The Importance of Being on Time to School

The occasional unexpected rough morning, traffic, or forgotten lunch box happens to all of us. It’s when these mornings go from occasional and unexpected to frequent and routine that tardiness becomes a problem. When students arrive late to class, it can disrupt the flow of a class discussion, distract other students, and impede on learning. It is important for students to be on time to class everyday.


As a reminder, school starts promptly at 7:45am. If you arrive after 7:45am, please drive your child to the front of the building. Your child will be counted tardy. Our doors are closed and locked in Viking Hall after 7:45am. There is not an adult in the back of the building to let them inside. Thank you for your cooperation with this!

Picture Retakes

Picture retakes are Tuesday, November 2nd. This is for students that were absent or need to retake their pictures. If your child is retaking his/her photo, please bring the original package of pictures to school. If you would like to order photos, please use the link below.

Don't Forget Your Water Bottles

Chief Norman and our local fire department was so kind to donate bottled water to the school at the beginning of the year. We have this water on hand for an emergency or if a student forgets his or her water bottle (especially during the hot months). However, I want to remind everyone to bring a water bottle to school everyday! We want to save our water for emergencies.

October Super Star Awards


On Friday, we celebrated our October Super Stars! Every month, each classroom will have a Super Star and Super Citizen. These awards are based on academics, hard work, effort and outstanding citizenship. The students are recognized for their efforts with a certificate, medal, and lunch with the principal. This month Super Stars and Supers Citizens are Te’A, Lilah, Wesley, Travis, Joseph, Lucas, Eli, Lucy, Haley, Danni, Weldon, Ryker, Enzo, Nathan, Aric, William, Usbaldo, Coen, Kia, Jake, Gracyn, Tyler, Emmanuel, Lennox, and Brooke. Congratulations, our vikings are amazing!

Safety Drills

On Friday, we held a planned lockdown drill that had been scheduled since the beginning of the school year. We have a minimum of one lockdown drill per semester. We practice these drills so that we know what to do and where to go in case there is ever an emergency situation. In class, teachers took time to discuss and answer any questions that students might have had about the drill. As always, if I can answer any questions, do not hesitate to call me at school. Please know that student and staff safety will always be my top priority.

Annual Registration Forms

Families, when you have a moment, please login to your Ascender account and check that your registration forms are updated, complete, and submitted from the beginning of the school year. We will be reaching out to families in the upcoming week that we are missing registration forms from.

This Week's Happenings

Did you know that we had several movie stars, famous athletes, former Presidents, and even Albert Einstein in our building this week? Well, it might not have been the real thing, but it was the next best thing to the actual person.


If you have a child in 4th grade, you may have heard your son or daughter practicing their script for the living wax museum. This week, many of our 4th graders participated in the living wax museum by delivering their "auto-biographies". Their speeches and costumes were incredible! Our students really came alive as their "wax figure."

5th Graders at Work!

This week, 5th graders created some spooky artwork with Ms. Aromy and produced writings on kindness with Ms. Gumbert in guidance class.

Student absence

If your child is going to be absent, please email Lisa Dohm at Lisa_Dohm@lagovista.txed.net. In the email, include the date of the absence and the reason.
