It is a great time of year to find in your heart the gift of kindness and giving.  Lopez PALS, Art Club and Family Consumer Science Classes are sponsoring a food and hygiene drive for the NEISD McKinney Homeless shelter.  The items will be donated and will be given to NEISD homeless students and their families.  The drive will last from November 28th until December 15th.  Our goal is for each Lopez student to bring AT LEAST 2 items of the hygiene or AT LEAST 2 food items .  Please bring the items to school or send them with your child.  There will be a drop box for the items by the front office.

Giving Tree service project in November will run from November 7th-December 2. We are selling leaves for our “Lopez Giving Tree.” The goal is to raise $500 to do an extreme room makeover for a pediatric oncology patient. We are partnering with the Got Hope Club at Reagan High School for this project.


Hey Lopez Panthers,

Are you ready to pass it forward? Synergy! Lopez artists in Mrs. Volz art class painted rocks with inspirational quotes on them.  The artist have hidden the painted rocks with inspirational words around campus and in the Stone Oak Reagan cluster area.  Have you found one? If you find one you can pass it on to someone, hide it so others can find it or if you want to keep the rock and you are a Lopez student you are welcome to join the artists in Mrs. Volz art room Thursday mornings to paint a new rock and pass  on a little kindness. If you are a community member you are encouraged to paint some "kindness" at home and then......Pass it on! Follow us on Instagram Lopez_Artt.   Post a photo of the rock you find on your own Instagram page #Lopezrocks .

Lopez Rocks Responsibly

Place rocks outside (dog park, paths) of public areas, not inside of stores or businesses, and not private property or yards.   You don't have to hide them, you can give them to a friend of family member.

Got Hope? Lopez NJHS would like to share hope with children who are battling cancer.  In the main hallway you might have noticed a brown tree that is going up.  That is our Lopez Giving Tree.  You can purchase a leaf for the tree for only $1.  The money raised will be used to make-over the hospital room of a pediatric cancer patient.  Our goal is to sell 500 leaves and make-over the room of one pediatric patient.  Today is the LAST day to buy a tree for a dollar. You can buy a leaf anytime today from Mrs. Myers in C200, Mrs. Harrison in A200, or Mrs. Carsten in A203.  Our goal is to sell 500 leaves.

  • Lopez Families as we bid goodbye to the 2016 school summer  it is good to reflect on the ways we sharpened our saws. Our community is comprised of hard working, highly devoted people. As we work hard, we also take time to reward ourselves (Sharpen the Saw). Please consider sharing with us your experiences of how you have sharpened your saw  this past summer while you were on vacation or attending an event or function. Please e-mail your photos to Mr. Toback at or bring in your developed pictures to Mr. Toback-Room A205. The pictures can be in grayscale or  color. They will be displayed inside the school for all to enjoy.

We Serve
Submit photos
  • Our Lopez students serve in many ways. Please share photos of your child serving the SA Community and beyond.  Please send photos of your child to give a share narrative as to what the event was.
