LVIS Family Newsletter

October 15, 2021

Last week, we kicked off the 2nd nine weeks of school. You should receive report cards in the mail this week. Our teachers have been busy meeting with families. If you have not met with your child’s teacher, please reach out to him or her to schedule a conference. The purpose of these conferences is to discuss strengths, areas of growth, and assessment data. Finally, just a reminder that this Friday is Early Release. Dismissal is at 11:35. Students will have lunch at school before dismissal.

Project Vinatta

Lago Vista Intermediate School is a designated No Place for Hate School which is awarded by the Austin Chapter of the National Anti-Defamation League. The goals of NPFH, or Project Vinatta as we call it at LVIS, is to create a welcoming community committed to stopping all forms of bias and bullying. Project Vinatta helps to foster a culture of respect and create a safe, bully-free learning environment for students. We strive for harmony and respect for all!

Each year, LVIS forms a student coalition group that plans and implements three school-wide activities. This year, we will create another coalition.

Students interested in joining Project Vinatta should:

■ Be interested in promoting a positive, respectful, bully-free environment/culture at LVIS

■ Be willing to meet during 7:00-7:45 (once a month) and occasionally part of recess to discuss and plan our school-wide activities

■ Be willing to contribute time and talents to our coalition

If your child is interested, please have them see the sponsors, Ms. Gumbert or Mrs. Tilotta, for an application.

Integrating Science and Technology

STEM in Action at LVIS

STEM engages students and equips them with critical thinking, problem solving, creative and collaborative skills. STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in specific disciplines - science, technology, engineering, and math. This is all done while providing hands-on and relevant learning experiences for students.
