Regional Feeder Bee

Out of 24,000 students we had two of our very own Wildcats participate in the LISD Regional Feeder Bee. We had Pilar Whitlock, in fourth grade, come in 22nd place and Angela Pan, in fifth grade, tie for 1st with six other students across the district. On January 19th, Angela Pan will be moving on to our District Bee to compete for a place in the Denton County Spelling Bee. We are so proud of both girls and how hard they’ve worked thus far!

SIP Students Transitioning to Middle School

Dear 5th Grade SIP Families,

We hope this email finds you safe and well. The enrollment season is just around the corner, which includes fifth grade transition to middle school! In order to facilitate this process, below are some important details.


  • This newsletter will communicate to you updated information regarding the middle school transition: https://www.smore.com/1wgqu
  • The newsletter presents a “MS Intent Form”(https://tinyurl.com/AdvMS2021-2022). The form asks you to indicate your intent for middle school so that we can internally process your transfer to the MS Advanced Language Program. The deadline is due February 1, 2021. Decisions can certainly be made after Feb. 1, but families will need to take care of any necessary transfer paperwork after that deadline.
  • The 5th grade parent information meeting (WebEx), was held last night.
