Message from the Superintendent
January 2015 is School Board Recognition Month—a great time to focus on the crucial role an elected board of trustees plays in our communities and schools. They are extraordinary people who voluntarily tackle the enormous job of governing school districts. Their actions and decisions affect the present and future lives of our children.
Recognizing board members for this commitment and sacrifice takes a combined effort on the part of all those they serve: administrators, school staff, students, and the community. Even though showing appreciation should be a year-round process, taking advantage of the designated School Board Recognition Month in January ensures that these important people receive some of the thanks they deserve. Thank you LISD school board members, Rolando Velazquez, Sylvia Perez, Margot D. Salinas, Eloy Castañeda, Tony Nieto, Isidro Robles and Michael Salinas, for all you do for our students, staff and community! You are definitely a “Work of Heart”.
We continue to stress our three district goals:
1. LISD will provide an educational experience that produces well rounded students that are prepared to succeed after graduation.
2. LISD will maintain and support the highest quality staff that is accountable, professional and respectful to all stakeholders.
3. LISD will collaboratively transform the district by developing a holistic learning experience.
Thank you to the Lasara parents for your constant support. Lasara students will continue to succeed and become scholars. Have a Happy and Healthy New Year!
Don’t forget that Friday, December 19, 2014 is an early release!
All staff report back to school on Monday, January 5, 2015 for a workday.
