SCIS Hack-A-Thon May 29-30 - Volunteers Needed:
SCIS is hosting Hack-A-Thon on May 29-30. Hack-A-Thon is a two day competition at SCIS where students engage in solving a real-world problem by engineering a prototype and an accompanying phone app. To do this, students use all sorts of materials to build their prototype. In previous years, it's been a bit of a free for all with regards to materials, and some of our kiddos get wrapped up in building prototypes they will never finish or that are really sparkly. This year, we are planning to shake things up a bit by providing each team with a budget and debit card they can spend at the STEM Store. To do this we will need parent volunteers for both days to man the cash registers (a laptop with a simple excel file) and fill orders (grab stuff off of a list and bag it up).  In addition, if you are an engineer or have an interest in STEM fields and would like to help students problem solve through out the day we would love your assistance. 
If you would like to help, please sign up here:

End of Year Social

Important News from Student Nutrition Regarding Student Meal Accounts
This is a courtesy message from Lovejoy Student Nutrition Services to inform households of an upcoming change in student meal accounts. In an effort to minimize negative balances at the end of the school year, beginning Wednesday, May 8 and for the remainder of the school year, students will no longer be able to charge meals which will result in the student incurring a negative balance to their meal account. Students may continue to use their lunch accounts as long as they have money in the account. Households with students who currently have negative balances will receive reminder emails and phone calls. Federal regulations prohibit us from rolling over negative balances to the next school year. Please make arrangements to remit payment for any negative lunch accounts your child may have incurred.
All positive balances will be rolled over to next school year. If you have a graduating senior, funds may be transferred to any sibling in the school district. To request a meal account refund, please complete a refund request form located on the Student Nutrition website. For assistance, please contact Student Nutrition at 469.742.8041.
Student Nutrition Services thanks you for your understanding and for allowing us to serve your student(s) this school year.

From the Nurse
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: 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.
