    A note from the Principal, Rita Bacque



    Dear Parents, Students and Community Members,


    It is mid-way through November!!  Where does the time go?  Each year seems to fly by faster than the last!  I guess this teaches us not to let the possibility of making memories pass us by and to enjoy each and every day we have.


    We are collecting canned goods and non-perishable items for the North Texas Community Food Pantry (formerly Metro Relief).  We have not received as many donations as we would like to have had.  Please consider donating to this very worthy cause.  We have EXTENDED our donation timeframe to next Tuesday, November 12th.


    We have had several calls about having school on Monday.  We DO have school Monday, November 11th.  It is Veteran’s Day and we are celebrating our Veterans with a program at 9:00 a.m. and a reception to follow.  RSVPs were due on Nov. 5th.


    Please remember to consult our 2019-2020 School Calendar located on the LISD website for information regarding holidays and early release days.
