November, a month to focus on the blessings we each have and to express gratitude for those things that bring us our happiness! I am thankful for a job that I love, in a wonderful community with co-workers who focus on students every day! I appreciate the opportunity to serve the students and the staff at LISD!!
This month we move quickly towards those school holidays, but with lots of activities and events. Our football team is still moving on and working hard as we start the play-offs the week of November 12-16. Watch for updates of specific dates and times of games. Our girls’ basketball season begins this month. We play Lady Eagle basketball weekly on Tuesday and Friday nights, with a couple of tournaments thrown in the mix during the weekends. LISD will host our annual boys’ and girls’ basketball tournament November 29-December 1st. Come out and support your EAGLES!!
We have moved our regular monthly board meeting to November 5th due to a required training for me and the board that is scheduled on November 12th. The public is always welcome at the board meetings. We begin each month at 6:30. We also have a DEIC meeting this month on November 14th at 4:00. If you are on this committee, mark your calendars. We will be having a lockdown drill on Thursday, November 8th across the district. We will be working with local law enforcement to identify ways we can become more effective and efficient with our safety and security procedures.
This year, we will have a week off for the Thanksgiving holidays. Students and staff will observe the holiday from November 19th-23rd. I hope each of you spends lots of time with your family and friends and enjoys every minute with a thankful heart. My girls will be joining us here for the Thanksgiving holidays this year, and I can’t wait to show them how awesome this community is. I am so very thankful, incredibly grateful and unbelievably blessed. I wish each of you a Happy Thanksgiving full of great food, lots of laughter and memories too many to count!
