LISD Special Back to School Section (Fall 2002)


Welcome to the 2002-2003 school year. The teachers and administrative staff look forward to this school year with excitement and enthusiasm.

LISD employees have worked hard during the summer months in order to be prepared for the upcoming school year. LISD has just completed one of its most productive years in school history. Academic as well as athletic successes are at an all time high. Last year provided the highest academic rating ever for the LISD. There were 43 different high school sports teams that traveled into the state playoffs. Congratulations are in order to all of the students, coaches, and sponsors for this success.

We anxiously await the arrival of this new year so that the LISD can once again help contribute to the success of the children of the Lubbock community. It is only with the partnership of the parents, community, and school employees working together that allows for this success. Once again we welcome you to be a part of this coming school year.

My School Friends!
When we depart our schools at the end of any school year, one of
the first things we do is start planning to return to meet our "friends" all over again. It's those friendships that help us to return to our schools year after year from the minute we join kindergarten until the day we hug goodbye at high school graduation.

While we in education would like to think that our students are so in love with learning that they are eager to return to school, the reality is that they like the education but LOVE the friends they make each year. Some friends are brought along from years past, while each school year brings the excitement of new people and new friends with new ideas and new ways of sharing.

Ask any student what they like best about school and they will tell you, " I love being with my friends!" When asked to name the top accomplishments in their school life, the 2001-2002 valedictorians and salutatorians for the Lubbock ISD said, "Having all my friends and teachers."

The cover of this year's LISD Tabloid is dedicated to all those friends past and present. In many cases those friendships that were made in school become part of a life-long "friendship network" of support to be called upon when the need arises or just for conversation.

Amigo, Freund, Ami, Amico, Teacher = Friend! The languages of friendship will abound with the beginning of the new school year in Lubbock ISD. We hope all of our students are glad to return to their friends. Together friends support their schools and their education! Welcome back to all our LISD friends!
