A Message from the Superintendent

Dear Lovejoy Community:

I hope you are having a great week. Last Saturday night we played in the Tom Landry Classic at Allen Eagle Stadium. Our Cheer, Majestics, Band, and Color Guard were outstanding and represented our district in exemplary fashion. By the way, Leopard football produced almost 500 yards in total offense in defeating Frisco Heritage 42-26. It was a nice night to be a Leopard. 

Circle of Partners

As you know, we continue to seek creative ways to enhance our revenue stream to offset the loss of state funds. Our reduction in state funding is projected to be ~$1.5 million based upon our per pupil level of funding from last year. A loss of state funds leaves us with two options: 1) cut programs or 2) seek a new revenue stream. Our Board of Trustees has directed the administration to do everything we can to protect the current experiences our Lovejoy students receive in K-12. While we are doing a variety of things to raise funds, we have implemented a new program: Circle of Partners. This program will embrace opportunities with area business who share revenue with our school district. To date, we have two areas under the Circle of Partners umbrella:

Real Estate : Provides an opportunity for our realtors to share a portion of their commission from the sale of homes within Lovejoy ISD. To date, we have one realtor who has signed on with this program:

Reinhard Real Estate pledges 10% of gross commission to several non-profits including Lovejoy ISD. Their website can be found at   Reinhard Real Estate . Jeff and Terri Reinhard own Reinhard Real Estate. They are proud Puster parents to fourth grader Ben, and 2nd grader Max.

Tutoring Services: Lovejoy ISD has also accepted Tutoring 101 into our Circle of Partners. Beginning in September, Tutoring 101@LHS will provide K-12 tutoring at Lovejoy High School, Monday through Thursday. This arrangement will also share gross revenue with our school district. Click here: Tutoring 101@Lovejoy High School for additional information.
