Lago Vista High School is in the process of forming a SADD task force!

SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) is a collaborative group of parents, teachers, and students that will help plan substance abuse prevention, education, awareness activities for Lago Vista High School. Our goal is to help Lago Vista High School students become role models in our school and community by helping each other take a strong stand against the destructive decision to use drugs and alcohol. If you would like to be part of this planning process, please contact Heather_Stoner@lagovista.txed.net or Craten_Phillips@lagovista.txed.net for more information. Meetings will begin in early February.

Student Holiday on Monday, January 18, 2015! No school on that day!

UIL Academic Season in Full Swing!

Students on our academic teams can participate at the Round Rock tournament on January 30 or at Westwood on February 20. Please encourage your student to contact UIL Coordinator Missy_Howard@lagovista.txed.net or their UIL coach if they are interested in participating.

Senior Parents - Be sure to read this!!

Good Morning Senior Parent,


Happy New Year! We are off to a flying start here at LVHS and the yearbook team is working hard to preserve precious memories!!


Senior memories page:

If you have any pictures of your senior in a group with senior friends any time in their Lago life and you would like to share them in the yearbook please submit those to lvhsyb@gmail.com. We will be submitting that page by the end of January!!


Don't forget to buy your yearbook:

We are still selling yearbooks! We will sell them until we run out... Go to yearbooks.biz and use order number 6814 or send a check payable to LVHS to Mrs. Holt at the high school. The price is $50.


We still have senior ad space available:

Traditionally, we sell ad space in the back of the book that honors your senior. You can purchase a half page ad or a full page ad and send in pictures, memories, a note, etc. Our team will create a wonderful ad that you can be proud of. If you would like to create your own ad and just send it in to us, that works, too! This is all optional and will only be available until ad space fills up!


Half page ad : $80


Full page ad : $150



These funds help support our yearbook and keep prices of the book as low as possible. Send photos and message to lvhsyb@gmail.com. Further questions? Email Mrs. Holt at rebecca_holt@lagovista.txed.net.

Good Luck to our LVHS Competitive Cheerleading Team! They will compete at the UIL Spirit State Championships on Wednesday, January 13. Come see them perform at halftime of the boys' basketball game on Tuesday night!

News from Our Counselor, Cindy Slaughter!


Parenting Teens with Love & Logic” by Foster Cline and Jim Fay is an awesome book for parents dealing with the challenges of raising teenagers in today’s society. I am hosting a Book Club in January and this will be our book. We will meet for four Mondays beginning January 11th to discuss topics such as peer pressure, drugs & alcohol, setting boundaries, making responsible decisions, and many more topics! We will focus on the tools teenagers need to face the choices of today’s world. Please let me know if you are interested in attending and I will order the book for you, or you can purchase on your own ($12.63 on Amazon). Raising teenagers can be so overwhelming at times! Our kids can drain every ounce of our energy and every second of our day … let’s tackle the challenges together. Hope to see you on Monday, January 11, at 7:00pm in the MAC (Media Center).

Thanks to all LVHS Vikings who participated in December’s Door Decorating Contest. The theme was “Caring” and the doors were fabulous!! Congratulations to Ms. Mumme’s 6th Period Statistics class for their ingenuity and mathematical interpretation.

Our character trait for January is “Citizenship”. LVHS will focus on “Digital Citizenship”. Mr. Randy Mathisen, Directory of Instructional Technology, will be sharing information with students and teachers to help promote ethical and safe behavior in our digital world.


Ø! Our Annual Financial Aid Workshop is scheduled for Monday, January 25, 6:00pm – 7:30pm in the MAC.
