Student Placement Profiles
Student Placement Profile forms went home in today's Friday folders. Parent input regarding their child's learning strengths and weaknesses are a crucial part of the data that we review to finalize classes. If you would like to provide information about your child's learning style, please complete the Student Placement Profile form and return to the front office on or before May 10, 2019. Forms will not be accepted after May 10th, as campus administrators use this to finalize class lists over the summer. Please note that specific teacher requests will not be accepted.
Summer School - Mark Your Calendars
If your child receives an invitation to attend summer school, please make sure your child attends all summer school dates. In some cases, promotion to the next grade level depends on successful completion of summer school.

Students will learn more about Integrity in Guidance with Mrs. Sexton!
Hello LVES Families! While discussing our character trait of the month, Integrity, students are learning that one way to show integrity is by helping others in need. We invite you to join students at Lago Vista High School on Saturday, May 4th at the LVHS one-mile cross-country track to walk and support the cause of WE Walk for Water. Every day, women and children around the world spend 200 million hours fetching water, often from sources full of dangerous contaminants. When #WEwalkForWater communities have access to clean water, girls can attend school, parents can run sustainable farms, and families can break the cycle of poverty. In order to raise funds and awareness for this program, the students are asking for a registration fee donation of $5 for students and $10 for adults. A donation of $25 raises enough money to give one person access to clean water for life! Registration begins at 9 am at the football field entry gate. There will be light refreshments and karaoke afterwards! To find out more about this cause, go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALcRLcf8InY&t=2s You may also email Hannah_taylor@lagovista.txed.net for more information.
Thank you for showing your child that there are many ways to show integrity by doing the right thing for others, as well as themselves!

Hola familias de LVES! Mientras discuten nuestro rasgo de carácter del mes, Integridad, los estudiantes están aprendiendo que una manera de mostrar integridad es ayudando a otros en necesidad. Lo invitamos a unirse a los estudiantes de la escuela preparatoria Lago Vista el sábado 4 de mayo en la pista de travesía de una milla de LVHS para caminar y apoyar la causa de WE Walk for Water. Todos los días, mujeres y niños de todo el mundo dedican 200 millones de horas a buscar agua, a menudo de fuentes llenas de contaminantes peligrosos. Cuando las comunidades de #WEwalkForWater tienen acceso a agua potable, las niñas pueden asistir a la escuela, los padres pueden tener fincas sustentables y las familias pueden romper el ciclo de la pobreza. Con el fin de recaudar fondos y crear conciencia para este programa, los estudiantes solicitan una donación de $ 5 para estudiantes y $ 10 para adultos. ¡Una donación de $ 25 recauda dinero suficiente para que una persona tenga acceso a agua potable de por vida! La inscripción comienza a las 9 am en la puerta de entrada al campo de fútbol. ¡Habrá refrescos y karaoke después! Para obtener más información sobre esta causa, visite: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALcRLcf8InY&t=2s También puede enviar un correo electrónico a Hannah_taylor@lagovista.txed.net para obtener más información.
¡Gracias por mostrarle a su hijo que hay muchas maneras de mostrar integridad haciendo lo correcto para los demás, así como para ellos mismos!
“Si puedes, ayuda a los demás; si no puedes hacer eso, al menos no les hagas daño.” ~Dalai Lama
