Yearbook Pridelines

Attention all 5th grade families: In the LME yearbook, there is a section in which relatives can send a personal message to their 5th grader. The messages are an opportunity to express how proud you are of them and their accomplishments. Be on the lookout for a flyer in your student’s Monday folder. It will have instructions on how to order your yearbook Prideline. The cost is $6 and all Pridelines must be turned in by February 21st. Questions: contact Barbie Burgett at barbieburgett@gmail.com

You can also find the flyer on our PTA website. 

 

E2 and You: Join us to Learn about Enrichment and the Environment at LME on Feb. 8th

You are invited to join Trevor Hance, our Enrichment & the Environment Coordinator, at an “E2 and YOU” session to learn more about the Schoolwide Enrichment Model, “E2,” Enrichment Clusters, and take a walk around the campus to see the Preserve and new spaces we are developing that are at the heart of what makes Laurel Mountain Elementary such a special place for our students, staff, and community. The tour will take place on Friday, February 8th from 8:00-9:00am. The tour will begin in the office. Please click here to RSVP so we know how many people to expect for the tour.

Campus Family Surveys Open Through February 9

The annual campus family survey opens today, Monday, Jan. 7, and will remain open through Saturday, Feb. 9. Please click here to complete the survey

Responses from parents, staff, and students directly impact campus life and help shape school activities and programs. The online survey is mobile-friendly and short; participants can expect it to take about 5 minutes to complete. If you prefer a paper survey or need help accessing the online survey, please contact the front office staff at your campus.

Each campus performs its own survey. Therefore, if you have students at multiple Round Rock ISD schools, please fill out a survey for each campus where you have a student enrolled. Principals at each of your students’ schools are eager to gather feedback and produce the best possible academic and social experiences for students.

Results from the survey are used by campus administration to plan, implement or adjust campus policies and programs. Survey results from previous years have been instrumental in driving lasting changes, including:

  • Increased funding to promote student social and emotional learning initiatives
  • Developing and designing classes for parents,
  • Measuring the effectiveness of specific initiatives, and
  • Helping schools identify specific areas of need and improvement goals.

 

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. 

If you are a parent of a student at Laurel Mountain and you are NOT receiving our school enews, submit your email so we can add it to our list.

2018-2019 School Supply Lists

Note: The 3rd grade supply list mistakenly requests two blue spirals, but it should be one blue spiral, one green, and one red.

School supply packs available for purchase (grades K, 1, 3)

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.
