Little Elm High School

Weekly Newsletter - September 4th, 2015

"INFORMATION" AND "COMMUNICATION"

As Lobos we value open, transparent, and timely communication. As a campus LEHS is looking for more ways to reach out and communicate the great things that are happening in the classroom, on the field, and in our community. We hope you enjoy all of the information in our weekly newsletter but we are also communicating through Facebook and Twitter. Please visit and like our Facebook page by clicking HERE and follow us on Twitter by clicking HERE . One upcoming event that we hope everyone can attend is our fall curriculum night on Tuesday, September 15th from 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM. This will be an opportunity for us to showcase our academic programs. We hope you will come out and see what your students have been learning. Also on this evening our College & Career Advisor will be hosting a senior parent information meeting from 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM in the LEHS auditorium. If you have a senior, this meeting will provide you with critical information about planning for your student’s post-secondary success. In the words of Sydney Harris “The two words information and communication are often used interchangeably, but they signify quite different things. Information is giving out; communication is getting through." We hope our communication whether it is through our website, marquee, phone messenger, email, newsletter, Facebook, or Twitter is getting through. We truly want to partner with you to make LEHS and LEISD “THE Destination District” (and high school).

A metroplex native, Ms. Wallace attended high school in Grapevine and college at both Collin College and the University of North Texas. This is her first year of teaching, however, last year she was a full-time substitute with Keller ISD where she worked with students from 5th grade to 12th grade. Before working in Keller, she was also a substitute with Krum ISD. She loves reading, giraffes, her cat, Greeley, and spending time with loved ones.
