UPCOMING EVENTS
PRINCIPAL'S CORNER
Laurel Mountain is a school for talent development where we are working together to develop the whole child. I am honored to be the principal at an amazing and innovative school in the outstanding Round Rock Independent School District. Thank you for choosing to be a part of the Laurel Mountain Elementary community for the 2014-15 school year. We have opportunities for everyone to be involved in continuing our history of excellence. I hope that you will visit the LME Website and the LME PTA website to learn more about how you can be involved in the excitement of creating an exceptional learning experience for our children. Please call or contact me if you have ideas, suggestions, or questions. I am here to help.

Respectfully,
Jan Richards, Principal

Welcome to Laurel Mountain ElementarY

Posted on 09/08/2014
The P.E. Department at Laurel Mountain is excited that their fun, healthy eating initiative that they started at the end of last year is back, "The Fresh Fruit and Veggie Contest!" Grades 1st - 5th will compete to be the healthiest class in their grade (kindergartners do not bring snacks from home so they do not participate).   READ MORE...
We encourage all of our parents to show their support for LME by joining the PTA during PTA Registration, which is available until Friday, September 19th. Please visit the PTA website at: www.lmepta.org and click on our "Family Registration" link.   READ MORE...
Excellence Fund Campaign
Thank you to all of the families who returned the Excellence Fund envelope last week. The Excellence Fund is Laurel Mountain's annual campaign that funds the Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM). This year, our campaign goes until September 29, 2014.
If you have not had a chance to look over the brochure, we are asking that each family, at the very least, read the information in the brochure and return the envelope to school to show that you have done so. Laurel Mountain's goal is to have 100% participation, which means 100% of the envelopes returned to school. Of course, we would love for every family to make a donation, but we understand that is not always possible. As long as your child's envelope is returned to school, your child's class will receive credit towards 100% participation.
