LISD celebrated Thanksgiving with its annual Holiday Feast in our cafeterias as parents joined their kids for a delicious meal. Turkey, Ham and all of the rest of the traditional trimmings were prepared and served by our amazing kitchen staff with some special servers helping out. The cafeterias were abuzz as a wonderful time was had by all. A special thanks goes out to the cafeteria crew, janitorial and maintenance staff and all else who helped make this a memorable day.

My Plate

MY PLATE Mrs. Duron’s Family and Community Service Class is teaching pre-k students about nutrition! The first lesson discussed My Plate, which replaced the food pyramid. The students came over to the high school class, and Nikki read I Will Never, Not Ever Eat a Tomato. This book encourages children to try new foods, especially healthy foods. Then the pre-k students colored their My Plate placemat and made healthy trail mix baggies. It was a great success. The students learned a lot and enjoyed eating their healthy snacks. Ms. Silvin, Ms. Smith, and Ms. Zuvia’s classes will return each month to learn more about eating healthy.

TEDDY BEAR DRIVE Written by Breana Thompson

During October, the FCCLA members conducted a teddy bear drive. Stacey High School students donated a total of 248 stuffed animals. The sophomore class won the competition, bringing in 97 bears which earned them an ice cream party. FCCLA will donate the animals to the Fischer House. The children staying at the Fischer house will then be able to enjoy the company of a new “furry friend.�
