Soaring to Success - Welcome to 2023-24

Hello Eagles!

I am honored to be a part of your 5th Grade Graduation Ceremonies this week. I'm excited to congratulate as you finish elementary school! You should be so proud of everything you've achieved.

And now, we are thrilled to be on this journey with you as you start the process of middle school and we can't wait to see you Soar to Success as an Eagle. We hope that you have an amazing summer and we look forward to seeing you at Eagle Camp in August!

Go Eagles!

Mrs. Wendy Sturdevant

Returning Student Enrollment Verification

It’s that time of year when families need to complete enrollment verification for returning students – specifically, students who attended a Leander ISD campus in the 2022–23 school year and plan to return for the 2023–24 school year. By verifying your student’s enrollment for the upcoming year, this helps our team hire enough high-quality staff.

Here’s how!

  • Log onto Home Access Center (HAC).
  • Click on the Registration Icon
  • Click on the Update Enrollment Tab
  • Click on Start

Parents or guardians will need to complete the registration for each student on your HAC account.

For additional information check out our registration access guide. Using the Chrome browser will provide the HAC user the best experience.

Enrollment Verification FAQ

Young Writers Camp

This virtual camp is open to all LISD incoming 6th-12th graders and will help students navigate the writing process with specific strategies and techniques to improve their writing. After experiencing many short bursts of generative writing strategies, students will choose a topic, research/collect, design a text, and publish their writing. Students will also benefit from specific and actionable feedback along the way from multiple readers, from both peers and teachers.

July 17-21


Summer Camps at CRMS & VHS

There are many sports camps offered this summer at CRMS. As well, there are camps at VHS for our middle school students. View Camp Brochures and Register Here
