Let's Hear the Roar

Week of April 20th

Note from the LCHS Admin Team

Good Evening Lion Family,

We hope everyone is doing well today! With Governor Abbott's message Friday, we will not be returning to campus for school this year, but will continue with our remote learning plan. We know there are a lot of questions regarding senior activities, items left at school, purchased items that haven't been delivered, etc. Please know that we will take care of all of these things, but it will all take place in due time. We will communicate with you later a plan for senior activities and a plan to allow items to be retrieved from school. Again, this will not be immediate, but we will make sure everyone is able to get their items.

The parent view on Ascender Parent Portal (gradebook) should be opening up this week. You will be able to see you child's average for the 4th grading cycle. Just a reminder, remote learning grades will be Incomplete (I) or Progress Evident (PE) and these will not be entered into the Ascender gradebook.

Teachers, students, parents, and our community came together and worked on creating the culture of what we have at LCHS today- love our kids; create a safe, friendly and consistent learning environment; and a challenging curriculum preparing students for what is next. It is this attitude and mentality of working together that will continue to get us through this next month.

Thank you for your continued support of LCHS and Montgomery ISD!

Students Making an Impact - Beyond the Classroom

Grief. It’s a really complex thing. There is no manual on your feelings or how to react. Nothing to help guide you. I lost my dad six months ago so I know all about it. Grief is everywhere. But isn’t it weird how seemingly no one knows how to react to someone grieving? It is almost like their brain shuts down and they become awkward. I would like to change this. I have created a YouTube channel dedicated to grief in itself. I want to help guide people through their grief by making videos on different topics of grief. I believe people should be running towards grief and helping instead of away just because they don’t know. Help me in my journey of losing my dad and finding myself; maybe I can help you too.

Good grief.

Students Making an Impact, continued...

Patrick Coleman, a freshman at Lake Creek H.S., discovered there was a need for PPE (personal protective equipment) for nurses at Ocean Medical Center in Brick, New Jersey. His Aunt, Cindy Phillips, showed him a picture of the PPE the hospital needs and realized he had recently seen a video on how to make this type of face shield with his 3D printer. Although it takes five hours to produce two of these shields, Patrick began production and quickly began donating to various medical facilities. To say we at Lake Creek are proud of Patrick is an understatement. Some of the facilities who have benefited from his acts of service are:

- 13 shields to Ocean Medical Center in Brick, New Jersey

"My nephew Patrick Coleman made these shields for us to keep us safe. We are so thankful! We love you, Buddy. They are really light and comfortable. Everyone loves them. Their masks even hook on to give relief to their ears. What an amazing person you are.” -Cindy Phillips, nurse and Patrick’s aunt

- 10 Shields to Long Term Health Care Facility in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

"I received the face shields and they are great especially because they are so easy to wipe down and reuse. They do not have the foam across forehead which is a great cause that makes you super-hot, producing sweat and no one else would want to use." -Marie Gallagher, nurse and administrator

- Three to nurses at a local small office

"Thank you both so much for the blessing of the masks. As a small local agency we just don't have the buying power as larger agencies. Our orders are small and have been denied. This will mean the world to my staff nurses. It's been a little scary not having the PPE we need!

GOD bless you both and stay safe!" - Darla Miller & Home Care Select Home Health

- Six to St. Luke's in The Woodlands

- Two to ICU nurses at Memorial Hermann and another hospital in Kingwood

- Two to ER nurses at a hospital downtown

- One to a friend whose mom has to travel back to Mexico and was nervous to travel unprotected

- Three to friends who have to take care of elderly family members

- One to Patrick's Uncle, who works at Amazon in New Jersey and needs protection

Patrick Coleman and his family will continue to make PPEs for anyone who is in need. All shields have been donated thus far and they will continue donating them to anyone in the health field who needs protection.

A Note from FFA

This year has been a whirlwind of emotions for our Lake Creek FFA Livestock Exhibitors. As with all of the other events & activities, the hard work our students put into their livestock came to a complete halt just days and weeks before their last two fairs. We hoped the shows would be rescheduled but when that could not happen, our amazing FFA Booster Club stepped in big to help all of our livestock exhibitors who needed it! We got a list together of almost 30 students who needed help getting rid of the projects they have worked all year on, and went to work getting buyers and donors. In just a week or so they had raised enough money to split between all of the students- $3000 for all 11 steers, $1000 for all 8 lambs, 4 goats, 4 pigs and $500 for one pen of chickens! This money doesn't completely pay for a new project for next year, but it can give these students a start to buying one, or for our seniors, it can help with college funds! As is everyone else, we are devastated our students didn't get to show off the projects they worked so hard on, but we do not walk away with our head held low. We learned that hard work and dedication doesn't always get to be shown off and that we can take and learn from in the coming years in almost every aspect of life. We are so proud of all of our exhibitors, and we will truly miss our seniors who didn't get to step in that show ring one last time. Our ag teachers miss each and every one of our students, and can't wait for things to go back to "normal" again! Enjoy our pictures from some of our senior FFA members showing off their projects!

A Note from ACADEC

In our 2nd year as a program, Lake Creek High School’s Academic Decathlon team placed 1st in the region for 5A schools and participated in the state tournament held in Frisco, TX. The countless hours spent in preparation did not go unrewarded as students took home 38 individual medals and clinched their first trip to the state tournament.

Each team consists of three sub-teams/divisions; Honors, Scholastic, and Varsity. Each of those teams may field up to 3 students in each of the divisions. Over the course of two days, students take tests in seven different disciplines, write an essay, give a prepared and an impromptu speech, and participate in an interview. The whole academic student is on display during this event. The U.S. Academic Decathlon’s overall curricular theme for 2019–2020 was In Sickness and in Health: An Exploration of Illness and Wellness. Following is some general information on the topics in each of the subject areas.

  • SCIENCE: The science topic was an introduction to the biology of cancer.
  • LITERATURE: The literature curriculum included critical reading, one long work of literature, and selected shorter works. The long work of literature was the 1818 version of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
  • ART: The art curriculum included a section on art fundamentals and largely focused on an exploration of illness and wellness in art.
  • MUSIC: The music curriculum introduced students to various musical works from across the centuries that allowed them to examine the role of mortality in Western art music.
  • SOCIAL SCIENCE: The social science curriculum introduced students to the history of healthcare.
  • ECONOMICS: The economics curriculum covered fundamental economic concepts, microeconomics, and macroeconomics and also included a thematic section on health economics.
  • MATHEMATICS: The mathematics curriculum covered algebra and trigonometry.
