Lago Vista Middle School
11/22/19 Excellence in all we do!
We wanted to say a sincere, heartfelt thank you for allowing us to teach your children everyday.
It's crazy to think we have already gotten to Thanksgiving! Enjoy the break and we will see you when we get back on Monday, December 2nd.
On Monday, we had a small fire in the school's dryer which caused us to evacuate the school. Thanks to Travis County ESD#1 for their prompt response, and to all the teachers and staff for helping keep our kids safe.
Mrs. Mel's Viking Voice held a mock trial this week to learn about questioning techniques, and also how to accurately report an event they are watching.
