Principal's news

April 4, 2014

Dear Robert E. Lee Parents /Guardians,

The North East PTA will be hosting their Annual Used Book Sale at Blossom Athletic Center this weekend.  Additional information regarding the Used Book Sale is provided in the PTA section of this letter.  We would like to encourage you to support our PTA by attending the Book Sale.  The sale begins today Friday, April 4, 2014.

Our first round of ELA testing went well; we appreciate everyone who showed up on time and took the test seriously.  Our ELA teachers prepared the students well and we know the outcome will reflect it.  I would like to give a special “Thank you” to Monica Ruiz-Mills, our counselors, and faculty and staff who helped make this week and the testing process run smoothly.  The next round of EOC testing will begin May 5 and run through May 9th.  Please encourage your son/daughter to continue to attend tutorial sessions for the remaining EOC exams.

Great job to our athletic department: golf, baseball, softball, tennis and track are ALL in season and students are representing Lee High School very well.  As a reminder, there are numerous events and activities taking place at Lee High School.  Thank you for your continued support and commitment to all of our programs.  

JROTC will compete this weekend at Clark High School.  We also have two students selected for the All District Bowling Team; they will compete at the All Star Game this Sunday in College Station.  GOOD LUCK to ALL!!

Theatre and Choir news:
This is just a friendly reminder that our Allied Campus Theatre Yard Sale will be THIS Saturday, April 5th from 7 AM - 1 PM.  Lee Choir will be having their Hamburger Plate Fundraiser from 11 AM - 1 PM, stop by around lunch and support both groups!

Thank you so much to those of you who have donated yard sale items, everything donated is truly appreciated!

Senior Parents:
Please remind your son/daughter that school is not over.  It is imperative that students remain focused and on track to pass all their classes.  Lack of attendance increases the risk of not receiving course credits.  There are also a large number of seniors who have financial obligations that require payment before they can walk the stage.  Directors, sponsors and teachers have been having conversations with students regarding outstanding obligations.  Please contact Assistant Principals Corby Brown at 356-0882 or Dr. Caprica Wells at 356-0826, if you have any questions or concerns.
