Art Fundraiser – Student Art Makes Great Holiday Gifts EVERYONE Loves!

Our annual art fundraiser, which helps support our art department, is in full swing! Your child will come home with a child specific order form in Monday folders from Silver Graphics showing their artwork and instructions for online ordering. This fundraiser allows us to order art supplies like clay and glazes and other items which we otherwise would not be able to purchase. 
Go to shop.silvergraphics.com
Enter the Access Code: LMEART2018

The art fundraiser products make great gifts for special occasions! Thank you so much for your support! Deadline to order is Wednesday, November 21st.

 

Paperback Book Drive

Give the gift of reading to a local child!  Please consider donating gently used paperback books, toddler through high school, to RRISD’s TAGPAC book drive, now through Thanksgiving.  Paperback book donations can be placed in the large red collection bins in the hallway outside the main office.

All donations will be given to students at RRISD Title I schools, to keep, so they have new books to read at home during December vacation and can build their home libraries.  This book drive is inspired by research that shows that ““Having as few as twenty books in the home still has a significant impact on propelling a child to a higher level of education, and the more books you add, the greater the benefit.” 

For questions or to volunteer to help with the book drive, please contact Vidhya Vasudevan  or Krista Laine

Parent Volunteer Applications Now Due

Any person wishing to volunteer in RRISD is required to complete a Volunteer Application each school year, to improve student safety. We strongly encourage all our parents to complete a ‘Volunteer Application’ as early in the year as possible. You must have a volunteer application on file each school year if you plan to chaperone a field trip. Complete the volunteer application.

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 AmazonSmile and select your charitable organization as “ PTA Texas Congress 7871 Laurel Mountain Elementary” based in Austin, TX then start shopping!

Fill out the Pick-up Authorization form. Only parents, guardians, and people listed on this form will be permitted to pick up your child.
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.
