Order uniforms through one of our approved uniform vendors, FlynnO’Hara Uniforms, 817-292-5437, online or at retail location 1125 Oakland Boulevard, Fort Worth, 76103 and School Closet, 877-725-6467, online only. Check the student handbook in the resource depot for uniform specifics (MS and HS athletic wear through FlynnO’Hara).
On designated Spirit Gear days students can wear their Eagle Red shirt, or any approved spirit gear shirts. Most Fridays throughout the year are Spirit Gear days. Eagle Red shirts are sold by the Student Council at the beginning of the school year, typically at the Back to School Celebration. Spirit gear items may be purchased at the Spirit Store, located in the Byers Center, or through our online Spirit Store as new items are offered through the year. We also have Red Out days in which everyone is encouraged to wear a red spirit gear shirt or their Eagle Red shirt.
Our lunch program is coordinated by Campus Cuisine. Through their website, you can access the lunch calendar, place orders, and pay for student lunches. Some items, such as chips and Gatorade, are sold as a la carte items in the cafeteria. These items can be purchased without preorder, and are paid for with cash or through the student’s RenWeb account. Parents can place money on that account through ParentsWeb or the RenWeb Home App. More information can be found in the Resource Depot and updated information is sent out before school starts.
There are several methods the school uses to communicate with Eagle families. The website will be an invaluable tool throughout the year. Through the website, you can access school calendars, athletics schedules, and information from organizations like our PTO and Booster Club. We house important documents and policies in Resource Depots that are divided into key areas to make it easier for you to find what you need. Some examples include school supply lists, handbooks, newsletter archives and other forms or links. During the school year, we send a weekly newsletter via email to all our Eagle families.
Getting Ready for the Year:
As mentioned in the communication section, on our school website you will find Resource Depots that are full of information for students and parents. Visit the Resource Depot for your child’s grade level to find School Supply lists (including iPad specifications and required Apps for 7th-12th grade) that will be needed to start the school year off right. Middle school families should note that our 8th grade DC/NY trip is in February.
Every 7th-12th grade student is responsible for purchasing an iPad with the appropriate requirements to use in the classroom and at home each day. New students attend one of several Tech Boot Camps offered during the summer. These camps are come and go opportunities that allow us to set up programs on the iPad that students will need when school starts. Having it set up beforehand ensures they don’t miss critical emails and information before the year begins.
After School Care:
Our after-school care serves students Pre-K through 5th grade until 5:00 p.m., for an additional fee. Additional details on extended care are available in the school office.
It can be challenging to learn your way around a new campus. The Drop-off and Pick-up Map will be helpful as you learn your way around LCCS.
Back to School Celebration:
We host an evening in August as a fun Eagle family way to kick off the new school year. This is a great oppotunity to hear from the Head of School, meet and greet other Eagle families, take care of things like picking up Eagle Red shirts, or learning more about LCCS programs. There is also a designated evening to drop off supplies and meet the teacher a few days before school starts. New students will be notified of orientation times that might apply to their grade level.
Parent Teacher Organization:
Our PTO benefits our students and teachers in many ways throughout the year. The group coordinates events ranging from the annual garage sale to Teacher Appreciation Week. You will want to stop by the PTO table during the Back to School Celebration. Attending a PTO coffee during the year is a great way to get connected with other Eagle parents. PTO also sponsors many of our “free money opportunities” that allow you to support the school through purchases you are already making for your family. These are excellent opportunities for friends and extended family to join in channeling support to LCCS!
