What’s Happening

STAAR Testing for Grades 4-5 Next Tuesday and Wednesday – CLOSED CAMPUS
On Tuesday and Wednesday of next week our students will be taking the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) tests: March 28th: STAAR Testing for G4 Writing & G5 Math; March 29th: STAAR Testing for G5 Reading.

On these days Laurel Mountain will be a “closed campus”. This means we need to ask that all parents refrain from visiting the campus for volunteer duties and/or for having lunch with their child, in any grade, on these days. We utilize rooms all over campus for testing and we need to ensure all hallways are quiet and secure. If you have a student in 4th or 5th grade please refrain from scheduling doctor appointments that will require your student to be pulled out of class on scheduled testing days.

2016-17 Student Pick-up Authorization Form – Please Complete for All Students at LME
It is time to to collect pick-up authorization information for our students via an online form to ensure
we have this information readily available, particularly if/when we need to implement our parent/student reunification plan due to an emergency. Anyone who you might possibly ask to pick-up your child for any reason (siblings, neighbors, relatives, co-workers. etc.) should be listed on this form. Anyone not listed on the online form or student registration form will not be permitted to pick up your child for any reason. We ask that one parent from each household complete this form as soon as possible.

This information will be kept confidential in the office. If you have any questions regarding this form, please contact our Communications Specialist, Anne Webster at anne_webster@roundrockisd.org. Thank you for your help with this matter.

Support the PTA When Shopping on AmazonSmile
On December 8th at the General PTA meeting, it was approved that the LME PTA would participate in AmazonSmile, which is Amazon’s charitable organization that will automatically donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to our PTA. AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know – same products, same prices, same service. It costs you nothing, and it’s just like shopping on Amazon normally, but you get to do a world of good while shopping. Go to smile.amazon.com and select your charitable organization as “ PTA Texas Congress 7871 Laurel Mountain Elementary” based in Austin, TX then start shopping!

What is SEM?
Laurel Mountain Elementary (LME) cultivates the individual gifts and talents of every child through the implementation of the Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM). This enrichment program is embedded in all classrooms and practiced every day by every student.

SEM provides teachers with tools and methods that support their ability to:

  • discover your child’s preferred learning style,
  • focus on each child’s individual strengths,
  • emphasize self-esteem, and
  • encourage independent critical thinking.
