Coach's Corner

Red Out Day

The PE Department kicked off the 2019 annual Lomax Red Out Event. Students have the opportunity to raise money for the American Heart Association to help fight heart disease. They can donate $5 per Heart Hero animal and try to collect them all. When they collect $25 they will receive the first 5 Heart Hero animals and an AHA Red Out Event shirt. They can wear this shirt to the March 8th Red Out Event and be part of the VIP section. A $5 donation will gain them entrance to the Red Out Event to watch our very own COLT FC indoor soccer game. Please have your child bring their PE teacher donations (cash only) if they are interested in attending this event. Donations will be taken until 8:30 a.m. on Friday, March 8.


Lomax will also have a Red Out memory and honor wall for those students that wish to add the name of a friend or loved one that has been affected by heart disease.

First Game for Colt FC

Last Friday the mighty Lomax COLT FC fought DeZavala to a tough 1-1 draw in our first soccer match. Melvin Santos scored the lone CFC goal in the first half of play. Player of the match has to go to our goalie Jesus Ortiz. He stopped three assaults on our goal in denying scoring attacks. Coach Williams is very proud of the team play and the sportsmanship that the squad displayed in representing Lomax.

Choir Visit to Rice University

Last Saturday, February 16th, the Lomax Advanced choir, Cantare, performed the Star Spangled Banner at the Rice University Baseball Game. They prepared diligently, performed beautifully, and expertly displayed the tradition of excellence that Lomax Middle School Fine Arts has perfected over the years. On top of that, all students did an amazing job of representing the Colt SPIRIT guidelines! We were even invited back next year! We are all so proud of our students!

Weekly Parent Connect

As we near spring, which can be a challenging time for students and parents, it is important that you focus on the skill of Composure and remember to be a S.T.A.R.


Anytime a child is not doing what you would like them to do – focus on these steps:


Noticing: Noticing connects you with the child. Paint a picture of what you see with your words –i.e. LaKesia, you are on the chair.


Breathe: with the child. Be a S.T.A.R.


Teach: Now that you are connected and calm, tell the child what you want them to do. “LaKesia, my job is to keep you safe and what is your job?” Child, “Help keep it safe.” “You’re right. To stay safe in our class/home you have a choice. You can step down with your right foot or your left foot? Which do you choose? You choose your right foot and now you’re sitting!”



*This discussion is based on Becky Bailey’s book: Managing Emotional Mayhem and adapted from Larry Slocum’s School Family Minute.
