TESTING DATES

Parents/Guardians,


We of course want to see your child in school everyday, but we recognize they will miss for a variety of reasons related to their lives outside of school. We've included the Spring testing calendar that you may use as you plan your respective families events for the semester.

PARENT TEACHER ORGANIZATION (PTO)

Teacher appreciation luncheon update:

January’s Chili Cook-off was a success and fun for the teachers. All the entries were D-Lish!!


Our winners were:

1st. Tammy Mckinney

2nd. Reannon Moreland

3rd. Tami Carlton


We will finish out the year with Four more hospitality luncheons. I cannot even express to you how sincerely thankful our teachers are. Some teacher comments have been, “ I just want to tell you that I look forward to this all month!” & “ PTO lunches make me feel human because it’s the only time I don’t eat at my desk!” PTO gets the credit but of course, we couldn’t do it without all of you.

Thank you to all of those who help make this happen. If you haven’t had opportunity to help out, now is your chance.

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!

PROJECT VINATTA

LVMS is proud to present Project Vinátta, our very first "No Place for Hate" student-led, anti-hate/anti-bullying coalition. It's called Project Vinátta, for that's the Viking word for friendship. Students participating in Project Vinátta will be conducting a variety of inclusive, anti-hate activities within the school and community throughout the year. Students had the opportunity to fill out an application to explain why they would be an asset to the group. The Project Vinátta Coalition will begin developing activities this week during Skolar time.


Any parents who might be interested in serving as the parent representative on our Project Vinátta Coalition, please refer to the application and video link below.

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!
