Help us keep the tradition of yearbook alive! In order to do so we must hit our quota of 150 yearbooks sold. We currently have 80 orders. Yearbook is a big fundraiser for PTO. The profit made goes directly back to your kids :) We must hit our quota in order to profit and be able to continue the tradition next year. This year we chose to do online orders to keep the confusion to a minimum.

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!

Hello LVES Families! In our guidance class lessons this month, the character trait topic is Fairness. We are discussing that fairness involves treating people the way they want to be treated, taking turns, telling the truth, and playing by the rules. A fair person thinks about how their actions will affect others. They listen to people with an open mind, they do not blame others for their own mistakes, they do not take advantage of other people, or play favorites. As a parent, it is important to remember that we are role models when it comes to teaching our children about fairness.
“The best index to a person’s character is how he treats people who can’t do him any good--and how he treats people who can’t fight back.” ~Abigail Van Buren
¡Hola familias LVES! En nuestras lecciones de clase de orientación de este mes, el tema del rasgo de carácter es la imparcialidad. Estamos discutiendo que la imparcialidad implica tratar a las personas de la forma en que quieren que se las trate, tomar turnos, decir la verdad y cumplir las reglas. Una persona justa piensa en cómo sus acciones afectarán a los demás. Escuchan a las personas con una mente abierta, no culpan a los demás por sus propios errores, no se aprovechan de otras personas, ni tienen favoritos. Como padre, es importante recordar que somos modelos a seguir cuando se trata de enseñar a nuestros hijos sobre la equidad.
“El mejor índice para el carácter de una persona es cómo trata a las personas que no pueden hacerle ningún bien, y cómo trata a las personas que no pueden defenderse.” ~ Abigail Van Buren
