Building Champions in Academics, Character, and Community

Panther Community

The months of April and May are always hectic, but it is a time that our students shine. In the newsletter below, take some time to read about the many accomplishments of our Career and Technical programs, FFA, Agriculture, UIL competitions, Band, and Winter Guard. In addition, we have track and tennis student-athletes heading to the next level of competition. They are examples of the LHISD Vision statement to Build Champions in Academics, Character, and Community.

As we finish this year out strong, the month of May will hold activities and celebrations that we are excited to have the opportunity to welcome parents back into our schools. Your involvement and participation in the educational process are vital for the success of our school district. Please check with your individual schools on event calendars.

I also want to thank the parents and community who took the time to vote early in our elections. The outcome of the bond proposals plus the school board positions are very important to the future of Liberty Hill ISD. If you have not voted yet, please take time to vote Saturday, May 1st. Information is below.

Have a great day!

Steve Snell, Superintendent

Williamson County Junior Deputy Academy

This summer, the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office is hosting a four-day academy that will give young citizens residing in Williamson County the opportunity to see what it is like to be a county deputy and to learn other unique aspects of Williamson County.

Go to the website for more information and to download the registration paperwork.

During the academy, junior cadets can expect to participate in activities such as interacting with a K9 and its handler, lifting fingerprints, taking a tour of the jail and the old county courthouse, as well as hands-on experience with tactical equipment and so much more.

Friday was one of those nights where everything great about this game and everything gut-wrenching about this game was on full display. Dropped a tough one but so much to learn from.

Liberty Hill tennis had a great showing in our first year of 5A Spring tennis.

We had 3 qualifiers to play at Regionals in San Antonio on Tuesday, April 27-28. They are Ellis Young (2nd place) and Ethan Wukasch/ Patrick Fay (2nd place). We have 4 alternates also traveling to Regionals: Mackenzie Coleman/ Jennifer Merrill (3rd), Sophie Sherman (3rd), and Joseph Sherman (3rd). To win a UIL medal is a big deal. Please congratulate these players when you see them and give them some Panther love.
