LVJHS Weekly Bulletin 5/15/2016
Dear LVJHS Family,
The end of the year is here! We have two more weeks with our students before the summer break. We have two more weeks, and our eighth grade students will be moving to the high school while we welcome current fifth grade students to our campus. The next two weeks are going to be extremely busy. This week, we have our eighth grade students going on the a field trip to the Holocaust Museum in San Antonio (5/17-18), the PTO Talent Show (5/17), and Student Awards Ceremony (5/19). We have a lot of work ahead of us, but it will be a great honor to celebrate our students while enjoying the end of the year festivities. Additionally, STAAR Testing is completed.
I cannot thank each of you enough for all that you did to make sure our students were prepared for state assessments. The focus and dedication our students demonstrated while testing lets me know we have great things in store. The success of our students is the result of this staff working together throughout the course of the year to prepare our students. Everyone serves a different role, but all of these roles are crucial to make sure our students succeed.
Thank you for all you do to make La Vernia Junior High School a great place for students!
