One Community One School One Book
On Monday, March 28, our school started a special project: an all-school book club called One Community One School One Book. Every family should have received its copy of The Wild Robot by Peter Brown the week of March 21, for Tigers were provided with their family's copy of the book that week during library class.
Families are invited to read our book together at home during the March 28 through April 29 program.
Please click this link to view the reading calendar and to learn more.
Let's have even more fun!
Save the Date - April 21 - for our WCHE Learning Showcase!

Be on the Lookout for LTISD Bus Transportation Updates
One might think that our school bus drivers would be immune to anything and everything that could be thrown their way, BUT, from time to time, LTISD bus drivers do need to take a sick day, and at this time the District is not always able to provide a substitute bus driver quickly enough to cover the route.
As a result, there are times when SMARTTag and/or LTISD will notify parents that bus service could be delayed or that bus service for a particular route is canceled. Even though the disruption to service happens very infrequently, it's still an inconvenience when it happens to you and your Tiger(s.) We apologize.
Please be sure to pay close attention to SMARTTag and/or LTISD transportation alerts and updates so that you will know if/when disruption to your service has occurred.
Reserve your yearbook online @ Balfour or by phone at 1-800-944-5930. The purchase price is $35 plus a $1 handling fee. Pride lines and personalization options are also available for purchase.
