News and Announcements

Parent Notice: Pearson Homework Helper Technical Issues - Oct. 1, 2014
Dear Lewisville ISD Parents:

As you may know, Lewisville ISD has experienced technical issues with the Pearson website our 6th, 7th and 8th graders use for math. We know some students are having difficulty with web pages loading slowly, as well as lost assignments during the upload process. Students who lost their assignments using the online homework feature may make up the lost work. Parents with questions about resubmitting lost work may visit with their student’s teacher. Read more by clicking the link above.
Downing Middle School Band Goes Digital
iPad stands help students perfect technique and sound. Plato said, “I would teach children music, physics and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning.”
Marcus Volleyball Club Night - sponsored by the Marcus Volleyball Booster Club
MVBC is hosting club night tonight at 6:30 in the Marauder gym. Various USAV North Texas Region clubs will be represented. Good opportunity to check out their offerings. Club volleyball tryouts are held beginning the end of October for the spring 2015 season.
