WOW!!

August 4 -    New Students to the District may begin the online registration process.

NOTICE - Immunizations for incoming 7th graders
All students who will be entering the 7th grade in the 2014-2015 school year will need to obtain vaccinations this summer (if they have not already done so). The State of Texas requires that all students be vaccinated against certain communicable diseases before starting school.  Students that do not meet the 2014-2015 Texas Minimum State Vaccine Requirements will not be able to start the school year OR obtain his or her schedule if immunizations are not up to date.  Please check with your doctor or the school nurse if you have any questions.

I hope everyone is enjoying this cooler than normal summer.  The 2014-2015 school year is fast approaching.  It is going to be a GREAT school year.  Lorena Middle School will be "ALL IN" - "All Leopards Learning & Invested" to explore and give 100% effort toward EXTRAORDINARY!!

Please contact the LMS office with any questions.  There will also be more information about registration on the LISD website in the coming weeks.

Many Thanks

I would like to take a moment to thank everyone - students, parents, faculty and staff, as well as the community for such a FANTASTIC school year.  The 2013-2014 school year went by quickly.  Reflecting upon the school year, students and staff have accomplished so much.  Lorena Middle School could not have done it without you.

I thank everyone for their patience during the construction process.  Things are moving along and we will have an even better facility when we open our doors in the fall for the 2014-2015 school year.

Summer Activities

While the LISD is undergoing LOTS of construction, the Lorena Middle School continues to be a hub of activity.  Many athletic activities usually held in the HS Gym are now being held in the MS Gym.  If you are bringing students to the LMS for an activity in the Gym, we do ask you to please use the back entrance into the school. We are also hosting a STAAR Bootcamp for LMS students.  Students attending STAAR Bootcamp may enter through the front doors. Our offices are open Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. should you need to call for any information.  STAAR Retests for 5th and 8th grade Math and Reading will be held Tuesday, June 23rd for Math and Wednesday, June 24th for Reading.

Getting Ready for 14-15

Congratulations Coach Hubbard!!

Coach Holly Hubbard has been nominated and selected as the Lorena Middle School Teacher of the Month for May.  Coach Hubbard teaches 7th and 8th grade English Language Arts. She also coaches girls atheletics.
Coach Hubbard is in her 10th year of teaching, but this is her first year at Lorena Middle School.

Below is a portion from the nomination letter Coach Hubbard received:

I would like to nominate Holly Hubbard for Teacher of the Month for many reasons.  I am continually amazed by her creative projects in both her 7th and 8th grade classes.  Students are always working on something "out of the box."  Coach Hubbard proudly displays their hard work throughout the hallways.  Also, Coach Hubbard always has a positive attitude.  She is full of energy and clearly loves her job.  I have never heard her complain even once.  Coach Hubbard has great relationships with her students.  I feel I could learn a lot from her as a teacher.  Coach Hubbard is very deserving of being named Teacher of the Month.


Congratulations Coach Hubbard!
