Viking Valor - StayALERT! Recognition

Walker Trudeau and Michelle Ryan with Edwards Risk Management traveled to LVMS to personally recognize Ms. Reighley's Viking Valor class for their Honorable Mention in the StayALERT Spring Promotional Campaign. Each of Ms. Reighley's students had the opportunity to engage in a conversation with Mr. Trudeau an Ms. Ryan about the importance of speaking up and speaking out.

Thank you Mr. Trudeau and Ms. Ryan for making the trip to see the kids and validating their efforts at preventing bullying!

Theatre Skills on Display

All characters were chosen from our show “Shakespeare Goes to Gravel Gulch”. Our main focus was to give an “old age” appearance to the characters. Most characters were outlaws, prospectors, and the older citizens of Gravel Gulch.
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?

We probably have it; and their shoes; and their sweatshirts; and their coats; and their water bottles; and their backpacks.....Please have your children look through the lost and found at LVMS for items you know they wore/brought to school, but have never seen again. Lunch boxes and water bottles will be in the cafeteria by the microwaves. Clothing and all other items will be in the atrium area just off outside of the front office. We will be coordinating with clothing closets to receive our unclaimed clothing items very soon!

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!
