Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday- Monday, January 19th

We have an extended weekend this week. No classes for all students in LEISD on Monday, January 19th. As you enjoy the three day holiday take a moment to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of Martin Luther King Jr. I am inspired by his words - "The time is ALWAYS right to do what is right."

Think Through Math Madness for students in Grades 3-8

Think Through Math provided state-funded online instruction and practice for all Texas Public School students in grades 3-8. Let's accept the challenge of March Madness from Think Through Math. Go Prestwick Go! (Advance your skills and take our school to the finals.)


Think Through Math is gearing up for the biggest contest of the year – The Think Through March “Math” Madness better known as MX3! It is going to be an epic battle -- school against school -- fighting to be the top Think Through Math school in the nation!!

Qualifying starts Tuesday, January 20 and we will be narrowing contestants down to the Sweet 16 on March 1st. You need to rally all of the Think Through Math classes in your school to log in and pass your math lessons! 4 Schools from each time zone of the THINK Nation (Eastern, Central, Mountain, Pacific) will vie for a spot in the Sweet 16.

Every week we will show the top schools making the moves in the qualifying rounds. Make sure your school has the highest average of passed lessons per active student in your time zone to qualify for the Sweet 16 to be announced on March 1st!

Does your school have what it takes to “Bring On The Madness!!!

Winners not only earn the envy of their peers, but they are recognized on our television screens and earn a day with the Cloak of Awesome!
