    Lamar High School is an International Baccalaureate school whose goal is to provide the best opportunity for a diverse group of students to receive a rigorous, internationally accredited education, with a broad range of extracurricular activities, in a safe and nurturing environment. The goal of the IB is for students to be challenged academically, while also finding creative and physical fitness outlets, getting involved in the community around them, and developing a global view that takes the student beyond their immediate environment.

    As you can imagine, these last few months have tested our cognitive agility, flexibility and problem solving, but I am confident we are working toward an academically rigorous and productive year for our students.  Next week I will be hosting a parent and student meeting for all members of the Lamar community to detail our plan.  I hope that you are able to join.
    During the latter half of the Spring semester, our teachers worked to turn on a dime to offer online instruction.  Now, we have had time to determine what worked and what did not, and develop systems and procedures, along with strong professional development to make learning online feel a little more like learning on campus, and fit the overarching instructional design consistent with IB.  Students will have opportunities to work with teachers and classmates in an inquiry-based lesson design, with opportunities for collaboration.  Our Instructional Continuity Plan will address systems and procedures for online learning, and will address some of the hybrid options when we are transitioning back to on-campus learning.   It will be important for you to understand the opportunities and expectations before the start of the new school year.  We have several drive-thru events to help students prepare for the school year.  Please make sure you are making every effort to come during the identified dates.  Make-up days will be available, but please recognize the wait time may be longer during make-up days.

    Welcome New Texans!

    The 2020-21 school year is likely to start a little differently than it has in the past. We want to make sure our newest Texans get a good orientation to Lamar and are able to navigate the online components of the Lamar instruction plan.
