I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all of our students and staff back to school for the 2012-2013 school year. We hope you have all had a relaxing summer and are looking forward to the new school year.
Orientation dates are August 28, 2012 for incoming 6th grade students; August 29, 2012 for incoming 7th grade students, and August 30, 2012 for incoming 8th grade students. Orientation will take approximately 1 1/2 hours. Students will be able to pick up textbooks, have their ID picture taken, and take care of other miscellaneous items including purchase of PE clothes, school locks and yearbook. In order to receive a locker assignment during Orientation, students need to return a corrected and updated emergency card. Parents may turn in immunization records and will be able to register for the Student information system. A welcome back letter, emergency card, and Picture information will be sent home to all students the week of August 13, 2012.

A few important dates to mark on your calendars: September 5, 2012 is the first day of school. Back to School Night will be Thursday September 13th. . Students will be dismissed that day at 2:10 Make-up Picture Day is Thursday September 27th .
My continuing goal for Las Colinas is to foster a safe, clean, positive and respectful learning environment for all students and staff; a school learning environment where students can develop into positive and productive citizens well prepared for their future.
I am looking forward to welcoming everyone back to school on Wednesday September 5th.
