January, 2019 (Volume 2, Number 1)

Happy New Year!

January marks the New Year as well as the beginning of the second semester of the 2018-2019 school year. Along with making resolutions is an opportunity to set and achieve academic goals for the second half of the school year. Students may also wish to set personal goals, such as improving time-management skills or volunteering to help a valued cause. Whatever you and your family hope to achieve, here's to making 2019 the best year possible.


Big picture
LPS fourth graders hosted a school-wide food drive benefitting the North Texas Foodbank. This effort was led by parent Smita Choudaha, mother of Sid Choudaha (4th grade) and Suhani Choudaha (8th grade). Thanks to our elementary students and their families' generous holiday-giving spirit, we were able to donate over 1,000 cans/boxes of food to help fight hunger in our community. Parents volunteered to gather the food for delivery just in time for the holidays.
