Football is Victorious over Corpus Christi Miller

From the Waco Trib:

CORPUS CHRISTI — It took a half, but the La Vega Pirates’ defense made plays when it had to make them.

Only up 21-13 and the Buccaneers driving deep in Pirate territory, Daylen Proctor picked off a Corpus Christi Miller pass, thwarting a scoring drive that would have seen the Miller Buccaneers have a chance to tie. The pick led to a quick Pirate score, putting No. 7 La Vega up two scores and all but putting this one to bed.

It was the first of three picks and one four turnovers forced in the second half as the Pirates cruised to a 48-13 win over Corpus Christi Miller on the road on Saturday afternoon.

What was a quick start for La Vega (3-2) — a three-play, 59-yard drive finished off by running back Nikzayver Rice’s 33-yard jaunt for a score, was turned around by the Bucs.

Quarterback Jaedyn Brown then led Miller (3-2) on a 14-play, 79-yard scoring drive that took almost five minutes off the clock.

The Buccaneers converted two fourth downs to keep the drive alive, the first inside their own 25. Brown found Jaime Jackson on a back shoulder fade to tie things up.

Another quick scoring drive and 72-yard touchdown pass to Mehki Rice put the Pirates back up seven and after freshman Bryson Roland busted one from 70 yards out, the Buccaneers scored at the end of the half to crawl back to within a score.

Congratulations to our Pirates!!!

Cheerleaders Making Academics a Priority

Our cheerleaders are amazing. Wherever we go there are always so many compliments. The way that the group always looks prestine, acts with the highest of character and display an attitude of humbliness and readiness to serve. Behind the scenes these young ladies take care of business too. Our cheerleaders make academics a priority also, Kudos to Coach Rauls and all of the cheerleading group for committing to excellence in all facets of their school world.

Opportunity Culture Corner

Great support is being provided by each of our MCL's. As a campus we are incorporating the model from Get Better Faster. Our MCL's are using this to frame observations and coaching conferences. Thank you to all of the teachers and departments for embracing this movement in order to be the best we can be. I encourage everyone to take some time to observe other classrooms. There are so many great things happening.

ELAR MCL: Samantha Cubbage

Math MCL: Julie Grigsby

Please let your team know if you need anything.



We now have all of our students back on campus. Reset and remind students of expectations. We will enforce dress code, tardies, earbuds and cell phones, however, we ALL need to be consistent. Do not allow students to leave during your class. Do not allow students who are not on your roster to remain in your classroom. Please take your attendance each period. Remember to sweep students out of the building using the side exits and the conclusion of each day.

Please take 3rd Period attendance!!!! This is crucial because of funding.
