Football brings it Home for Homecoming!
BRIAN CROWNOVER Special to the Tribune-Herald Homecoming meant home cooking for the Pirates Friday night at Willie Williams Stadium. Robert Prescott threw for three touchdowns — two to Mekhi Rice — and ran for another as La Vega hammered lowly Alvarado, 56-10, in the Pirates’ last home district game of the season. Following the Pirates’ most important and most impressive win of the season, a 40-28 victory over then seventh-ranked Midlothian Heritage, La Vega (6-3, 3-1) remained in second place in District 5-4A Div. I, firing on all cylinders Friday night. The Pirates scored on each of their first three plays. Prescott carded two of his three touchdown passes — one a 24-yard post with no one around and the other a quick pass that saw the senior scamper 61 yards for a touchdown. A name La Vega fans are familiar with by now, Bryson Roland, ran to the end zone basically untouched from 50 yards out to put La Vega up 21-0 in a blink of an eye. There wasn’t much resistance for the final 27 minutes of the first half from the Indians, as the Pirates scored four more times with relative ease. Prescott hit Nik Sanders down the sidelines and also ran one in shortly after. And to no one’s surprise, Bryson Roland added a 23-yard scamper at the end of the second half. Junior Roderick Ridge jumped in on the scoring action, breaking free from 60 yards out. Ridge ended the game with 78 yards, with Roland adding 90 on the night. The first half wasn’t all offense, though, as the Pirates blocked a punt in the second quarter, setting up Prescott’s short four-yard touchdown. Jasen Brown recovered a fumble on the Indians’ third snap, setting up Rice’s first touchdown grab. 11/5/21, 7:45 AM La Vega dispatches Alvarado, 56-10, to remain second in District 5-4A | High School. Indian quarterback West Conner ran for his life most of his playing time, but did have his moments, completing 12 of his 25 attempts for 149 yards, including connecting with top receiver Preston Ross six times for 88 yards. Alvarado’s only score came after a D’Eddrick Brawley fumble early in the second half was scooped up by defensive tackle Gavin Pocasangre and returned to the La Vega 4, only to see Kameron Webb jog in just a few plays later. Alvarado added a short field goal later in the half. The Pirates can secure second place in district play with a win at Waxahachie Life next Friday night.

Proposed Whatcha Reading Wednesday
I would like to propose an idea. I have been collecting books that are being donated to "La Vega Reads". I would like to promote the giving of books with an opportunity to read them. Since 4th period is a much longer period, I was wondering if we can allow all teachers the opportunity to carve 10-15 minutes every Wednesday for students to read. ("Whatcha Reading Wednesday") The purpose is to provide time where students can enjoy reading. Students who read for fun are often stronger in the classroom in all subjects since they are building skills that most subjects rely on - skills like inferring, evaluating and retelling.
It might be good to promote it as a break from school..... SHOW time. "Silent Hiatus On Wednesdays". 10-15 minutes to set down your phone. Pick up a book, or a sketch pad or a sudoku and take a few minutes to de-stress, relax, unplug. Everyone can participate since the worst case scenario is they lay their head down for a few minutes. The important part is giving them a chance to unplug and reboot. (That is how we fix everything else! Unplug it and then plug it back in)
We can add an incentive piece - earn Pirate Points by telling a teacher or administrator about a book you read for fun, display your artwork on the wires in the 300 hall or complete a level 2 or 3 sudoku in one SHOW time.
We can draw names at the end of each month for prizes (chips? snacks?). If we just call it Pirate Points, we can also give them out for rewarding kids for random acts of doing good. (no referrals, improved attendance, helping someone, whatever...
I'd like to roll my cart of "La Vega Reads" books to the entrance of the cafeteria on the first Tuesday of the month during each lunch period. I don't want to commit to more than once a month because it eats into my MCL time. I am hoping that if my book supply dwindles, it will encourage more supporters to donate. It is also an opportunity to promote the books available in the library. I am also open to students running the cart.
Since I will be in Houston the first Tuesday in November, I am hoping to have the first book give-a-way on Tuesday, October 26. We could start the "Whatcha Reading Wednesday" or "SHOW time" 10/27 or 11/3. (or whenever we are ready to start it)
Can you please fill out any referrals for Angel Tree (Bellmead PD) for kids in need for Christmas:
The Police Department each year request names of children from the school counselors who the deem would greatly appreciate the gifts. We anonymously place angel ornaments on a Christmas tree in the department lobby. All wanting to participate and make donations are invited to select an angel and bring donated toys and other gifts. The officers will then deliver the gifts to the children (ages 16 or younger)
