    GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS:

    Our community partners at 7Eleven are once again offering a Halloween themed illustration and poem contest for students.

    The scheduling of parent/guardian teacher conferences is underway and every family is strongly encouraged to attend a conference with the classroom teacher(s) of their student(s) between now and the end of October.

    The LISD Choices Program is collecting expired/no longer used medication at its Saturday, October 21, disposal event at FMHS from 10:00am to 2:00pm.

    The first nine weeks grading period comes to a close Friday, October 27. It is recommended that all students have all work completed and submitted prior to that day to maximize their grading opportunity.

    A reminder that the wearing of Halloween costumes at school Tuesday, October 31, or any other time, is not an instructional day expectation.

    It would be helpful at home to repeat our school message to students about reporting any unwanted, disrespectful, inappropriate, etc. type action between students to the nearest adult as immediately as possible. This approach helps with intervening in a timely manner, addressing the parties involved, receiving accurate information as much as possible, and applying meaningful consequences. Situations that are delayed or left unreported are not helpful and over time could lead to an on-going and frustrating experience.

    As always, your positive support, involvement, and feedback are greatly appreciated. Have a great week!
