Donuts with Doc

Big picture
We invite you this Wednesday, October 2, at 8:30 a.m. to Donuts with Doc, and hear to from Catrina Mitchell about the dangers that social media interactions pose to our youth. This is a great opportunity to learn about parenting in the digital world. We cannot avoid being online, and restricting the use of devices to adults-only hinders the academic progress of our students. This presentation will help you learn about the risks of online access and how to prevent them.

Lipscomb Fiesta Volunteers

Our Lipscomb Fiesta committee needs your help. The event is fueled by the energy of our parent volunteers. Since the Fiesta will take place on a school holiday, and many teachers would not be able to attend due to scheduled training, we need all the help we can get!


The next planning meeting is scheduled for Friday, October 4th at 3:30 p.m. in the school library. We hope to see you there!

Kids teaching Kids

The 21-Day Challenge encourages our kiddos to prepare their own fruit and veggie snacks. Parents can register children from now to October 7, by visiting kids-teaching-kids.com.

Kids create their own healthy snack daily for 21 consecutive days and log it in their Snacking Log. They can get ideas for healthy snacks from their recipe book, or the online Healthy Snack Finder. They can also create their own recipe!

Make sure to submit your log and complete the final assessment. Every child that participates, and completes their log, will receive a reward when they return from Spring Break!


This year Dallas ISD is challenging Arlington ISD to have the most Super Snackers!
