From the Principal:

Last week we kicked off our Fall Fundraiser with Big Kahuna! Help your child's class reach their goals and send in your tickets--students can earn "stackimals" for selling items during our fundraiser! Let's work together to make this the best fundraiser yet!

Morning arrival and dismissal are getting better and better everyday! Thank you for your patience and smiles as we moved through changes and improvements to our system.

Don't forget that Monday is a student/staff holiday--Labor Day. Enjoy a three day weekend!

Thanks for all you do to support our students and campus! We appreciate you!

No Cell Phones during Morning Arrival and Dismissal! Let's keep safety first!

Teacher & Staff Member of the Month

To start our year off with one of the best, we are happy to announce that Christen Arroyave is our August Teacher of the Month. Mrs. Arroyave is a member of our 5th grade team and this year has moved from Social Studies to Math. She has been a teacher at Life School for 9 years.

Her and her husband have 3 beautiful children, Annalise, Cadel, and Lyden. Thank you Mrs. Arroyave for being such an amazing leader on campus and for loving our students each day.


Our Staff Member for the month of August is Edward Perry. He is our wonderful IT support here at LSRO. Mr. Perry has hit the ground running at our campus, helping all staff with their tech needs. He is prompt and courteous when addressing needs for all our teachers and staff. Mr. Perry has spent most of his life with Life School, and graduated from Life School Oak Cliff. We are so thankful to have Mr. Perry as a Mustang. Thank you for all you do for us by serving our students and staff each and every day!

Perfect Attendance:

This year we will be having perfect attendance rewards every 6 weeks. For the first 6 weeks we will be having a class reward for all classrooms that 100% of the students are present everyday. The class will cross out the word ATTENDANCE. It should take them 10 days of perfect attendance to receive the reward. The 1st time they cross out the entire word ATTENDANCE they get a free jean day. Coupons will go home to let you know when they may have a FREE jean day. The 2nd time they cross out the entire word ATTENDANCE, they will receive a popsicle/ice cream party. Just wait until you hear what we have planned for the next 6 weeks. We are excited that we get to offer these incentives to the kids every 6 weeks.
