LAST DANCE OF THE YEAR
Theatre Skills on Display
The theatre arts class at LVMS recently learned how to apply make up in a variety of ways. The students had a great time attempting to transform themselves and others! Thank you Ms. Weaver for creating these experiences for our students!
1st pic - Make-up artist was Nicholas Philmon on himself
Character was Banker Boyle
2nd pic - Make-up artist was Andre Valles on his sister
Character was Swindler, an outlaw
3rd pic - Make-up artist was Seseley Hoke on herself
Character was Aunt Edna, an elderly citizen of Gravel Gulch
And of course....
4th pic - Make-up artist was Diego D’Lorm on Mr. Vogler
Character was Little Luisa, an older female, trying to pass herself off as 12 yr old. I think the beard sells it.

Wondering What Happened to Your Child's Lunchbox?
Social Media Support
Lago Vista ISD recognizes that communication between campuses and parents is a crucial part of building a strong school-home partnership, which we greatly value. As such, the District is committed to providing open, two-way communication and encourages all Lago Vista ISD parents to share the same commitment.
While social media presents us with an amazing venue to share and exchange information, if a concern arises regarding your child, or child’s campus, please contact the campus immediately. This timely communication directly with the campus is a crucial first step in working with you to resolve your concerns. As a district, we are committed to ensuring that all concerns are addressed as quickly as possible, but
campuses are only able to assist with finding solutions when we are made aware of concerns through direct communication.
Thank you for your helping with Lago Vista ISD's continued efforts to build strong and effective partnerships with our parents!
