LVIS Family Newsletter

November 29, 2021

Thank you from LVIS

On behalf of the LVIS Staff, we want to thank all of our families for their support with our APEX Fundraiser. The money earned will support our school in many areas including equipment, teaching supplies, enrichment activities, and more. Thank you for supporting LVIS! The faculty is appreciative for your generosity and support.


At the end of the fundraiser, students participated in a fun run on November 18th. The students had a blast running laps and raising money for a good cause. At the end of the newsletter, there are highlights from the run. Everyone had a great time (even Mr. Garcia when he got slimed)!

Science Fair

Don’t forget the 5th grade science fair project is due January 10th. A science fair is a great way for students to explore their world and learn how things work.This is an excellent time for hands-on learning and working through a scientific problem that interests them. Also, research shows that children who participate in science fairs will learn skills that can be used for problem solving and critical thinking throughout their lifetime. I know our students are excited about science. I can’t wait to see what students have produced, discovered, and uncovered. Our students are always amazing me with their talents!

Thank you

We want to give a huge thank you to Lakeside Christian Fellowship Church for supporting our students and families. They have been so generous and we appreciate their kindness and generosity.

ANNUAL STUDENT REGISTRATION

IMPORTANT! PLEASE COMPLETE ANNUAL STUDENT REGISTRATION FORMS IN ASCENDER PARENT PORTAL!

If you have not done so, it is important that you complete the annual registration process ASAP. This must be completed each year because these forms provide us with important permissions and information that must be provided annually. Students without completed registration forms will begin to lose certain privileges until they are completed, so please take a moment to submit those forms in Ascender.


HOW DO I ACCESS PARENT PORTAL?
https://ascportal.esc13.net/ParentPortal/login?distid=227912


¿NECESITA ESPAÑOL?
Todos los formularios de registro también están en español. Para continuar en español, hay un menú desplegable en la esquina superior derecha de la página de inicio de sesión para cambiar al español.



WHAT IF I HAVE A NEWLY ENROLLED STUDENT? WHAT IF DON'T SEE MY ENROLLED STUDENT IN ASCENDER PARENT PORTAL?
If you enrolled your student during summer enrollment, you must still complete annual registration forms. If you don't see your enrolled student when you log in, an Ascender Parent Portal ID is needed in order to link to your student and complete the annual registration forms.

Please email your campus registrar to receive your student's Ascender Parent Portal ID. Please note that there may be slight delays in answering requests during peak times, such as this, but we will get it to you as quickly as possible!

Once you receive your student's Ascender Parent Portal ID from the campus registrar, please log into Ascender Parent Portal, select "Link to Enrolled Student", and enter the Parent Portal ID and the student's date of birth.


WHAT IF I SEE MY STUDENT, BUT DON'T HAVE A "REGISTRATION" OPTION?
In order to complete forms or update data for a student, the email address you have listed in Ascender Parent Portal must match what we have in our system. If you can see your student, but can't update any information, those email addresses do not match. We recommend updating and verifying your email address in Ascender Parent Portal. If you need us to change your email address in our system, please email registration@lagovista.txed.net and your campus registrar. You will be asked to provide your student's full name, date of birth, and grade level for verification purposes.
