Lively Middle School
May 27, 2022
Greetings Falcon Nation,
Thank you for a wonderful last day of school! Students, teachers, and parents helped to create a memorable moment today and it was nothing short of incredible. I enjoyed seeing our students and teachers have fun. A very special thank you to our Lively PTSA and parent volunteers who helped clean-up, monitor students, and serve snacks. Your continued support is why Lively is a great place to be! It takes a village, and I am forever grateful and honored to walk alongside you as we teach our students together!

Yearbooks are $30.00 and we can accept cash or check from families when they pick up their yearbooks. Once the yearbooks have arrived, we will notify the families that ordered them. The pick-up time and location will be shared once the yearbooks are delivered.
Students who need to attend summer school will be notified as soon as all grades are finalized. Families will receive a school messenger message with summer school information. Students who are doing the early start of summer school for attendance received information by school messenger and in their folders from the last day of school.

Magnet Summer Projects
Magnet Summer Projects for each grade level will be posted in the Magnet Program section of our school website by Tuesday, May 31st. Please go to the link below to find your student’s summer project. If you have any questions over the summer, please contact Ms. Northcutt for help at email@example.com. We are excited about this year’s summer projects, which will give students choice and engaging work to keep their skills sharp over the summer. Students will turn in their summer projects to their English Language Arts teacher the first week of the 2022-2023 School Year.
You will find the summer projects on this part of our school website: https://lively.austinschools.org/our-programs/magnet/summer-project
This last week of school students reflected on their year through a variety of different activities such as Rose, Bud, Thorn and our last circle time.
Civic Engagement Capstone Fair
Thanks to all of our students who presented their Civic Engagement Capstone Projects this Tuesday at our Capstone Fair. We had many parents and classes come to the fair and received so many great comments about our student’s work! Special thanks goes to Ms. Mau, Ms. Reavis, and Ms. Tipton for supporting our students in their work. After the fair, our Capstone Scholars enjoyed a trip to the park where we enjoyed the beautiful day! Check out some pictures from the Capstone Fair below. Lively Falcons are truly limitless!
