LISD Staff Celebrates Start to 2022-23 School Year

All five feeder patterns hosted pep rallies to encourage teachers as the school year begins.

We are just days away from the start of the 2022-23 school year, and this week our staff was welcomed back with celebrations across the district. Each feeder pattern hosted their own pep rally to kick-off the school year, where teachers had a chance to re-energize with inspiring speeches, games, performances and more. 

Superintendent Dr. Lori Rapp began each pep rally with a message focused on both her goals as superintendent and her goals for the district. “We know that we are in the profession that changes lives,” she said to LISD staff members. “Teachers have the opportunity to leave a legacy and make a lasting impact.” 

Dr. Rapp continued by emphasizing the role of community engagement in the success of our district, a goal echoed by our One LISD theme for the 2022-23 school year. “What has the power to set us apart and help us navigate the challenges we face is how well we build community,” Dr. Rapp said. “Community Engagement is truly our secret ingredient.” 

After Dr. Rapp’s remarks, each feeder pattern put their own unique spin on the rest of their time together. Keep reading for a summary of each event and use the links below to view full photo albums.
