Excellence In All We Do - Back To School Edition

Welcome Back!

I hope that everyone has had a great summer, and are looking forward to getting back to school. For our new families, my name is Eric Holt, and I am entering my fourth year as Principal of Lago Vista Middle School. It is truly an honor to be in this position, and our staff looks forward to making this year an excellent experience for our students.


I wanted to send this short newsletter to answer questions about the new year - more detailed information will come out closer to the beginning of the year - but this will help.

Meet The Teacher Night

We are looking forward to meeting our students on Monday, but to lessen the size of the crowd at Meet The Teacher night, we had to make a few changes to the hours.


We are asking parents to follow this schedule(if possible):


4:30 - 5:30; 6th, 7th and 8th Grade Parents, Last Names A - H

5:30 - 6:30; 6th, 7th and 8th Grade Parents, Last Names I - Q

6:30 - 7:30; 6th, 7th and 8th Grade Parents, Last Names R - Z


There will be New Family Orientations at 4:30, 5:30 and 6:30 in the cafeteria. Everyone is invited to join this meeting, but if you're comfortable with the way things work, you can go right to your teachers. We will be discussing procedures(who doesn't love procedures?), pick up/drop off, cell phone policy(NO phones), and the construction timeline.


6th Grade schedules will be handed out in the cafeteria.


7th and 8th Grade schedules will be handed out in the upper gym.


For boy's Athletics questions, please see Coach Jackson, and for Girl's Athletics questions, please see Coach Karg.


We will have staff and students throughout the parking lot and school to help you find where you need to go. Because of construction, parking is going to be a challenge, so be prepared to use the baseball field parking lot across the street.

Here is the bell schedule for next year...first bell starts at 8:00 AM!

I did get to do a little relaxing this summer - here's my family and I scuba diving off the coast of Mexico. My wife and boys saw a shark and a barracuda, but I missed both of them!!
