Happy Fathers Day

Dads, your child benefits when you join PTA.

Studies show students perform better when BOTH parents are involved in education. Men and women think differently and bring different perspectives to PTA. PTAs are more vibrant and more appealing to all when both men and women help run them.

Whew, and what to do

Well done Marcus High School students!

Congratulations 2017 Graduates!

Take a few days to relax and clear you head. But only a few days! Then:

  • Get a part-time job
  • Do some volunteer work
  • Take a trip, write a blog
  • Read, read and then read something hard
  • Practice, practice and play your instrument
  • Enroll [in] some preparation or enrichment courses

These ideas and more from College 101 – don’t let the name fool you, this is is good for all students!

Back to School Fair Supply Drive

Marcus High School needs your help! Lewisville ISD will be hosting their Annual Back to School Fair on August 5th, 2017. For the event to be a success, schools around the district will be donating new supplies.

Supplies will be used to stuff Kindergarten – 12th grade backpacks that will be provided to registered students at the Back to School Fair.

Here is how you can help:

Marcus HS – one package of 3×5 index cards
The cards can be deposited in the collection box at the front of the building. If you would rather donate a $1.00 or make a monetary donation, the money collected will be used to purchase supplies.
 
Marcus 9 – lined filler paper.
These items can be dropped off in to Marcus 9 office.

 
Any donation is greatly appreciated.

For more information and how you can volunteer to help:

Thank you in advance for your support!

Do the Texas Two-Step to Raise the Age!

HB 122 is stalled in the Senate! The House of Representatives passed legislation that would raise the age of mandatory adult prosecution from 17 to 18 years of age, allowing non-violent offenders who are 17 years of age to be charged as a minor.

Step 1: Call Senator John Whitmire, Chair of the Senate Criminal Justice Committee, and let him know we want a hearing on HB 122 to Raise the Age of adult criminal responsibility. You can find the numbers for his Austin and Houston offices below:

  • Austin office: 512-463-0115
  • Houston office: 713-864-8701

Step 2: Click here to email your Senator and Lt. Governor Dan Patrick to ensure the Raise the Age bill gets heard in the Senate.

We need your voices to #backthefuture of Texas children. They are our No. 1 priority!
