From Mrs. Frankhouser...
It has been a wonderful Teacher Appreciation Week! We have the best teachers in Central Texas, the most supportive community in Central Texas, and the hardest working students in Central Texas. So many wonderful "Thank you's" have come in this week, and I know our teachers feel the love.
Next week is STAAR testing week. We will ask for no volunteers on campus as we ensure a quiet testing environment. We appreciate all of your support!
To celebrate the hard work of our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students (and to lighten the mood and make sure that school is a fun place that celebrates hard-working students) our student body has voted to make a "Frankhouser Sundae" at assembly tomorrow!! Wish me luck!!
A friendly reminder from the Lakeway Police Department and Lake Travis Fire and Rescue... Please do not park or leave your car unattended in the fire lane!

About the LTE Podcast, "All Ears": At the beginning of every month, we will be sending out a theme for the upcoming podcast. Every student (PreK-5) will write a piece based on that theme. All writing will be done at school, and students may use a multitude of writing genres! Examples: narratives, expository, dramas, poetry, works of fiction, etc.! Alongside opportunities to share writing with classmates, buddy classes, at Language Arts Night, and out on display in the hallway, two students will be selected from every grade level to be featured in that month's podcast. Judging will be based on content and expression rather than grammar. We're looking for the music in the language over the mechanics.First and foremost, we're aiming to create and instill a love for writing in our students.
Hooray for writing! Thank you, The Writing Committee
We LOVE our Watch Dog Dads!

By volunteering 30 minutes a week to read to a student, you can help solve one of the largest problems in the Greater Austin area - school dropout rates. Research shows that children not reading at grade level by the end of 3rd grade are four times more likely to drop out of school. Join the movement to change this trend and demonstrate you care about community by becoming a literacy partner or mentor in your neighborhood school.
