Our Neighborhood

The Lake Travis Community Library Bookmobile comes to the West Cypress Neighborhood Pool on alternating Thursdays.
