What’s Happening

Welcome Back!

Please make note that our new school hours are 7:40am-2:50pm. Laurel Mountain doors open at 7:00am.

Reporting Your Child’s Absence
If your child is absent from school, an online absence form should be submitted as soon as possible. Please click on the “Report an Absence” button in the right corner of this page.(*NOTE: all absences will result in an automated phone call from the district for every day of absence. If you have already reported your child’s absence online this message can be ignored.) You may submit the online absence form in advance if you know your child will be absent. If a child is not in class at 9:00 am they will be marked absent for the day. If an absence or tardy is due to a doctor’s appointment, notify the office that your child will be arriving late or leaving early, and be sure to bring in a note from the doctor’s office.

Car Rider Window Tags
If you pick up your child in the car rider line, we ask that you create and print a window tag to display on the passenger side of your car each day. These tags help expedite our dismissal process. You can create and print your car rider tag online at: http://www.lmepta.org/ carpool_tag.html

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.

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.

Outdoor Learning in Round Rock ISD is more than just a short walk on a nature trail. Outdoor Learning provides ongoing authentic learning experiences for students that encompasses traditional subjects like science, language arts, math, technology and social studies; and engages broader objectives like responsibility and respect. Through Outdoor Learning, students are provided a unique opportunity to engage subjects in a way not found in the traditional brick-and-mortar classroom.
