5th Grade Parent Middle School Speaker - Jan 20 (6:30pm)

PTA has scheduled JoAnn Schauf to come speak to 5th grade parents about Middle School and the transition to expect. Mrs. Schauf was a counselor at Arbor Creek Middle School for 10 years. It will be an informative night as we begin to get your kids registered for their classes for next year.

Talent Show Auditions
We are looking for Homestead students with lots of fun talent to show off! Performing numbers can range from a variety of singing, dancing, acting, playing an instrument or showing off a unique talent. Performances (lyrics and costumes, specifically) must be appropriate for young students.


*** Important Notes: 1) Each student will only be allowed to audition for one number. 2) Each student's act MUST be 2 minutes or less. No exceptions.

You must have your parent's permission to sign up at:

If you don't like to perform, but you want to help with the show, we are looking for help with curtains, props, lights, organizing performers, and basically helping to make a great show! If interested in being a stage hand, send Mrs. Beck an email. She will give top priority to 5th graders for these limited spots.

iPad / 1:X Update - Plan to Send Home by End of January

Lewisville ISD remains committed to providing digital access for student learning. This commitment includes the continued effort to launch an LISD Elementary App Store for elementary students participating in the district’s 1:X initiative.

The LISD Elementary App Store has been launched and the district is continually adding instructional apps to the store on a daily basis. LISD believes its ongoing testing is almost complete and the district intends to begin sending iPads home with students by the end of January.

In addition, any elementary 1:X families, who paid the $40 iPad insurance fee for the 2015-2016 school year, will not have to pay the fee for the 2016-2017 school year. Please know that this also applies to 5th grade students moving up to 6th grade.

We appreciate your patience this semester. If you have any questions, please contact LISD’s Helpdesk at helpdesk@lisd.net or call 972-350-1833 and select option 1 to be directed to the district’s Technical Helpdesk.

For more information about LISD’s Elementary App Store, please visit the 1:X webpage, which can be accessed from LISD’s website: http://lisd.net/Page/9750.
