LCMS Weekly Newsletter

By Tami Gunset


Leading every successful crew is a dedicated captain, and how lucky we are to have seven of the most devoted, tireless, committed captains serving on our Board! This Board Appreciation Month, LCISD campuses thank these very special Pirates for the extraordinary job they do!


I hope you had a great weekend. I am needing some feedback from our LCMS families. Our campus will be participating in a Winter 2021 ESF Diagnostic look into our campus and ways to radically improve student outcomes.

The ESF Diagnostic survey will serve as a critical component of the overarching ESF Diagnostic process. The survey will:

* Include the critical perspective of key stakeholders in the ESF Diagnostic process.

* Provide clear and valid data from stakeholders perspective to support campus reflection on their current practices relative to the Six Essential Actions.

* Make the diagnostic process even more effective by using survey data to signal areas for deeper exploration and analysis.

Family Link:

Step 1: Visit the appropriate link above

Step 2: Select your campus from the list - Middle School (Lubbock-CooperISD)

Step 3: Click "Take This Survey"

Step 4: Complete the Survey

Step 5: Select a language

Step 6: Answer the survey questions

Step 7: Click "Submit"

*** Surveys MUST be completed in one sitting. Responses will not be saved if survey-takers leave the page before clicking "SUBMIT."

All responses are completely anonymous; no one will be able to tie your responses back to you.

Helping students do their best in school requires a team effort and I truly appreciate you taking the time to complete the survey.

*** If we have 80% of our families complete the survey, we will reward the student body with a special treat. Help us reach our goal of 80%!

If your child plays on the "A" team, please sign up for a time when the "B" team is playing. If your child plays on the "B" team, please sign up for a time when the "A" team is playing. You are allowed to attend the game if you are helping in the concession stand.
