Yearbook Sales Goal Countdown

Our goal for yearbook sales is 90 books. Currently we have 60. We need 30 more to reach our goal. Buying a yearbook not only keeps memories from your child's school days, but it also raises money for our school.


These profits are used to help our staff enrich your child's learning environment here at LVIS. We have 24 days remaining to hit our goal before the final order is submitted. We will not be ordering ANY extra yearbooks beyond what we sell.


For your convenience, you can order online at:

Don't miss out on your opportunity to own the FIRST annual edition of the LVIS yearbook.

Counselor’s Cubby

Our 5th graders are getting ready for the exciting transition to Lago Vista Middle School! Mrs. La Rosa, LVMS School Counselor, met with all our 5th graders on Thursday to share important information about that journey. Your student was given a green course selection card that is due back to Mrs. Burke by Monday, April 24. Be sure to look over the 2017-2018 Middle School Course Guide posted on the LVISD home page at lagovistaisd.net as well as on Mrs. Burke’s Science web page.

Your future 6th grader should be able to answer the following questions about LVMS:

How long is the passing period?

Why do we have “one-way hallways”?

What time does school start?

What is “self-advocacy”?

How many Pre-AP classes do we offer 6th graders?

How do I know if advanced classes are right for me?

What is the difference between Pre-Athletics and PE?

Why are student planners recommended?

Who can I talk to when I need help?

What are required electives?

Why do I rank the electives I would like to have next year?

When is the green course selection card due and who do I give it to?

Please call Mrs. La Rosa or Mrs. Spexarth, LVMS Assistant Principal, if you have any questions about LVMS. We want our Vikings to know that there are lots of people available to help them continue to set challenging goals and support them every step of the way!
