Enrichment Cluster Community Tour – November 15th

We are excited to extend our first invitation to our community to take a closer look at the enriching clusters our 4th and 5th graders are currently in. Ms. Vance, our E2 Coordinator will show you how teachers facilitate and engage students to think deeper about what they know, while challenging students to apply their new learning to create a service or product. Please join us this Friday 11/15 , from 8am-9am if you would like to participate!

 Principal Coffee – November 20th

Our next Principal Coffee will explore RRISD Board Goal 2: We will promote academic excellence through learning and enrichment opportunities that engage and inspire every student. This event will give you the opportunity to hear about our strategies and action items for ensuring we are meeting this goal. We will share initiatives and take your questions, too! Please RSVP here!

Update on Receiving LME Text Messages

During our unplanned evacuation on Friday, November 1st, 151/1112 people did not receive the text message I sent from the blacktop. After running some reports and working with a team from Blackboard, we discovered the biggest reason people did not receive the text was that we do not have a number specified as the “mobile” number in our information system. We can fix this on our end if you specify which number, or numbers, you would like to receive our texts. If you did not receive the text, but would like to in the future, please fill out this form. You will need to fill out the form for each number you want to add (maximum of 2). 

 

RRISD Canned Food Drive

We are once again supporting the Round Rock Serving Center in their annual canned food drive. Please send in donations of non perishable food items and cans. This is a great opportunity to facilitate social emotional learning (SEL) through a conversation with your child about empathy.  Here is a wonderful article related to teaching empathy at home

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.
The Aligned Round Rock Curriculum (ARRC)  outlines the learning goals and objectives Round Rock ISD students are expected to achieve.

The entire ARRC can be found on the Round Rock ISD Curriculum website.

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