5th Grade - Growth and Development Video (See Video Above)
Action Item for 5th grade Parents:
As part of the health curriculum, the Always Changing video on Human Growth and Development will be shown to the  5th grade on April 26, 2019 at 2:00p.m. during 9th period.  
  • Boys and girls will be separated for the Growth and Development class.  
  • Mr. Smith, Puster Elementary counselor, will talk with the boys. 
  • Tamara Pierce, the nurse at Sloan Creek, will assist with the girls.  
  • They will be available to answer questions and concerns from the students after the presentation of the video. 
  • We will only answer questions that have to do with the information from the video. 
  • As the parent/guardian, you have the most important role in teaching your child about their growth and development.  
  • We encourage you to preview the videos that will be shown and learn more about how to talk to your child. 
Please watch this video with your child before April 26th. 

Sitting and watching together, then answering what questions they have is a wonderful way to allow your child to learn this information in the safety of your home and within the context of your family beliefs.  It would be our goal that when we show the video on April 26th and lead this learning that your child has already seen it with you and you are able to answer their questions

Scroll down to: 
  • Always Changing-Boys 
  • Always Changing-Girls (not the original version). 
Please take this opportunity to talk openly with your child and answer their questions within the context of your family's values and beliefs.

***If we do not receive a form from you by April 17, 2019, your child will NOT be allowed to participate in the class. 

  

From the Nurse
ATTENTION 6TH GRADE PARENTS: 
There are two vaccinations required by the State of Texas for 7th grade: Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) and the meningococcal vaccine.  Typically students will receive these vaccines at their 11 or 12 year old check up.  If your student receives this vaccine, please email or fax a copy of their vaccination record to me.  Please don't wait until the week before school starts to get these vaccines.  Typically there will be a shortage of the vaccines, before school starts, because it is required of all 7th grade students in Texas.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

Thank you for your help!  My email is:  tamara_pierce@lovejoyisd.net and the fax # is 469-742-8401.

School Report Cards from 2017-18
I wanted to make you aware that the 2017-18 School Report Card (SRC) from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) is available on the district website under "Quick Links" and then under "Required Postings" or directly at:
The same reports can be accessed on our campus website under the "About" tab and then selecting TEA School Campus Report Cards.  The SRC provides information on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR), as well as information student enrollment, class size averages, and financial expenditures.
As you may recall, districts do not receive a SRC but the STAAR performance at each campus contributed to Lovejoy ISD being one of only four districts of the 1227 districts and charter schools in Texas to receive the highest rating on the state accountability system with an overall grade of "A" with a scale score of 97 out of 100 possible points.  Please contact me if you have any questions concerning our School Report Card from the Texas Education Agency. Thank you for your continued support of Sloan Creek Intermediate School.
