Deep in the Heart of Fulshear

Howdy Hounds!


Whew! Another week that flew by quickly! We packed a lot of learning and fun into this week, and we will keep it that way these next 4 weeks as we head into the last month of the school year!


Thank you so much to everyone that contributed to our Dollar Drive for the Lamar Educational Awards Foundation. We will be announcing our house winner on Monday, as we had some last minute donations roll in!


On Thursday, we had the honor of meeting almost 50 of our future hounds at our Pre-K and Kindergarten Round-Up and Orientation. Thank you to everyone that came. Please continue to help spread the word about registration.


Starting Monday, May 2nd - Friday, May 6th we will be celebrating TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK! Please check out the flyer below from Friends of Huggins. We are looking forward to showering our amazing staff with love.

School Meals...

Lamar CISD has announced its participation in the Seamless Summer Option for the 2021-2022 school year, offering healthy meals every school day to all students at no cost.

Typically, a student’s household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-price meals. However, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued guidance that allows schools to offer meals to all students at no cost for the 2021-2022 school year.

While no application or eligibility determination is required for our students to receive free meals this school year, income eligibility requirements will likely resume in the 2022-2023 school year.

Extra lunch entrees and a la carte items are not included with the no cost meals.
