Counselor's Corner

School is back in full swing now. When school and workdays are long it can be hard to find the time to spend together. Kids rely on their families for love, guidance, and a sense of belonging. Without these things, it’s hard to do well in school or in life. These simple activities will show your child they are loved and have family support.

Eat meals together. This is one of the best ways for family members to put each other first. Take time to talk about the day and all that time spent apart.

Play board games. Let your child choose the game and play together rather than video games or TV. It gives your child that undivided attention they need.

Stick to a nightly routine. Plan to get them in bed early and read to your child each night. It’s shows your child you care by spending quality time with them.

Plan an outing together. Go to a concert, museum, or sporting event over the weekend. Ask your child what their first choice is and go for it.

Playground Updates from Mrs. Priddy

We have a new addition to the rear playground at Lago Vista Elementary! It is called a Satellite Climber. The possibilities are endless with this structure -- the students can climb, hang, jump and socialize! The body's balance, agility and coordination are all stimulated. There is an abundance of science behind the importance of recess, play and free creative time. We want our playgrounds to complement our student's academic day.


We would like to thank all of our playground sponsors for helping us to acquire this new equipment. In addition to the sponsors named below, we have had countless donations made through our various fundraisers. We appreciate every one of you!!


Your continued support has meant so much and is evident by the changes we have seen over the past few years. Our playground committee continues to plan for the next phase of improvements. Contact us anytime with your ideas or to join us in our quest for fun, safe & creative play.
