Let's Hear the Roar
Week of April 13th
Note from the LCHS Admin Team
Good Morning Lion Family,
It is hard to believe a month ago we released early for Spring Break due to the coronavirus. We hope you and your family are safe and adjusting to our current situation. Please reach out to your child’s teacher, counselor, or administrator if there is anything we can do. We ask you to partner with our teachers these last six weeks to make the most of remote learning.
Thank you to Mrs. Rice and our Student Council for organizing weekly virtual spirit weeks. Follow @lakecreek_stuco for these updates. In addition, we have built a great webpage for the Class of 2020. We want to celebrate this incredible class. Click here for the Class of 2020.
Thank you for completing our Parent Survey. We have shared results with our faculty and staff. Students were sent a survey on their school email. Please encourage them to fill out the short survey. As we plan for the next school year, please make sure your child's Course Selection Forms are turned into their counselor ASAP.
We are all heartbroken by the interruption of normal school operations, but trust that there are brighter days ahead. We are encouraged to hear of continued recovery for Mr. Eaton. Thank you for staying connected to our great Lake Creek community. Have a great week!

A Note from Robotics
The Lake Creek High School robotics teams were highly successful in our second year as a program. In our class, students learn to design, build, program, and drive robots to perform many different functions. Throughout the year, we are fortunate to be able to have students put their skills to the test through different competitions. The two main competitions we participate in are BEST Robotics and VEX Robotics.
At the beginning of the year, we participated in BEST Robotics. The challenge was to create a robot that could restore power to a city by reattaching downed power lines (ropes), installing underground cables (PVC pipes) and reattach transformers (Velcro cylinders). The students were very creative in their approach to this challenge, and as a first-year team, they finished 5th in the performance portion of the competition. Our school earned the distinction, and received a plaque for, “Rookie Team of the Year”. We are looking to expand this program to incorporate other groups throughout the school so that we, as a school, can move on to the UIL State Championship next year.
From November to March, we competed in VEX Robotics tournaments. At the beginning of the season, we fielded 3 teams comprised of students from the Advanced Robotics class at LCHS. This year, the challenge was to use 5.5” cubes to make stacks in a scoring zone and to lift cubes in the air and place them on a raised platform. Each time they participated in a tournament, they would come back to class and make revisions to their robots so that they would be more efficient in scoring during the next tournament. After Christmas, the Intro to Robotics students had learned enough to start competing with their own designs, and we were able to field two more teams. Our teams were highly competitive and we were able to take 4 out of 5 teams to the South Texas VEX Robotics Regional State Championship. Three of the four teams made it to the playoff rounds. One team was one win away from securing their spot in the VEX World Championships for the 2nd year in a row. After this tournament, two teams, one from the intro to robotics class, and one from the advanced class, were invited to take part in the VEX Robotics 5A Championship. Those same two teams were also in line to receive and invitation to the VEX World Championship due to their solid skills ranking (top 15% in the WORLD!!!). Unfortunately, our journey was cut short with the closing of events around the world. Regardless of how it ended, or would have ended, I am extremely proud of the amount of hard work and determination that this group of students displayed throughout the year.
I can’t wait to get this all started up again next year!
