Tis the season of gratitude!
Each fall I take time to reflect on the many people who come together to make this work of guiding our children toward adulthood happen. The cliché "it takes a village" has more truth to it than not. This year we’ve had the benefit of a PTO that works tirelessly to support our teachers, our program, and our school. That allows us to support students. We’ve had the great fortune of having neighbors that are invested in the success of Lamar. Banning together to create Loving Lamar, they help us meet students' basic needs, emotional support needs and help us connect our kids with internships, practicums, and mentors to make the experience they get here even richer.
We also have a student body that is committed to learning and growing here at Lamar. It is our student body that works tirelessly to take care of one another and to make it easier for us to take care of them. I am grateful for the support of the Houston in Independent in School District in allowing us to explore new learning opportunities for kids and allowing us to be creative in that pursuit.
I also have immense gratitude for the people who work alongside me each day, who are as committed as I am to providing the best educational experience in Houston.
I thank you, teachers, administration, parents, students, neighbors, and friends for the opportunity to do this work with your support.
Every Thursday Lamar sends out a newsletter via school messenger to keep parents and students in the loop on what is happening on campus. Make sure you check here each Thursday to see what exciting things happened on campus.
We have lots to celebrate this week. We have had students go to Region Treble Choir, completed in Houston Resilience Design Challenge and Youth Leadership Summit, Cross country Girls and Boys won District, Debate Team had a wonderful showing at Cypress Lakes High School and a Cross Country runner is heading to State.
