Six Flags Read to Succeed

Lindsey is participating in the Six Flags Read to Succeed Six Hour Reading Club!

This year parents and/or guardians will record their child’s reading at www.sixflags.com/books. Information was sent home before the holidays with a class code. You will need this code to register your child’s reading log. Please contact heather.janek@allenisd.org if you need your class code. Online registration must be completed by March 31, 2020.

Principal's Corner

Parents, we just want to remind you that our tardy bell rings at 7:45. This is when our announcements begin and our day is underway. If your student is walking in the building after 7:45 they are not getting into the classrooms and unpacking until after this has all begun. We do not want them to miss this important start to our day. Please make an effort to have your student in our building by 7:45. Thanks so much for your help!

Lindsey Serves - Changing the world one minute at a time.

Our campus goal is 3000 hours! For each hour of community service, students will write their name on a gold heart sticker and place it on the #LindseyLoves heart. We would love to fill the heart with all your Lonestar's hours by the end of the school year.

Don't forget to snap a pic of your child’s act of service and tag @LindseyElem on Twitter with hashtag #LindseyLoves.

Thanks for teaching our future the importance of CIVIC MINDFULNESS.
