Pledging to make a difference
After our Principal, Mr. Howard, went to Africa this summer, it's safe to say he's a changed man. He came back with a new passion for helping others, for teaching all students, and making a change for the better. Everywhere you look, you see changes happening and drastic improvements. It's amazing to watch our Luna Lions embrace this love for others.
One of our newest programs is the Watch D.O.G.S., or Dads of Great Students. These dads have volunteered and committed to being on campus every Wednesday and Friday each week. Their presence is definitely felt, and their impact is great. For more information, please contact Mrs. Snook, or check out our activities page.
How fun was it playing Can-D Land? Did you know that the D stood for Donation?? We we're playing a game literally named to inspire people to donate cans! I know you all had a blast pinning your teacher's face to the wall with every new can. We had lots of fun and collected tons of cans. Your love for fun and giving spirit teamed up in new style. Way to go, Luna Lions!
Giving back to the community
On Tuesday, Decemeber 17, our 4th and 5th grade Honor Choir will be traveling to Winter's Park Assisted Living to perform for them. The residents there truly light up listening to our Lions sing, and it's a wonderful time that the student's invest in their community. Honor Choir members, remember to get your money and field trip permission form into Mrs. Knagg as soon as possible.
We just ran the Turkey Trot as a pledge to get healthy! 4th grade challenged themselves to 200 miles, the same distance from Garland to Austin. Unfortunately, due to bad weather and rescheduling, they only ran 54. Still very impressive, and they're definitely healthier for it. Way to go, 4th grade!
Technology for Learning
Please share your ideas with the district about the use of technology for learning by completing the Speak up 2013 survey. It will be available through December 20, 2013.
Vote for Your Favorite Teacher
Your teacher could win a free car for a month! Teachers with the most votes across the district win a car for one month from Jupiter Chevrolet! How cool is that?? You can vote for your favorite teacher by going to Facebook
. Voting deadline is the 23rd each month.
Getting Involved Again
We love our PTA parents and family members and are extremly apprecaiative of all of their hard work and dedication. Volunteering always gets a little harder around the holidays. We'd like to encourage you to recommit at the beginning of the new year. Be sure to check out the Luna PTA page to see how you can become more involved and become a part of the Luna PTA team!
