From the Principal

September is here! We have a lot things happening at LSRO this month, so be sure to keep up to date on everything through our campus Remind, the School Way App, our LSRO Facebook page, and our campus Twitter account (@LSROmustangs)! Find the way that's best for you to keep up with everything that's going on at our campus!

Don't forget that our Big Kahuna fundraiser forms and money are due Tuesday, September 6. Please have your child turn everything into his/her homeroom teacher.

Enjoy your 3 day weekend--get some rest and spend time with friends and family!

Your Principal,

Joy Shepherd

2016-2017 Tardies

As our morning arrival traffic flow improves each day, we are going to begin issuing tardies for students that are late. Next week, (8/29-9/2) we will start writing tardies at 8:15, the following week (9/6-9/9) at 8:10, then (9/12-9/16) 8:05, and then finally at 7:55, beginning the week of 9/19. This will give us time to ensure our morning arrival is flowing in a smooth timely manner. Please continue to work to have your student to school at 7:55.

Counselor's Corner

ATTENTION 5TH GRADE PARENTS: 5th grade is a Student Support Initiative (SSI) year. This means 5th and 8th grade students in Texas are required to pass the STAAR math and reading tests in order to be promoted to the next grade. Today your student should bring home a brochure explaining SSI and its importance for your student. The brochure can also be found on the LSRO Counselor webpage under Links!

From our Specials Teachers

Art: Need parenting points? The art room is low on black fine point sharpies, colored pencils, and baby wipes! Attach the student's name and homeroom teacher to the items so that I can make sure you get the volunteer points!
Music: 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th Grade ONLY-We will be using recorder instruments in Music Class this year. Be on the lookout for an order form here in the next couple of weeks to purchase a recorder for this year in Music Class through the school. You may also purchase a recorder through any Music Store or through the website www.MusicK8.com . These will be an investment for your child for their years in elementary school that they will be able to use until they finish 6th grade.
PE: Parents this Friday will be the first home game for the Life School Mustangs Varsity Football team in our new stadium. Please come out and support the team. Game starts at 7:30, I hope to see you there.
Computer: With allergy season upon us, the computer lab could use some supplies to help us stay as healthy as possible. Please feel free to send an item of the following hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, and baby wipes. Please write your students first / last name and their grade level on the items and please specify the items are for the computer lab. I will use that information to make sure your student(s) earn their parenting points for the donation.

From Our School Nurse:

Parents please make sure you are getting the food allergy action plans back to the nurse, for stated food allergies from the doctor. Please contact the nurse if you have any questions.
