Hello Sloan Creek Families!
Happy Cinco De Mayo. What a great week we have had! I am so proud of all of our students for finishing STAAR testing strong.
Also, you will see that our school marshall, Jorge, received his SWAT badge. We are so thankful to have him at Sloan Creek. He goes above and beyond his duties and is such a positive leader at our campus.
As we near the end of the year, we have a lot of fun coming up for our students. We have kickball tournaments, tug of war competitions, and of course our field day. We also have dress up days coming up. See below for more information so you can prepare if you wish to.
I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend. Please reach out if you have any questions or need clarification on any upcoming events. We know May is BUSY and we are here to help!

Attendance continues to be a top priority for Lovejoy ISD. It should come as no surprise that attendance has a direct relationship with student learning. Additionally, public school funding is provided by the State of Texas based on each district's average daily attendance (ADA).
Lovejoy has developed an Attendance Task Force consisting of staff, parents, and students to formulate ideas about how to positively impact ADA in our district. One suggestion is to update the community via weekly principal communication on the number of absences each campus has accrued YTD along with the budgetary impact of those absences.
If you haven't already, please complete our Intent to Return to Lovejoy ISD form, this information will help plan for a successful school year and prepare for adequate staffing. The form can be found here.
We are looking for responses from all Lovejoy ISD families.
Thank you for your help and support. It’s great to be a Leopard!
