Excellence In All We Do - Week I

Welcome Back!

It was an amazing first two days at LVMS! We loved seeing our students again, and our staff had an awesome two days of building relationships to get to know their classes. Looking forward to another great week!!

iPads will be handed out on Monday during school - information about the coverage will go out next week.


As a principal, I like to say "Yes" to my teachers whenever they need something. Last year, I wasn't really able to do many fundraisers, so my account is a little low. Here is our simple fundraiser - I am asking for donations of $20 dollars or more, and that will get you discounts to many different places(Amazon is one of them!).

Please check out this link and donate if you are able -

Donations help fund:

  • Culinary Arts

  • Teacher Training

  • Teacher Supplies

  • Student Incentives

  • Technology for the classroom

  • UIL and OAP Supplies

  • School Improvement

On Wednesday August 4, Berniece Donnellan and Patricia Nixa present school supplies donated by St Mary’s Parish to April Woodburn, LVMS counselor, Eric Holt, LVMS principal, and Cynthia Gumbert, LV Intermediate School counselor. The drive was sponsored by St Mary’s Women’s Guild. This is just a small portion of what was donated.

Here is the bell schedule for next year...first bell starts at 8:00 AM!

Drop Off/Pick Up in the Morning

Drop off and pick up in the morning and afternoons have been really smooth(especially for the first days!). A few reminders -

- In the morning, drop off is between 7:35 - 8:00. 6th, 7th and 8th grade can be dropped off either in the front of the school or behind the school. If your student needs breakfast, they can be dropped off by the cafeteria.

- 6th Grade Pick Up after school is in the front of the school. 7th and 8th grade pick up is in the back of the school.

- For a video tutorial, please take a look at this:

TeamApp for Athletics

Do you have a 7th or 8th grader in Athletics?

TeamApp (free in the App Store) is how we will communicate all information to our athletes and parents. Once you download the app, register with your email, and then search for the team you want to join.

LVMS Boys Athletics
LVMS Girls Athletics
(case sensitive)

We highly recommend that athletes as well as parents have the app. Please also consider turning on the notifications so you don’t miss anything important.
