As we celebrate this season of giving and thanks, the Lamar PTO would like to say “thank you” to everyone who has contributed their time, money, and energy to helping our efforts to support the students, faculty, and staff at Lamar High School. While we are truly thankful for every dollar donated to the PTO, we still have a long way to go to reach our revenue goals which will allow the PTO to continue to support the programs that we have historically funded each year.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, the PTO is launching the Second Annual “Big & Bright Fall Giving Campaign” from Tuesday, November 15 to Thursday, November 17, to help raise enough revenue to fully fund the following programs:
Please consider donating to the “Big & Bright Fall Giving Campaign.” No amount is too big or too small, and all donations will be used to directly support the programs listed above. Own or know a business that would like to partner with our PTO and assist with helping us fund these programs? Become a sponsor of Lamar Texans by donating to our Corporate Giving Campaign.
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.
Lamar believes in big school opportunities and a small school feel. To make this mission possible we split our student body into neighborhoods that allow each Assistant Principal and Academic Dean to work with a small group of students. To find out who your student's Assistant Principal and Academic Dean are please check the list.
HISD is implementing a new Learning Management System (LMS) to replace the HUB this school year with Canvas. Canvas will be used across the district to help students learn and grow. With any changes, we know there can be stress about learning a new tool. We have put together some helpful tip videos to ease the transition.
The Lamar Writing Lab is having our inaugural year during the 2022-2023 school year! Students will be able to sign up for writing sessions (either virtual or in person) with Writing Consultants from Rice or with Lamar Peer Writing Coaches under the model of the Rice Writing Center. We are excited to be able to share this resource with our students to help improve their understanding of writing.
