Hebron Hawk Community Newsletter
October 3rd, 2022
As a part of this year's One LISD theme, our district is more committed than ever to bringing our communities closer together. One way we plan to do so is by sending newsletters to each feeder pattern throughout the 2022-23 school year. Our hope is that these newsletters give you a glimpse into the great things happening at LISD schools and inform you of any upcoming community opportunities.
We had a blast celebrating Homecoming with the Hebron community. This year's theme was "Out of This World," and staff and students dressed up accordingly.

New Coach, Same Tradition: Towels Ready to Continue Winning Football at Hebron

II state championship. READ MORE

STEM Education Is Out of This World!
At Creek Valley, STEM education is out of this world. 6th grade STEM students have been taking flight in their first STEM challenge of the year. The challenge, Spacecraft Safety, seeks to answer the question of what accommodations are needed to enable manned space flight. To answer this question, students worked in teams to build a model of a spacecraft using select classroom materials. These materials had to be “purchased” from the classroom store, as the students maintained a team budget of $4.00. Their spacecraft had to include seats for astronauts, a hatch for the astronauts to enter and exit, and even a fuel tank. READ MORE

First Day of School at Killian Middle School
Students arrived on campus ready for the 2022-23 school year! They were welcomed into the building by staff members singing songs, giving out high-fives and even sporting some Mustang costumes. As students made their way to their classrooms, the sound of post-summer reunions filled the halls. Killian staff met their new students, and the learning was officially underway. We can’t wait to see what all of our Mustangs will accomplish in the coming months! SEE PHOTOS
