2019-2020 Academic Calendar
Hello LVES Families! I have enjoyed learning about the different responsibilities our students have this month as we have been talking about the character trait of Responsibility. It is important for children to understand that showing responsibility at home, school, and with friends also shows that they are trustworthy and dependable. What kinds of opportunities have you given your child to help them learn about and show responsibility?
Have you heard about the Old Farm Community Center Food Pantry? This local resource is stocked with lots of wonderful free food for anyone in the community. Some items include fresh fruits, vegetables, frozen meats, beverages, baked goods, and even dog food.
They are located at 3500 Lohman Ford Road in Lago Vista, and are open on Saturdays at 9:00am-1:00pm, or until they run out of food. For more information, their website is: http://www.oldfarmcommunitycenter.com/garden

¡Hola familias de LVES! Disfruté aprendiendo sobre las diferentes responsabilidades que tienen nuestros estudiantes este mes, ya que hemos estado hablando sobre el rasgo de carácter de responsabilidad. Es importante que los niños comprendan que mostrar responsabilidad en el hogar, la escuela y con los amigos también demuestra que son confiables y confiables. ¿Qué tipo de oportunidades le ha dado a su hijo para ayudarlo a aprender y mostrar responsabilidad?
¿Has oído hablar de la despensa de alimentos de Old Farm Community Center? Este recurso local está abastecido con una gran cantidad de alimentos maravillosos y gratuitos para cualquier persona de la comunidad. Algunos artículos incluyen frutas frescas, verduras, carnes congeladas, bebidas, productos horneados e incluso comida para perros.
Están ubicados en 3500 Lohman Ford Road en Lago Vista, y están abiertos los sábados de 9:00 a.m. a 1:00 p.m., o hasta que se les acabe la comida. Para obtener más información, su sitio web es: http://www.oldfarmcommunitycenter.com/garden
